An IT Audit Service That Works for Your Business

TechPath’s IT audit is designed to give you a clear understanding of where you stand when it comes to the technology in your business.  It takes an in-depth look at how IT fits in with your business plans, pinpoints any risks and potential cost savings, and highlights opportunities that can transform your daily operations.

An IT Audit takes a holistic approach and helps you better understand IT in your business.

  • Gain a clear understanding of your current IT situation – valuable information outlining all elements of technology
  • Uncover the source of performance issues – helps improve day-to-day productivity and staff satisfaction
  • Align business and technology – achieve greater business efficiency with IT that directly supports your business goals and processes
  • Security and vulnerabilities checked – rest easy knowing your systems and data is safe and secure
  • Get the most out of your IT budget – pinpoint where funds might be better utilised
  • A summary of actionable items – a thorough report that is easy to understand with a clear path forward

Our process involves an in-depth analysis of a company’s technical needs and capabilities. Among other things, it covers applications, hardware infrastructure, cloud, licensing, warranty status, backup processes, and hardware capacity.

As part of the process, TechPath talks not only to IT staff but also to key stakeholders within the business about its direction and technology challenges. This helps to make sure the resulting report is compiled based on current and future needs.

  • Full network analysis
  • Interviews with users and key stakeholders
  • IT supplier’s assessment for cost and suitability
  • Full asset inventory
  • Technology gap analysis
  • Report containing actionable items
  • Fully costed proposal and IT strategy

After our team conducts your review, you receive a report that outlines each aspect of your IT environment in detail. Any weaknesses will be clearly explained, outlining risks, and potential effects. Any threat of hardware failure or data loss is clearly defined to help you make well supported decisions about your technology environment.

Audits prices start from $1,490 ex GST, determined by the size and complexity of your network.
