Fast spreadsheet compliance and audit tool.

Lyquidity Solutions : 10 April, 2008  (New Product)
ComplyXL provides adherence to compliance regulations and enables ease of auditing for the enterprise's collection of spreadsheets.
ComplyXL from Lyquidity helps auditors speed up the spreadsheet audit process with easy access to comparisons and snapshots of changes from the previous audit.

ComplyXL snapshots are saved by users to demonstrate to auditors adherence to agreed compliance procedures and so ensure clarity of the audit process. To access this audit trail or to create new snapshots auditors needed access to the source workbook; with ComplyXL 2.3.4 auditors can now access a central repository of workbooks eliminating the need to access, and potentially change, live workbooks. This means more time spent reviewing workbooks rather than hunting for workbooks and trying to find out what has been changed.

The snapshot capability gives auditors a key tool to see and understand the audit trail of the spreadsheets as well as providing documentary evidence for compliance. It allows auditors and accountants to check and compare versions of spreadsheets without the need to open them.

Benefits include:.

* Audit process streamlined providing more time to focus on assuring spreadsheets and process compliance.
* Auditing process more transparent (what comparisons were carried out, what criteria was used - formulas, arrays, hidden cells, etc).
* Detailed documentation maintained and available to be included in the wider compliance process.
* Documentation kept within the central repository so aids Sarbanes Oxley compliance.
* Confirmation of tests that have been performed even if they reveal no changes have occurred.

This enhancement is one of many benefits ComplyXL brings to organizations who enjoy the flexibility of spreadsheets but want to ensure compliance. Other benefits include:.

* Version control - what changes have been made to the spreadsheets and what were they.
* User rights defined for spreadsheets - who made the changes and when.
* Access controls for spreadsheets - only users with the right to change spreadsheets are able to.
* BI style reporting for Sarbanes Oxley compliance - strengthening the transparency for the audit process.
* Full history of spreadsheets - with the ability to compare and if necessary, roll back changes.
* Spreadsheet discovery - do those spreadsheets need control?
* ComplyXL seamlessly links in to SharePoint.
