Houston – Dec. 1, 2011 – Audimation Services, Inc. today announced the addition of Katrina Kiselinchev, MBA, CPA, CFE, CFF, CIA, President of Inclusivitie L.L.C. to the Integration Partnership Program to assist customers in using IDEA® – Data Analysis Software efficiently to plan and conduct audits and fraud investigations.
As an Integration Partner, Kiselinchev will assist IDEA users in applying data analysis techniques to areas such as payroll, accounts payable, per diem and travel expenses to identify fraud. Her fraud investigation and audit experience in this area has resulted in finding more than $1 million in less than a year for a client, which included an investigation by the Secret Service.
Kiselinchev has experience in automating tasks to enable continuous monitoring including Oracle data extractions, integrating SmartAnalyzer using macros and scripts to automate tests, creating customized exclusions to reduce false exceptions. Using SmartAnalyzer, Kiselinchev was able to reduce exceptions from more than 1,000 to approximately 100 across all tests within the quarter. She will also work with clients on external audit alignment and reliance on quarterly tests to optimize audit coverage and assurance, which results in decreased external audit fees.
“As we expand the Integration Partnership Program, we seek partners with deep experience in helping our customers use technology to its fullest extent,” said Carolyn Newman, president, Audimation Services. “Katrina has effectively used IDEA and SmartAnalyzer in innovative ways to help her clients increase their productivity, find fraud, automate manual tasks and add more value to their organizations. She will be a valuable addition to our Integration Partnership, which continues to grow.”
Kiselinchev is available to assist accountants, auditors and financial professionals in using IDEA to identify process improvement opportunities, compliance gaps, and fraud risks and occurrences. She has extensive experience in annual audit plan development, implementation and integration of IDEA as a continuous monitoring technology.
“During my career, I’ve worked with a variety of companies to help them identify fraud using IDEA and handle subsequent fraud investigations with external parties,” said Kiselinchev. “IDEA is a powerful tool that can be used in infinite ways to achieve greater efficiency, root out fraud and simplify commonly-used tasks. I look forward to sharing my experience with fellow IDEA users as an Integration Partner.”
Integration Partners are selected based on specific criteria including technical expertise, product knowledge, and experience providing consulting and customization services.
