E1:  Become an International Auditor for $995 or less*  -  Brian Palmquist- (All). *travel costs, cell phone/3G bills, software subscriptions not included!

At the last Audit Conference the presenter evaluated the four main tablet operating systems and the associated tablet computers that might suit auditors. This presentation will briefly refresh and update those findings (technology changes quickly), then move forward and examine how specific auditing concepts are (or are not) managed by available, inexpensive hardware and software. The balance between expense and customization will be examined in light of to-day’s constrained budgets. There will be specific focus on the emerging ability to audit offline in locations lacking connectivity, such as the shop floor, the building construction site, or the mountain road or pipeline under construction, synchronizing with integrated web-based enterprise systems when connections become available.
