CaseWare IDEA

One example of specific scenario in [CaseWare] IDEA is the ability to run samples separately and then based off of the results, compare and contrast the values recorded and easily discern if there are any variables or discrepancies within the data itself. Also, we can test journal entries with certain parameters to check the audit for any issues that may arise pertaining to the criteria. By testing, we are able to make sure the data is accurate and sufficient.

Pros

CaseWare IDEA

  • Easy to understand and easy to use.
  • Can use on large quantities of data and quickly analyze them.
  • Uses logic that can be followed if one is an auditor. I, for example, could understand the logic in a number of samples, i.e how the number of samples thrown changes when risk changes from low to moderate in proportion taking in consideration the materiality.
  • Other audit firms are using 2 software for the process that IDEA alone can do. So IDEA has a definite advantage here.
  • Customizable by the company.

I would rate it a 9 because I never really needed support on this but if I did, there was the necessary support given promptly.

Alternatives Considered

CaseWare IDEA

I have used Microstart and would definitely vote for IDEA because IDEA combines what Microstart does with the help of one/more softwares. Where Microstart just gives a number of samples, IDEA selects the number of samples based on materiality, risk, and other factors. It selects those samples from the population leaving out line items that are invalid/ zero. I would prefer using IDEA any day.
