    Please answer these questions as fully and completely as you can. This will allow our law firm to keep our auditing costs and expenses as reasonable as possible.

    Take any audit area where you ask questions on-site. Probably 80% of those questions can be asked via an exam. There are also another whole set of questions that an auditor never gets to because everybody gets exhausted or exasperated. Most of this goes away if the questions are asked remotely. Take the 50 "best" questions that Manny asks or the 50 most helpful ones you ask. At least 40 of those questions can be asked via a test/survey. Then there are another 25 questions that a friendly auditor simply never gets around to asking for a lot of reasons that have to do with client relations. the blank spots can either be followed-up with additional questions. Site visits are not going to go away. But why not cut a 3 day visit down to a half-day?
