The modern Finance function is expected to add value by providing business insight, supported by high quality reports and powerful analytics. Our Reporting solution makes it easy to meet the demands of increasing data volumes, additional sources and faster turnaround times.
Firstly, we focus on making it easy to automate the iterative collation and mapping of data into a corporate reporting database. Then we provide simple tools for managing currency, aggregation, rollups and KPI calculations. Finally, our easy to use report writer leverages all the capability of Excel to produce highly formatted reports, charts and dashboards providing internal and external users with the quality they demand.
