Top Questions

Import data from virtually any data source using universal file conversion capabilities within IDEA including unstructured data (PDFs), text files, reports, major accounting packages and data from ODBC and SAP®.

To quickly identify similar records, the Fuzzy Duplicate tool identifies multiple, similar records due to data entry errors, different data recording conventions or fraud. Data groups can then be fine-tuned based on case sensitivity. There are 100+ industry tests included, such as Benfords Law, often applied to look for fraudulent transactions.

Inbuilt standard tests allow you to start using the product with just some basic understanding of what type of data you are dealing with. Comprehensive training courses are available to assist you with using the software, and we have lots of videos and FAQs to assist with more understanding.

To assist with easily analysing SAP® data on an ongoing basis , we have SmartExporter – a Windows based extraction tool, specifically designed to import SAP® data into Caseware IDEA. This tool is intuitive and easy to use, and will be able to assist you to extract and analyse SAP® data periodically if this is required. Call us to discuss your requirements further.
