ACL Services Ltd., a provider of business assurance technology for audit and compliance professionals, on Wednesday introduced ACL Acerno, an add-in for Microsoft Excel specially designed for auditors working with data analyzed in ACL Desktop or AuditExchange.

ACL Acerno was designed to help audit teams expand their use of data analytics by enhancing Microsoft Excel. The software allows auditors to investigate the data, and document and track the progress of their investigation in an environment protected from accidental changes, while maintaining an audit trail of their work.

“We know that many customers use Excel to perform investigative tasks and present their findings,” said ACL vice president of services and product strategy John Verver. “ACL wanted to provide auditors a purpose-built, easy-to-use tool to mitigate the risks of using Excel.”
