We’ve got a great newsletter for you this month, packed full of business assurance news and tips.
As this edition is going out on Valentine’s Day, many of us will be indulging in romantic nights out with our loved ones. But don’t be tempted to try and slip the bill in on your expenses because we know that all alert auditors will be on the lookout for such items on February 14th! And of course the smart auditors will be using their data analytics tools to make this an easy task.
This month, our product spotlight is on ACL AX Core. If you have ever wondered about the benefits of progressing to the server platform, have a look at the article from Ben Hawley. You would be surprised about how good it can be even for a small team. You can also find out about how to sign up for a trial of ACL Acerno, the Excel Add-on for ACL.
There is also the latest on Data Governance from DataConsulting’s Ian Anderson, some great resources for using data analytics in a manufacturing organisation, some thoughts from Peter Millar on fraud prevention, and the latest events that we are at which we are presenting and attending.
AX Core is at the heart of the AuditExchange, providing increased speed, security and automation to your audit analytics. Find out more about how you can make your audit engagements more productive with AX Core and what it can do for your organisation.
Regular readers of our newsletter will have already heard a lot about the new ACL add-on for Microsoft Excel, ACL Acerno. Now we are pleased to be able to offer a 90-day trial of Acerno, to really get a feel for what it can do for you.
As was alluded to in the introduction, we all know where to go when our computer breaks or when our overtime isn’t paid. But what happens when we have questions about our data? Open up the phone book and I expect most organisations don’t have a data contact. So why do we need one? Doesn’t IT deal with data?
