Reynolds Group improves audit efficiency and quality with Pentana

Reynolds implemented Pentana in 2012 as a productivity solution for internal audit including SOX testing and operational audit automation. The criteria that Reynolds applied to the procurement of their audit automation solution encompassed the needs to:

  • Deploy a standard audit methodology across all audit teams
  • Capture multiple types of information in one easy to access location: audit universe, controls (SOX and Non-SOX ), audit programs and work papers, audit findings and ethics hotline case tracking to allow for analysis and reporting to management and the audit committee.
  • Create reports efficiently and in a timely manner
  • View all segment audit work papers from a central location for quality
  • control purposes
  • Increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the audit process
  • Implement a comprehensive database of tests that could be shared across the group (rather than starting from scratch with each audit)
  • Make it easy for the audit lead to review work when all papers are clearly organised and labeled



  • Thousands of hours of auditors’ time saved each year
  • Increased accuracy of audit reports and management information
  • The audit process is easier to control and manage
  • Stronger management of SOX compliance
  • Improved quality control described as “priceless”
  • Rapid implementation and deployment delivers rapid benefits realisation
