ACL Add-In for Excel

A free tool that takes Excel to the next level for auditors, from the company that brought you the industry standard for financial controls analytics

Microsoft® Excel is an amazingly popular and very useful general-purpose tool. But, as powerful as Excel is, it wasn’t purpose-built for use by professionals such as auditors and compliance investigators.

After all, we’ve all made a formula mistake or struggled to maintain an audit trail of work we’ve done in spreadsheets. ACL Add-In for Excel bridges the gap between standard Excel functions and what auditors need to do their jobs. And, it’s free!
