Just a couple months ago, we had a project that took our accounting and internal audit team about 400 hours worth of time. I was able to automate the process and ended up saving 2 weeks on the project.
Aaron Boor, CISA, IT Audit & Project Automation Manager
If you do those 450 processes manually it could take someone 4-8 hours who knows IDEA, as opposed to automating the entire process and having it done in 15 minutes.

In the past they were only able to test approximately 20% with sampling across the board, due to lack of resources, now they can do 100% testing based on exception reports that we created using IDEA.
Alex Muina, CRISC, CISA, GNSA, Asst Director
We use IDEA on almost every audit engagement, we use it from sampling to journal entry testing, to just digging deeper into things we couldn't have before...
Amy Manthey, CCPA.CITP, CISA, Sr Manager & Leah Justison, CPA, Sr Accountant
IDEA has helped be more efficient with our time. Most of our clients are the smaller businesses that don't have huge budgets to spend on investigations or audits, and they want us to use our time efficiently.

I would recommend IDEA to any and everyone, particularly on the academic level, to get students interested in it now. When they get in the workforce they're going to have to know how to use these tools, so the first tool I would recommend is IDEA.

Data analysis is very powerful in saving time in financial statement audits and allowing us to spend more time focusing on other key areas. It makes us smarter and more efficient.
Mark Mayberry, CPA, CISA, CIDA, Director, BDO USA
We use CaseWare IDEA on all of our large audit engagements because it provides us with a comfort level that we have done a quality audit. We have helped the client to uncover many duplicate payments and highlight other issues within their systems. Our investment in IDEA has and will continue to yield high returns for us and our clients.
