Summary

Learn about the MindBridge engagement map and how to leverage it for a better experience with MindBridge.


Overview

An engagement map is an essential planning tool for your data-driven risk-based audits. You can use it to align on timelines, training, and resources such as client data requirements. Additionally, an engagement map can help identify libraries to set up based on industry, common financial account groupings, and custom ratios.

By completing an engagement map and reviewing it with your Customer Success Manager, MindBridge can better establish a clear line of communication with the appropriate audit managers in charge of each engagement. This ensures your teams have the right information, such as ERP guides and data requirements, at the right time.
