The word “audit” might sound daunting, but it’s actually one of the most important things you can do to evaluate your company’s success and make positive, impactful change. It allows you to test your system for worst-case scenarios to see how it holds up. You can analyze the results and use them to develop beneficial projects and plans for the future. Audits are an incredibly powerful tool, so it’s important that you work with the right people if you want those benefits to reach your SMB.
