Version 2.0 Provides Visibility and Control of Critical Spreadsheets While Easy-to-Use and Intuitive Features Encourage User Adoption

SuperStrategies 2013 Conference, Orlando, FL (Business Wire) – April 29, 2013 – Incisive (booth #104), a developer of award-winning enterprise-class spreadsheet risk analysis and management solutions, today announced Concourse 2.0, the next version of the company’s spreadsheet collaboration and controls application. Concourse gives audit teams and management unprecedented visibility and controls of critical spreadsheets while its easy-to-use and intuitive features boost user adoption and productivity.

“The awareness of spreadsheet risk management is rising in many organizations, but finding a solution that provides comprehensive transparency for audit teams yet requires minimal training for spreadsheet users is extremely difficult,” said Jill Dopp, Director of Marketing, for Incisive. “Concourse is designed for end users as well as audit teams that manage risk and exposure. End users can clearly see which spreadsheets to work on and what tasks to complete while using Excel. Audit teams can actively monitor the ‘who, what, when, where & why’ of all spreadsheet changes to guide users while driving their companies towards true spreadsheet risk management.”

Concourse focuses on collaborative working between spreadsheet users and audit teams by helping to create great project habits and reduce spreadsheet risk with no excessive demands on users.

Key Concourse benefits:

  • Helps reduce spreadsheet risk with version control and change tracking capabilities
  • Delivers visibility into corporate policy compliance through active monitoring of critical spreadsheets for changes, an audit trail of activities and tasks and configurable project and task reporting
  • Maintains integrity of spreadsheets with check in/check out
  • Clarifies responsibilities using access control to facilitate the segregation of duties and project team roles
  • Offers task management capabilities by allowing spreadsheet owners to create and assign tasks to others and assign tasks for specific regions of spreadsheets

Concourse complements all other Incisive products: Locator, for spreadsheet discovery and risk assessment; Xcellerator, for spreadsheet error and risk analysis; Validate, to authenticate information and find spreadsheet oversights; and Diff Interactive, to compare spreadsheets in real-time.

Concourse 2.0 will be available at the end of May 2013. To see a demonstration of Concourse 2.0, please visit booth #104 at the SuperStrategies Conference or email [email protected].
