Information management software developer, Ideagen Plc, has launched the latest version of its market leading audit software Pentana.
Pentana 4.2 brings with it a series of functional enhancements that will increase intelligence of emerging risks as well as improve the flexibility of the system and enhance overall user experience.
The software will help internal audit and risk departments save time, increase efficiency and maximise the power of collaborative working as well as bring with it enhanced analytics and integration possibilities.
The highlight of the latest version includes a major new Action Tracking Web Module which allows action owners to log into Pentana via a Web Browser. Using the module, users can view their outstanding actions, add comments, provide evidence of implementation, and mark as ready for review while online.
Ken Ebbage, Ideagen’s Managing Director of Audit Solutions, said: “We are delighted to announce the availability of Pentana 4.2, which has been developed using feedback from our extensive customer base.
“This 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 has brought a whole new dimension to the product.
“This release is once again a very 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 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.
Version 4.2 has been released with important new features that deliver improved visibility of emerging risks, better analytics and integration with third party applications, a better and more flexible user experience, and greater flexibility and efficiency.
Amongst these new features are several that have been requested by customers and that have already been warmly received by early upgraders.
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.
