Challenge: Did you know that…

  • It is an exciting time to be in finance, finance organizations are seeing a shift in their role. For example, 3 out of 4 finance leaders have seen their strategic influence increase over the last three years (Accenture). This is both an opportunity and a challenge.

In speaking with other companies like yours, we see that many finance teams are still struggling with tactical FP&A, reporting, and analysis process, and don’t have the time to focus on the analysis that their increasingly being asked to do.

For example:

  • Many core finance and accounting processes are manual, 75% of the effort in planning, reporting, analysis, and consolidation is wasted rekeying and manually rolling up data (Source: Ventana).
  • Worse 90% of spreadsheets contain data and formula errors, while 90% of users are convinced they are error free – creating substantial material risk as the pace of business accelerates (Source ACCA).
  • In fact 64% of finance organizations report that their annual plans are out of date by the beginning of the fiscal year (Source: Beyond Budgeting Round Table).
