Houston – May 3, 2011 – Audimation Services, Inc. and The Association of College and University Auditors (ACUA) today announced the renewal of their strategic partnership to provide members with preferred pricing on IDEA® – Data Analysis Software, training and other resources.
Through partnership, Audimation Services will assist ACUA members with meeting their goals to incorporate innovations in their use of data analysis to identify best practices and emerging issues. As part of the agreement, ACUA has endorsed IDEA as the organization's data analysis technology partner, which entitles Audimation Services to greater visibility at ACUA-hosted events and increased outreach to members.
"With more budget cuts on the horizon for higher education, colleges and universities are particularly vulnerable to fraud schemes and scams," said Carolyn Newman, President, Audimation Services. "ACUA is the leading resource for higher education auditors, and we are fully committed to helping its members win the war against fraud by arming them with industry standard data analysis technology and best practices."
As part of the agreement, Audimation Services offers ACUA members discounts on IDEA, related components, training and learning events. Audimation Services plans to leverage ACUA's newly-designed Web site to offer members greater access to resources such as an interactive question and answer forum, research, training events and other valuable content. Audimation Services will also increase its communication with ACUA members by hosting live Webcasts, delivering presentations, participating in ACUA conferences, distributing special offers and publishing educational articles in College and University Auditor. As a strategic partner, Audimation Services will have the opportunity to become an Educational Speaker during the ACUA Annual Conference.
"Audimation Services has been a wonderful partner to ACUA, and a partner as well to ACUA members who are IDEA users," said Mary Barnett, ACUA President. "Their product is second to none, and their commitment to customer service is nothing short of legendary. What really stands out to me, though, is how thoroughly they understand ACUA: Our business, our institutions, and our approach to what we do. Thank you, Audimation Services, for another wonderful year together, and we look forward to many more!"
