organizations. The audit quality is severely affected from using manual procedures. Advancement

to discover the use of technology in audit from Pakistan perspective. The researcher tried to
improve knowledge from reading various literatures regarding how can technology play role in
transforming traditional audit procedures to automated audit procedures in Pakistan.

satisfaction level among auditors and companies. It is recommended that top management should
support by showing its willingness to invest funds in technology. Auditors can get better result by
