14 May 2003 – Audit trails a hit at Computer Faire

Issued by: AccTech systems

[Johannesburg, 14 May 2003] – Audit trails for Sage ERP Accpac, the newly released product from AccTech Solutions, part of the ATS Group, has been voted as one of the Computer Faire’s “Best of what’s new” products.

“The worldwide move by governments and businesses alike to comply with good corporate governance is resulting in these organisations re-visiting security of those organisations’ most important asset: information,” says Tertius Zitzke, Managing Director of the ATS Group.

“More and more organisations are wanting sophisticated, yet easy-to-use tools on their financial and operational systems to get adherence to approved business practices. Our Audit Trails for Sage ERP Accpac offers the perfect solution,” says Zitzke.

“This is the second year that one of our products were honoured at the annual Computer Faire as a ‘Best of what’s new’ product. Last year we enjoyed great success with our eWorkflow for Sage ERP Accpac, and Audit trails is set to follow in its footsteps,” says Nick Botha, Marketing Manager of ATS.

“Audit Trails acts as a supplement to Sage ERP Accpac’s auditing functionalities. Any additions, modifications and deletion events on the data structures of the core and supplementary Sage ERP Accpac modules get monitored. This means that business managers can at any time, pull a report and see exactly which data has been changed, exactly at what time, and more important, by which user,” explains Zitzke.

“The reporting structure we’ve designed is quite unique. Alert information immediately gets routed to predefined authorised individuals or groups. The tree-like report menu can provide standard Sage ERP Accpac, and on the fly customisable exception reports. To avoid so-called analysis paralysis, Audit Trails monitors events selectively and thus it avoids unnecessary tracing that is both verbose and resource intensive,” says Zitzke.

Audit Trails for Sage ERP Accpac is designed for Microsoft SQL Server database management systems for SMEs, corporate or enterprise organisations.

“The Audit Trails product is not restricted to trace changes on Sage ERP Accpac databases only. The Computer Faire is giving us the perfect platform to exhibit our new products, and being awarded ‘Best of what’s new’ status adds fuel to our development team’s fire and enthusiasm for shrink-wrapped custom-developed business solutions,” says Zitzke.
