Audit and compliance technology maker ACL Services Ltd. and global information optimization software and service provider Datawatch Corporation formed a strategic alliance that will help provide audit, risk and compliance professionals with the ability to analyze data trapped in PDFs, HTML files, print files and other content-rich data sources.

The union of ACL and Datawatch technologies is designed to provide visibility into corporate data, enhance data quality and strengthen business assurance activities.

ACL will sell the product under the ACL Importer brand through both its direct sales and global channel partners. ACL and Datawatch are supporting the strategic alliance with joint marketing, services, sales and certification activities to accelerate adoption of the offering.

“Audit, risk and compliance professionals continually seek technologies that help them deliver more responsive, accurate guidance for their businesses,” said ACL president and chief operating officer Laurie Schultz. “This agreement furthers our mission to provide this technology in a convenient, easy-to-use solution. The efficiencies and capabilities of the combined ACL and Datawatch offering will allow our mutual customers to cost-effectively reduce effort and improve success.”
