Lyquidity Updates Spreadsheet Compliance and Control Tool -- ComplyXL

Version 1.5 tracks cell changes and ensures tighter controls without losing Excel's usability and flexibility

New York, December 6, 2006 -- Lyquidity Solutions today announced the availability of its latest release, ComplyXL 1.5. ComplyXL is a key component for business-critical information because it ensures a logical solution to the need to track cell changes and ensuring tighter controls without losing Excel's usability and flexibility.

ComplyXL provides change tracking down to the cell level, reducing spreadsheet risk from unintended changes. Because cell changes to cell values, formulas, and formats can be reviewed, ComplyXL ensures that stringent regulatory and compliance issues such as Sarbanes-Oxley are met without affecting business productivity. Packaged as a standalone application, an add-in to Excel, and as a Web server, ComplyXL is able to provide all organizations with the ability to monitor every spreadsheet, regardless of size.

With version 1.5 Lyquidity has responded to user requests, particularly from the banking and audit sectors, to allow users the ability to focus on any type of change; ComplyXL provides a comprehensive range of filtering options. Change-type filtering allows the user to select which differences and changes to highlight, such as macro changes, formula changes, locked or unlocked cells, blank or locked cells, among others. The user is able to see a graphical overview of changes to a worksheet and zoom into their key information, dramatically speeding up the time to highlight critical spreadsheet changes.

Lyquidity has shown its commitment to providing cost effective solutions for organizations facing ever-tightening compliance issues. “Compliance is only one part of the story. We have found that making it easy for users to see changes is key, so in 1.5 we have provided a graphical overview of worksheet changes,” said Sandy Marshall, product manager for ComplyXL.

ComplyXL v1.5 is shipping today and is available to customers to download. Trial downloads of the software are available from our Web site:
