       "I have used InPractice Audit Manual: The Cost-Effective Method for five years. We had previously used Auditplus, who dropped out of the marketplace. I have always found your InPractice Audit Manual to be comprehensive and easy to use. At our recent monitoring visit, it was the first time the inspector had seen an audit done using your system but he was very impressed with this system, and with our work recording! I have no hesitation in recommending your excellent software."
        - Norman A Thomas FCA, Turner and Brown, Preston, UK
  "I have been using the InPractice Audit Manual for a number of years. I find the manual easy to use and it enables me to focus my audit effort effectively. The time-saving benefits of using the system means I can undertake audits in accordance with the international auditing standards and still make a profit."
        - Julian Arnold ACA, John Davis & Co, Bristol, U.K.
   "I felt I had lost my way with audits and found that using PCAxxS was becoming more complex and time consuming. Time spent with InPractice Hot File Reviews has helped me to focus on auditing. "InPractice Audit Manual: The Cost-Effective Method" software proved to be easier and computer friendly."
        - Aidan Crilly FCA, Great Bookham, Surrey, U.K. (Regulated by ICAEW)
  "Thanks for the email. I have downloaded and all appears ok. After only a couple of hours last night I think I have the hang of it. It is just what we need."
        - Steve Miles FCA, Berry & Partners, Chartered Accountants, Leicester, U.K.
   "We just had an audit monitoring visit from our audit regulator. They were happy with InPractice Audit Manual: The Cost-Effective Method. They also complemented us on our audit files, and agreed that by us using your audit system we can reach the same conclusion with less work, and those savings can be passed onto our clients with more cost-effective audit fees."
        - Jeffrey Lermer FCA, Jeff Lermer & Associates, Barnet, London, U.K.
   "I have used "InPractice Audit Manual: The Cost-Effective Method" software at a previous firm and was so impressed that I have convinced my current employer to switch to this software. It is so much more user friendly than some of the other audit manuals on the market."
        - Andy Evangelou ACCA, London, U.K.
   "I have started my first audit on InPractice Audit Manual: The Cost-Effective Method. It does make a lot of difference in the thinking process and proper documentation of the audit/permanent file. I used AuditPlus at a local Big4 practice I worked at. I found AuditPlus to be bulky, cumbersome and took a lot of time to master and implement. I liked your software the very first few minutes I used it."
        - Shorab Cadersaib FCCA, Affinity Consultants Ltd, Mauritius
"We decided to change from the Merxxx audit pack to a more concise audit pack produced by InPractice Software.  The decision to change was based on the over bureaucratic nature of Merxxx audit system. We felt the constant to-ing and fro-ing results in the sign-off sections being left with too many opportunities to avoid or miss necessary procedures. In addition, the (Merxxx) pack was over voluminous. There developed a tendency in the audit team to rely on described procedures rather than on their own thought processes. For this reason we chose a more concise pack (InPractice) which has very straight forward sign-off procedures and is clearer as to what has or hasn't been done."
        3-partners ICAEW audit firm, Windsor, U.K. (Name and address provided)
They had an audit file review by InPractice and we noticed they had written this to their regulator.
"We have been very pleased to implement the InPractice Audit Manual: The Cost-Effective Method and our staff find it very user-friendly. Keep up the good work."
        - Jay Dhanjee, Dhanjee Associates & Cie, Mauritius
"The cross-referencing of InPractice Audit Manual software is fantastic."

"Just to let you know I had a letter from ICAEW lifting all restrictions on my firm's audit registration. Going forward I need to have one cold file review per year, starting in 2013, as part for my firm's normal annual ACR. Thanks for all your help to date with you audit file reviews."
- Julian Arnold ACA, John Davis & Co, Bristol, U.K.

"I prefer you to carry out a Hot File Review in a meeting so that I can make file improvements on spot and retrain before signing the audit report, instead of posting my audit file to someone anonymous whose report says all my work was faulty." - Auditor in N.W. London (Regulated by ICAEW)                

"The Monitoring Inspector was able to go through my audit file very quickly and was out of our office in half a day, thanks to the retraining and audit file review by you."
- Savage & Co, London (Regulated by ACCA)     

"I would like to thank you for your time, patience and professional service. I gained a tremendous amount from your review. The presentation of my files has improved considerably."  

- Ruby Marlane Barton & Co, Twickenham, Middx (Regulated by ICA Scotland)     

"Further to my email, the results of the hot file reviews have now been considered by (name of audit regulator's department).  We are pleased to note that the second hot file review identified fewer areas for improvement than the first hot file review and that we are finding the time spent with the reviewer beneficial in gaining knowledge, particularly with respect to improving our audit documentation. I look forward to receiving the results of the next hot file review, which will hopefully demonstrate that further improvements in our audit work have been achieved and that the improvements already made have been sustained and built upon."
