Overview

Today’s educational institutions do far more than educate students in a classroom. They provide a broad range of services such as meals, lodging, medical care, retail and security-related services. By extending their services beyond education, K-12, colleges and universities face a growing number of financial, operational and regulatory risks that stem from analyzing data in silos and assessing risks only every few months. 

CaseWare™ Analytics is able to analyse multiple data sources holistically, regardless of the volume or variety. From this consolidated outlook of the data, CaseWare Analytics is able to provide an independent point of observation over the institution’s operations so as to discover any occurrences that are inconsistent with internal or external rules and regulations. Also, with CaseWare Analytics you can employ automated and repeatable analytics for immediate fraud detection plus manage and track anomalies from initial detection to resolution.
