Products[edit]

ACL data analytics is a data extraction and analysis software used for fraud detection & prevention, and risk management. By sampling large data sets, ACL data analysis software is used to find irregularities or patterns in transactions that could indicate control weaknesses or fraud.

ACL GRC is a cloud-based audit workflow, risk management, and compliance management software solution.

In 2011, ACL expanded into the electronic work papers market with the acquisition of Workpapers.com.[6] The acquisition signaled the shift by the company towards the SaaS model.[7]

In May 2013, ACL launched ACL GRC, a cloud-based risk assessment, project and results management solution that replaced ACL Workpapers.[8] The product is available in French, Spanish, Portuguese, and German, and the software is hosted from data centers across North America, the European Union, or Asia.
