There are simple ways to analyze large volumes of data that come from paying invoices. Understanding the data is the first step towards knowing what to look for. The course will spend some time discussing the use of Audit Control Language (ACL) and how this tool and other tools like it (IDEA) are helpful in the analysis of Accounts Payable and Purchasing data.
