ACES Web Audit Technology

The technology is very well suited for QC audits. It is also flexible enough to create audits for other purposes within the mortgage industry.

Cap IQ is well suited for analyzing security pricing and valuation, tracking stock performance over time, looking up comparable transactions, and analyzing valuations on an industry basis. The service is also well suited for charting and data analysis purposes.

  • Data aggregation and charting. We consistently use Capital IQ's data collection abilities for comparing multiple indices and/or individual publicly traded securities.
  • Excel integration. Cap IQ's Excel plug-in is extremely useful for performing valuation analyses, and allows one to easily update key market metrics for ongoing use.
  • Transaction monitoring. Cap IQ maintains a reliable and continuously updated store of M&A transactions that one can reference for the purpose of analyzing deal activity in a particular industry subsector.

Cons

  • Reporting is through Business Objects, which requires someone proficient in that technology. If ACES could provide more assistance in this area it would wonderful.
  • A more detailed user guide. Not all processes are explained well.
  • Provide the ability to view updates in a PDF format so that we can review them at one time instead of one item at a time.

  • User Interface. While Cap IQ is generally user friendly, the software can be unwieldy on certain internet browsers, and methods for compiling specific market data can be challenging at times (as it relates to charting).
  • Debt Market Data. Cap IQ's capabilities on reporting bankruptcies and statistics related to bankruptcies could use some refining, particularly for investors who frequently look at distressed debt or special situations investments.

Alternatives Considered

I believe ACES has a better platform for the audits that we conduct. It allows us to make changes and add questionnaires as they are needed.

While Bloomberg has a much more comprehensive view of the markets and typically has more up-to-date information in terms of overall news, Cap IQ is easier to integrate into existing financial models, and the formula builder included with the Excel plugin makes it easy to pull relevant financial data as well as update it based on a specific time frame.
