Turning data into limitless possibilities
Accounting practices are finding it increasingly difficult to look across large volumes of engagement and practice-wide data to obtain timely insights and identify trends for client advisory and internal process improvements.
Traditional analytical tools pose several limitations in such areas as system integration, data extraction and analysis. Firms need a smart, seamless yet simplified data-driven solution. Say hello to the latest solution in the Caseware ecosystem for business intelligence in accounting — Caseware Sherlock, which can help your firm transition to an insights-driven culture.
Powerful, secure, cloud app with a sleek user interface
Sherlock provides powerful insights from a large volume of engagement data to uncover valuable trends and insights. It includes built-in security features that protect data and ensure only authorized access. The user-friendly interface allows you to easily access and analyze data, create reports and share insights.
Automated data transformation of Caseware engagements
Sherlock fully automates the process of extracting data from your engagements, loading it into a centralized database and transforming it into a format that allows you to easily analyze data from all engagements for business insights. No more manual data entry and manipulation, which is time-consuming and limits data integrity.
Flexible visualization path to turn big data into insights
Sherlock is designed to be highly adaptable and customizable, allowing you to tailor your data visualization approach to your specific needs and goals. You can easily visualize data in a way that makes it easy to identify trends, patterns and other insights that might not be immediately apparent when working in a single engagement.
Deeper insights to elevate every phase of the engagement
Profile your clients on key data points to identify opportunities for client advisory services and gain deeper insights from client financials to analyze year-over-year trends. Benchmark a client’s data against others in the same industry to suggest avenues for growth.
