RedRover Software debuted RedRover Audit, a tool that uses human behavior research to audit Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.

The software is designed to give those who review or certify Excel spreadsheets confidence that the formulas, data and logic in the spreadsheets are accurate.

The software visually depicts the spreadsheet by regions to show how it is constructed. It produces a visual "heat map" overlay that shows potential problems by likelihood of risk, and points out inconsistencies by examining the underlying data and antecedents, not just formulas. Groups can work together to track and review approvals cell by cell for improved audit compliance.

The software costs $695 and is available from It works with Microsoft Office Excel 2003 and above.
