“The profession is on the precipice of a significant change not seen since the enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

MindBridge’s Chief Executive Officer, Leyton Perris, had the following to say:
“MindBridge has long realized that driving widespread innovation and transformation within the audit and accounting industry requires more than a pure technology play. Rather, it is a complicated marriage of people, process and technology that will drive advancement for professional service (CPA) firms as well as practitioners within internal audit and the office of the CFO. Today’s announcement, coming less than two weeks after our first-of-a-kind for the industry AI algorithm validation, further underpins our unwavering commitment to aligning human capital competence with technology leadership. Our recent, staggering growth and cross industry adoption continues to validate and prove that change is upon us.”
For auditors and advisors, this announcement will further strengthen engagement with industry leaders, membership bodies, alliances and networks to drive real-world understanding of how our technology can best be embraced within firms and organizations.
