SOFTWARE developer Ideagen plc has announced the latest release of its market leading auditing software, Ideagen Pentana.
Ideagen Pentana 4.1 brings with it a series of functional enhancements that will help internal audit and risk departments save time, increase efficiency and maximise the power of collaborative working.
The product is already used by major global brands such as BT and Heineken as well as some of the leading accountancy and audit firms, including BDO in their Risk Assurance Department.
As well as a series of minor enhancements, Pentana 4.1 includes major new features, three of which are mentioned below, such as:
- Key Issues or Strategic Risks to manage high-level, strategic or macro risks
- Audit sampling to integrate with data analytics software and generate audit samples and totals directly into the structured system
- New Web Browser Interface for occasional business users focusing on “My Actions”, “My Action Updates” and “Incident Reporting”
Ideagen’s Managing Director of Audit Solutions, Ken Ebbage, said: “We are delighted to announce the availability of Ideagen Pentana 4.1, which has been developed using feedback from our extensive customer base.
“The latest release brings with it new opportunities for organisations to combine the benefits of audit management with detailed audit testing in a single system and the introduction of the web browser interface will bring a whole new dimension to the product.
“The release of Ideagen Pentana 4.1 is an exciting one for the company and we are confident that it will help to cement its place as the leading auditing software on the market.”
Pentana is developed using the latest Microsoft technologies and helps integrate all aspects of the audit cycle from annual planning to detailed risk assessment and controls testing, through to action tracking and Audit Committee reporting.
Pentana can equally be used for Enterprise Risk Management, SOX and other regulatory compliance, or any application where risk assessment and centralised action tracking is required.
