It is natural to assume that startups solving various business problems through automation are more likely to adopt Technology for bringing improvisation within their own internal processes. However, would that inclination remains the same when it comes to leveraging technology for Governance is a question mark. That is not the case for Trellis Housing Finance Limited – a fin-tech startup that is solving the housing problem by not only digitizing the customer’s financing journey but also extending these financial services to the unbanked population of Pakistan.
Trellis recently decided to further strengthen their Internal Audit function, and for that purpose it chose Hyphen’s Abilite, an easy-to-use end-to-end Internal Audit Management Solution.
“As a practice that is on a mission to enhance governance across entities, it is heartening to see an alignment of that mission with Trellis. We promise to a) bring in all the players of an Internal Audit Eco System to our solution b) facilitate linking the work of Internal Auditor with the overall organizational objectives c) eliminate time consuming manual tasks and d) provide an embedded repository of the industry wide risks and controls. This is perhaps what Trellis was also looking for and we are excited on the beginning of a strong professional relationship based on shared vision” says, Faheem Piracha CEO Hyphen Consultancy.
Hyphen believes that Internal Auditors have a huge role to play in how organizations are governed. Therefore, we have been at the forefront of supporting Internal Auditors since inception. From publishing Pakistan’s first report on the “State of Internal Audit in Pakistan”, to conducting an Internal Audit Summit titled “From Where Were to Where Are” and working with various entities on co-sourced and outsourced Internal Audit Models within and outside Pakistan.
Abilite is one of the key initiatives in this regard and Hyphen’s team is geared to continue supporting internal audit functions across the globe.
