How do you achieve reporting flexibility in an ever changing world?

Receiving more and more requests for information with responses needed ASAP? Finding your standard suites of fixed reports no longer enough? Scrambling around trying to source additional data and worried about its reliability? If these are common occurrence in your finance function, then you’ve come to the right place.

As the world changes rapidly, the complexity of statutory requirements increases, the demands companies are placing on their finance function for internal and external reporting grows with it. Finance teams experience a never-ending array of questions from external stakeholders such as regulators, clients, customers, investors and analysts plus all parts of the business itself – be it C-Suite executives, operations, pricing, work winning and more.

Comparative reporting and time series views

LucaNet’s multidimensional database provides fast interactive reporting and analysis with dynamic comparative analysis between the data levels of actual, budgets and forecasts.

It’s not just data levels, any two dimensions elements can be compared at a single member level or by hierarchy – be it time periods, entities, cost centres, consolidation scenarios, currencies.

Additionally, use the calendar drop-down to select any number of years analysed by year, quarter or even month – see Fig 1. Alternatively, drill down to months using single-clicks on the face of the view.

You can even compare dimensional combinations against each other e.g. Actual data for 2018 vs Budget 2019, all at the click of a button and without using Excel – see Fig 2
