Xcellerator Selected as “Best New Product of the Year – Enterprise”

San Jose, Calif. (Business Wire) – November 20, 2013 – Incisive, a developer of enterprise-class spreadsheet risk analysis and management solutions, today announced that Xcellerator has been named a bronze winner in Best New Product of the Year – Enterprise category in Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts. This award follows Incisive’s win of the 2013 Top New Product in the Spreadsheet Tools category by Accounting Today Magazine.

“We are extremely honored to be acknowledged by this year’s Best in Biz Awards judging panel,” said Diane Robinette, President of Incisive. “ 2013 has been a great year for Incisive as we continue to build a highly innovative company. We are encouraged by the successes of our customers as they implement Xcellerator across their organizations to reduce spreadsheet risk and work more efficiently, and will continue to build best-in-class solutions to solve their toughest spreadsheet-related challenges.”

Xcellerator combines powerful error detection and investigative capabilities to comprehensively analyze large, complex spreadsheets for errors and possible risks. It significantly and reliably reduces material errors and possible fraud as well as the hours associated with detailed spreadsheet review. Xcellerator’s sophisticated logic is completely independent of Microsoft Office Excel and delivers higher-level functionality and unprecedented accuracy. Xcellerator gives management confidence that the spreadsheets used for critical business decisions are accurate.

The strength of Xcellerator lies in the accuracy of its nearly 40 standard and unlimited number of configurable tests. To display test results, Xcellerator leverages a patent-pending overlay technology that generates a color heat map – but without changing the spreadsheet. This color heat map clearly shows errors and potential risks for further examination.
