New Version Helps Companies Leverage Risk Trends to Truly Manage and Understand
Changes Made to Risky Spreadsheets

2013 IIA General Audit Management Conference, Las Vegas, NV (Business Wire) – March 18, 2013 – Incisive (booth #100), a developer of award-winning enterprise-class spreadsheet risk analysis and management solutions, today announced a new version of Locator, the company’s solution for spreadsheet discovery, risk assessment and risk management. With new risk trending views and interactive reporting, Locator 1.5 helps organizations truly manage and understand the changes made to their riskiest spreadsheets.

“While discovering and ranking spreadsheets is critical to creating an effective spreadsheet risk program, it means very little if the information isn’t actively managed,” said Diane Robinette, President for Incisive. “Companies require complete visibility into spreadsheet changes as well as the ability to track those changes on an ongoing basis. Locator 1.5 makes it easy for organizations to leverage risk trends and actively monitor data within the most important spreadsheets.”

Locator delivers fast, accurate and comprehensible spreadsheet discovery and risk assessment. It speeds the identification and risk ranking of critical spreadsheets within an organization. Using flexible and configurable user-defined attributes and priorities, Locator helps organizations identify their riskiest spreadsheets and offers transparency into its calculations so its results are trustworthy.

Locator 1.5 lets companies:

  • Actively manage spreadsheet inventory, which includes all files on the network, not just those checked into an ERM system &bull
  • Track risk trends to quickly see if a spreadsheet’s risk level has increased, decreased or maintained over a period of time
  • Create interactive reports to easily view the most important information.

Locator 1.5 will be available at the end of March 2013. To see a demonstration of Locator 1.5, please visit booth #100 at the GAM Conference or email [email protected].
