AX Dashboard for ACL AuditExchange(TM) (AX) provides dashboarding capabilities that enable auditors to summarize and visualize results in a meaningful way and easily share those results across the organization. It is the newest component of AX, a centralized server-based solution that enables audit and compliance professionals to take their analytic insights to a new level.

“AX Dashboard is visually powerful and allows for effective and timely sharing of audit insights with the highest levels of management,” said George Gitson, Audit Analytics Manager at The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company. Teams can review, document and track results all within a centralized and secure environment.

“Visualizing analytic results into meaningful, easy-to-digest views for management and key stakeholders is traditionally challenging and time-consuming,” said John Verver, Vice President of Product Strategy & Alliances at ACL Services. “AX Dashboard does the heavy lifting, turning rows and columns into visually impactful views. This addition to ACL AuditExchange will transform how management consumes and is able to act upon the valuable data analysis findings from the internal audit function.”

AX Dashboard allows users to:

  • Visualize results
    Graph results to identify trends and patterns. AX Dashboard lets users select and change visualizations effortlessly. From sophisticated heat maps to line charts or combination graphs, meaningful visualization is clear and easy to create using the 40+ different chart types.
  • Manage exceptions
    Real-time alerts let management know when critical thresholds are hit so they can take action when required. Reports including graphics can be pushed automatically through email.
  • Interact with the data
    Increase the value of the information the team brings to the table through interactive and flexible charts. Provide context to visualized results through Drill-Downs, Time- Sliders, Tooltips and Series Selection – taking analytic results to a whole new level.
  • Monitor and share key metrics
    Monitor KPIs, summaries and trends of data analysis done in fieldwork.

AX Dashboard is a web-based platform equipped with enterprise-level security. Security can be specified so that sensitive information is protected.
