Plano, TX (PRWEB) July 12, 2010
With the introduction of DataRECONCILER,™ EMA Softech has declared an end to the days when accountants and other professionals sit hunched over their computers for hours or days trying to reconcile mountains of data.
DataRECONCILER is a powerful online hosted application, offered as a subscription service that quickly compares and reconciles any two large sets of data. This software-as-a-service (SaaS) application supports uploading of data in Microsoft Excel™ (.xls) and Comma Separated Value (.csv) file formats -- common export formats for most databases and accounting systems.
DataRECONCILER will benefit accountants, auditors, financial professionals, IT staff, marketing or sales people, statisticians, purchasing staff, or anyone who needs to compare multiple sources of data or versions of similar data to identify differences between them.
“You can use DataRECONCILER for practically any kind of reconciliation,” said Charles Gabriel, CEO of EMA Softech. “You can compare any two sets of numbers and/or text. For example, compare trial balances from different periods; payroll data from different months; two versions of budget files for their differences, or even two different contact lists.”
DataRECONCILER users can, for example:
- Reconcile external records to internal records, such as bank statements to cash book transactions, or determine which checks and deposits are still outstanding;
- Reconcile two accounts that represent same information, such as inter-company accounts or branch office control accounts;
- Merge data from an older system to a newer system and identify duplicates;
- Compare data between two different systems, such as a CRM and an order entry system, or Microsoft Outlook™ and Lotus Notes;™
- Compare an earlier set of accounting data to a newer set of data, like closing balances to opening balances;
- Compare vendor shipping records to internal receiving logs;
- Identify and flag large variations in the market value of individual stocks or mutual funds in a portfolio, and
- Compare sales pipeline data from different periods for lost sales reporting.
As a “cloud computing” software application, DataRECONCILER requires no downloads or installation of software to a subscriber’s computer. The system implements updates and upgrades automatically, and a subscriber always has access to the latest version of the application at no additional effort or cost. A subscriber can access and use the application from anyplace that has Internet access -- office, home, or on the road -- via their computer’s web browser.
DataRECONCILER guarantees complete confidentiality and security of user data. Subscriber data uploads and downloads utilize 128 bit encryption (the same as online credit card purchases), and a secure SAS70 environment hosts the application.
For subscribers who do not want to store data remotely, the Standard Edition of DataRECONCILER deletes all uploaded source data files and comparison summary reports once they exit the application. Subscribers can, however, save and maintain the comparison parameters (reconciliation matching rules) of each comparison on the DataRECONCILER website for future use and the summary reports on their PC or local storage.
For subscribers who want to save time and avoid uploading previously used data in future comparisons, the DataRECONCILER application also offers data storage options. These options enable a subscriber to save uploaded data files—in addition to comparison parameters—on the host server. EMA Softech ensures the privacy and security of all uploaded, downloaded and stored data.
Annual subscription prices vary from the Standard Edition based on the amount of online storage a subscriber chooses for data retention. For more information on EMA Softech and DataRECONCILER, or to try it for free, visit http://www.EMAsoftech.com.
