"CIMCON is an excellent product."

What do you like best?

The CIMCON products are very flexible to meet our companies needs. The various modules are simple to learn - not so simple to master! CIMCON personnel have been extremely knowledgeable and responsive!

What do you dislike?

The various modules are simple to learn - not so simple to master! And the technology seems to be more complicated than usual to implement and properly configure.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We evaluated several products and CIMCON outperformed - by far! The sales & support personnel are extremely knowledgeable and responsive. Much like Microsoft Excel, the more you learn about the CIMCON products, the more it will be able to do for you!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to review all aspects of files that impact our financials before our public filings! Like many companies, some of our files have many worksheets and many formulas. CIMCON products are going to allow us to review exceptions rather than spend time reviewing each cell or even each worksheet. This give management an even higher level of confidence prior to signing off!

"Good tool for EUC monitoring. "

What do you like best?

Technical support is quick and responsive. Once the users are properly trained, the tool becomes essential to them and helps with audit requirements a lot. The Excel add-in is a convenient way of using the tool's functions without having to log into the web page.

What do you dislike?

It is an extra layer to maintain and troubleshoot and some tasks like changing folder structure may become cumbersome. Requires an application expert if processes for monitored files are not thought through thoroughly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Plan directory structure, group and permission template structure well. Have an application subject matter expert to help other users and do not skip user training for anyone who would use the product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Cimcon SOX XL to help with meeting audit requirements for EUCs - the tool helps with formalizing change approval process for files which is granular, allows for detailed logging of changes, ability to revert them if needed and more.

What Governance, Risk & Compliance solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great Product!"

What do you like best?

The ease of use, plethora of available tools, and the overall functionality of this tool is what I view as the leading causes of why this very useful and beneficial to our organization.

What do you dislike?

While this tool is excellent overall, I would say the only item which could use improvement is the speed at which the tool sometimes works. On larger spreadsheets the tool has a tendency to lag when running items such as Workbook Analysis, but I know this is due to the large amounts of data being analyzed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great tool that should be considered if you work with large amounts of workbooks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Prudential has been using this tool enterprise-wide. While it was first purchased to provide a benefit to Finance Model Affirmations, other parties in Prudential are using it for daily workbook analysis and documentation purposes. This tool has saved many users hours of work when considering the automation CIMCON Software provides.

CIMCON offers a suite of features (some we do t use, but I would like to) to improve efficiencies, automate analysis, etc. The teams are extremely responsive to customer requests, and provide a excellent customer service.

What do you dislike?

We have yet to encounter something we dislike. CIMCON is extremely responsive to requests.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"The product is very user freiendly. "

What do you like best?

Currently, we use the XL-Risk and SOX-XL tools of the overall CIMCON tool. What I like about these tools is that we are able to use the XL-Risk to scan our network shares and generate inventory of all excel spreadsheets and databases used within the company and identify high, medium and low EUCs. This is properly formatted for ease of use.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing about this product that we dislike. The product does what we expect it to do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a very good product to work with and we will recommend it to other potential customers if need be.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to obtain the list of spreadsheets and databases used within the company.

"Great applications with fantastic support."

What do you like best?

I have worked closely with CIMCON for over 2 years now and they are always available when I need their advice or support. Even the times when I have been demanding with time due to project timescales, they have always delivered and provided a great service.

What do you dislike?

When I first started working with CIMCON my account manager was based in the USA. This was inconvenient as I was UK based. However, after a short while they opened an office in London which made it a lot easier to do business.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its a great company with great people working for it. All are friendly and helpful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use EUC Insight, which is our go to tool for managing EUDAs/EUC's. It allows us to stay in control of our End User Developed Applications as well as managing the risk associated with them. We use Discovery to locate our EUDAs, XL-Audit to validate them, and Change Management to control and monitor them. Having a global view of our EUDA population in EUC Insight allows us to affectively manage the risks while relieving the business of such tasks as reporting EUDA volumes and status on a monthly basis.

What do you like best?

That it gives excel based spreadsheets 21 CFR Part 11 based attributes.

What do you dislike?

That there's no way to prevent converted spreadsheets from being deleted, through Windows explorer, but this is an Excel based issue not a Cimcon based issue.

This software has helped us to ensure that any raw data we're recording into an excel spreadsheet can be made part 11 compliant by adding audit trails and electronic signature capabilities.
