Financial Performance Management

Drive business goals with consolidated, flexible, and accurate financials.

Few business areas have a tighter connection to the spreadsheet than finance.  As a consequence, many finance professionals find themselves wrestling with highly manual budgeting, planning, and forecasting processes.  Sometimes it feels like the only way quarterly numbers get produced is through sheer force of will.


How efficient is your corporate reporting process?



Shorten Cycle Times and Engage Business Users 

Stop wrestling with static spreadsheets and fixing broken calculations and formulas. Centralize budgets, actuals, plans, forecasts, calculations, and cell notes to ensure integrity—from summary to detail.

Create more time for finance to review the “why” behind numbers to deliver deeper insights to the business.


“While 85% of CFOs claim to have direct access to the data they need, many spend too much time gathering data, confirming its accuracy and consistency, and formatting reports.”
