TIME TO GET A 360° ON YOUR FINANCES?

As CFO, Business Controller or Head of Business Control, your role and that of your department has evolved in recent years from being scorekeepers to becoming important strategic advisors. In many ways, the finance department is now the compass of the business and those who make the smartest decisions the fastest are the winners. Unfortunately, many of the ERP systems used by finance departments today are not keeping up with the changes. For example, ERP reporting and analysis tools are static and only deliver in pre-determined formats. You have to switch between different databases and currencies from multiple offices and multiple systems, all of which takes time and manual labour. And because every step in the process is contingent on other steps, delays are common. It can days or weeks to run reports.

Enter Climber’s complete, Qlik-based, solution for the finance department – giving you deeper insight into your business data, greater confidence in your business decisions and a 360° overview of your finances.

Signs that your finance department needs a new BI solution

Being part of the finance department involves providing answers to all aspects of the business, with specific challenges related to different sides of accounting. You probably get lots of “What if?” questions from around the company that take up most of your day. If your experiencing this and any of the following challenges in your business, then your current ERP system may be underperforming and it’s time to make a change.

Having difficulty creating the reports you want? 

On the management accounting side, you need to answer questions like, “What are our top selling products?” and “What affects our margins – and profitability?” An ERP system is not adapted for detailed analysis and reporting. To do that kind of reporting you probably need to access multiple systems, export to excel and manually put together the report. The process is laborious and very time-consuming and when you get the answers they are probably old news already.

Stuck with static reports in a pre-determined format? 

On the financial accounting side, you need to show annual turnover, costs per office or department, and what you billed such and such a client last year. Traditional ERP systems only produce static reports in locked time-frames. You can’t drill down and can’t breakdown the information on a customer level or pick a specific time frame. What you need is a BI system that tells you exactly what you need to know and when you need to know it.

From zero to hero!
