Accounting Information Systems provides a comprehensive knowledgebase of the systems that generate, evaluate, summarize, and report accounting information. Balancing technical concepts and student comprehension, this textbook introduces only the most-necessary technology in a clear and accessible style. The text focuses on business processes and accounting and IT controls, and includes discussion of relevant aspects of ethics and corporate governance. Relatable real-world examples and abundant end-of-chapter resources reinforce Accounting Information Systems (AIS) concepts and their use in day-to-day operation. Now in its fourth edition, this popular textbook explains IT controls using the AICPA Trust Services Principles framework—a comprehensive yet easy-to-understand framework of IT controls—and allows for incorporating hands-on learning to complement theoretical concepts. A full set of pedagogical features enables students to easily comprehend the material, understand data flow diagrams and document flowcharts, discuss case studies and examples, and successfully answer end-of-chapter questions. The book’s focus on ease of use, and its straightforward presentation of business processes and related controls, make it an ideal primary text for business or accounting students in AIS courses.

Accounting Information Systems 1e covers the four roles for accountants with respect to information technology: 1. Users of technology and information systems, 2. Managers of users of technology, 3. Designers of information systems, and 4. Evaluators of information systems. Accountants must understand the organisation and how organisational processes generate information important to management. Richardson's focus is on the accountant's role as business analyst in solving business problems by database modeling, database design, and business process modeling. Unlike other texts that provide a broad survey of AIS related topics, this text concentrates on developing practical, real-world business analysis skills.

The purpose of this text is to help students develop a strong conceptual foundation in accounting information systems (AIS) that can serve as a basis for lifelong learning. The texta s approach has emerged from the authorsa extensive experience gained through teaching the AIS course at multiple institutions. This text is a flexible resource that can be adapted to meet the varying needs of different students, faculty, and institutions. Using a business process approach, this text (a) provides a strong conceptual foundation in accounting systems and control, (b) enables students to use this foundation in developing and evaluating accounting applications and in problem solving, and (c) presents information in a way that facilitates student learning. Throughout the text, the authors emphasize the relevance of the content to accountants and the roles they play as designer, user and evaluator of information systems. The text provides numerous problem-solving aids to help students develop skills in documenting and analyzing transaction cycles and AIS data, identifying risks and controls, using accounting applications, and designing and evaluating AIS. A set of core cases used throughout the text for illustration and assignments assists integration. A comprehensive case at the end of the text gives students further opportunity to demonstrate understanding. A supplement is available to help students learn how a relational database (MS Access) can be used to implement an AIS.

This book contains a collection of research papers on accounting information systems including their strategic role in decision processes, within and between companies. An accounting system is a complex system composed of a mix of strictly interrelated elements such as data, information, human resources, IT tool, accounting models and procedures. Accounting information systems are often considered the instrument by default for accounting automation. This book aims to sketch a clear picture of the current state of AIS research, including design, acceptance and reliance, value-added decision making, interorganizational links, and process improvements. The contributions in this volume emphasize that AIS has grown into a powerful strategic tool. The book provides evidence for this observation by examining a wide range of current issues ranging from theory development in AIS to practical applications of accounting information systems. In particular it focuses on themes of growing interest in the realm of XBRL and Financial Reporting, Management Information Systems, IT/IS Audit and IT/IS Compliance. The book will be of interest to financial and managerial accountants and IT/IS practitioners, including information systems managers and consultants.

Addressing technology's impact on traditional clerical and decision-making accounting processes, the authors of Accounting Information Systems Cases and Readings have, through their experience in the field, compiled a casebook of current AIS cases. The cases—featuring undisguised companies, real companies whose identities are disguised in order to allow the case specifics to be geared to the classroom, and fictitious companies used as a gathering of separate, but real issues reflecting the authors' practitioner experiences— provide an effective method whereby readers can glean real-world insights and knowledge. AIS cases covered include Cougar Collection Agency (A & B), McKracklin Aerospace (A-B), State Parks (A-D), Carey Manufacturing (A, B & C), Health Corporation (A), and Intel's Operations Service Center. For accounting professionals and systems analysts.

The revolutionary effects of using accounting information systems by displacing manual information systems in the private and public sectors cannot be overstated. The benefits of this substitution of set of processes include increased mathematical accuracy, predefined fields and coding tasks, and de-emphasis of manual clerical labor in favor of labor adept in data processing. Reporting can be significantly automated, facilitating managerial power and control at a distance and the proliferation of global enterprises. The potential detriments are rarely accurately, completely, and timely addressed as information system vendors, management consultants, and corporate procurement teams race toward the popularly conceived state of the art. Systems are ballyhooed as continually improving in processing speed, functionality, and capacity. Users of these automated systems may not consider big picture effects, and they may not intelligently consider the conduct risks to their own enterprises by concentrating such global reach and influence at high levels of senior management without dedicating adequate resources to verifying the accuracy, completeness, and timeliness of the information systems. This book considers these risks.

Fundamentals of Accounting Information Systems: An Internal Control Approach introduces students to the foundations of accounting information systems: how data flows through various accounting subsystems and the manner in which it is processed and converted into output for users. Written in an informal and conversational style, this textbook emphasizes the role of internal controls in accounting information systems alongside discussions of business process data flows. Examples and illustrations deal with entities of various sizes and in different industries, including not-for-profit and government organizations. The connection between basic business processes and accounting information systems is explored in computerized and semi-computerized environments. The textbook begins with overviews of internal control concepts, flowcharting, and business processes. Later chapters focus on specific business processes and the way data moves in and between them. These business process chapters include a capstone assignment, created so students will draw on the core questions in each chapter and apply them in a new situation.
