Data analysis is now essential, it enable us to continue to add value and provide an effective internal audit service. In today’s automated world it is essential that we are able to draw out intelligence from the information that is held within the Council’s IT systems.

Using IDEA at both my current and previous companies has helped give a detailed view as to how well internal accounting controls are working. Ledgers are now more complete and accurate. Target acquisitions’ accounting controls were reviewed quickly and accurately. Exception reporting is now clearer and faster.
