A TECHNOLOGY PARTNER YOU CAN TRUST
Arbutus is an established, trusted and profitable company, providing leading edge analysis solutions for 12 years. Based on over 25 years of research and development, Arbutus was established by Grant Brodie, CPA, CA, founder of ACL and Chief Software Architect at ACL until 2003. For contractual reasons, Arbutus has only recently been able to offer our technology to audit and compliance groups.
DRIVE BETTER RESULTS & USAGE: ARBUTUS ANALYTICS
Arbutus is focused on delivering analysis and monitoring solutions that are high on results and usability but low on implementation and management risk:
SHARING, COLLABORATING AND MANAGING ANALYTICS
Arbutus supports a centralized, collaborative environment that is integrated into the desktop for better team sharing and efficiency. Both technical and non-technical users can easily access, use, and share test results for standard and repeatable analytics, reducing dependency on one person or a small group of experts. Minimize knowledge leakage when employees leave and provide a helpful, supportive resource for new members.
CENTRALIZED ANALYTICS AND MONITORING
The implementation and usage of a centralized analytics and monitoring solution should be simple and flexible − delivering meaningful results to your organization. Arbutus has greatly simplified and reduced the risk of designing, deploying and managing the analytics tests that will be applied to your key business areas. The Arbutus Enterprise Edition – the core of our centralized analytics – is a seamless extension of Arbutus desktop. No new user interface or other customization needs to be learned or adopted.
SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE AND ANALYTICS
Testing organizational data effectively means overcoming barriers within your complex IT environment and existing analysis solutions. Handling big data, disparate data, too many false positives, and long processing times are common issues with other data analysis solutions. Arbutus technology reduces or eliminates these technical barriers, while significantly improving audit findings and coverage with unique analytics capabilities.
EASY SWITCH FROM ACL
Arbutus is uniquely capable of reducing the risk typically experienced during a change in audit analytics solutions. For ACL users (with or without AX), deployment is straightforward with our ACL converter, preserving your existing tests and investment in technology. With a familiar interface that is much simpler to use than ACL, Arbutus requires minimal training and allows for rapid ramp up.
SUPPORT FOR ALL OF YOUR EXISTING TECHNOLOGY
