Ideagen’s audit management product garners fresh recognition


Ruddington-based software solutions provider Ideagen has been recognised as a Representative Vendor by Gartner for its Pentana audit management product.

Gartner, which delivers research to global technology organisations and business leaders, named Ideagen among the representative vendors in its recent “Market Guide for Audit Management Solutions”.

The report assesses the global and current audit software market, and Pentana was evaluated on criteria expected of a modern auditing application.

Colin Smith, Ideagen’s head of audit, said: “We firmly believe that Ideagen Pentana is the leading audit automation software on the market and we are delighted to be recognized by a well-respected organisation’s such as Gartner.

“Through Pentana, the software generates a “three lines of defence” environment that drives compliance and delivers real time insights into the organisation’s risk profile and the status of management and financial controls”.
