WHY SWITCH FROM ACL

If your organization uses ACL, Arbutus is uniquely positioned to not only minimize any transition concerns and risks but, also re-invigorate the use and value you receive from audit analytics.

LESS RISK TO SWITCH. GREATER BENEFITS.

Anytime an organization considers alternatives to their incumbent solutions, a number of common concerns are legitimately raised like incremental costs, new training and transition challenges for staff, loss of investment and experience in existing technology, uncertainty about the benefits of switching, and uncertainly about a different vendor. At Arbutus, we understand those concerns, and our solutions are uniquely positioned to respond to your audit analytics needs.

FAMILIAR INTERFACE & COMMAND LANGUAGE

This means your existing investments in staff training and experience will help, not hinder, your transition to Arbutus.

Arbutus’ technology ships out of the box with everything you need. There is no requirement to upgrade to other expensive and complex offerings.

SPEED

SPEED

As benchmark results show, Arbutus’ technology can be dramatically faster than the competition. While a typical command is 20% faster, some very common operations like importing, exporting, time and date, and fuzzy comparison range from two to hundreds of times faster. Faster performance gives you more time to produce more and better quality results. See the time benchmarks
