Data used by valuers and investors can differ by up to 40%, says Dean Grossmith, a director of software firm Affinity. This should be critical to other innovations such as property derivatives and statements in annual accounts about relative performance compared with indices. 'It has the feel of a corporate governance disaster waiting to happen,' he says. 'This manually intensive, high data volume, repetitive activity urgently requires automation and it should be a matter of serious concern for those responsible for business operations that they know the level of their organisation's exposure and are taking steps to improve this situation.'

Because manual changes are not recorded, valuers are struggling to produce 'audit trails' recording exactly what they have changed and when, says Grossmith.
