Incisive, a developer of enterprise-class spreadsheet analysis
and management solutions, today announced that its Xcellerator solution
has been named a 2013 Top New Product in the Spreadsheet Tools category
by Accounting Today Magazine. Xcellerator was noted for its ability to
enhance the experience of using spreadsheets, ensure data is error-free
and help reduce fraud.
“Every year, it seems products for the accounting profession are getting
better, and we’re privileged to be on the front lines of seeing what’s
coming and, more important, where technology is moving,” said Seth
Fineberg, Technology Editor for Accounting Today. “This year’s list,

Xcellerator helps users resolve errors and risks, and gain confidence

investigative capabilities to comprehensively analyze spreadsheets.
Developed for all spreadsheet users, Xcellerator significantly reduces
material errors and possible fraud as well as the hours associated with
detailed spreadsheet review.

spreadsheet risk by pointing out errors in a straight-forward manner
that is both revealing and instructive for users and management alike.”
