Understanding your organization’s past performance is essential to effective decision-making, however the reporting capabilities of many ERP and GL systems struggle to satisfy the basic needs of today’s managers. We help organizations improve their reporting and analytics by implementing technologies that simplify data management and improve access to these core data sources. From integration with a wide variety of popular ERP systems like SAP, Oracle, and JDE; to key aspects on every analytics application:

Consolidations & External Reporting
Despite ever-mounting regulatory and investor scrutiny, many organizations continue to use spreadsheets and email to track, record, and report financial activities that span multiple entities or otherwise fall outside the General Ledger structure. Analytics and consolidation solutions help companies of all sizes expedite closing cycles, establish audit trails, reduce the risk of error and restatement, and automate consolidating and closing entries and calculations. Our team will help you implement the right mix of technology and business processes that take the stress out of closing.
