The Customer’s Pain Point – An Overview
In organizations of all sizes — midmarket or multinational — financial departments now face greater scrutiny from external regulators and internal stakeholders. This in turn means far more reporting requirements than ever before.
Did you know that 74% of financial managers are using spreadsheets as their primary vehicle to generate reports? This means a large percentage of your midmarket customers are creating their lengthy reports or presentations manually. These high-value reports are prone to human error, outdated information and have little or no version control.
This brings us to the key problems associated with a manual reporting process.
Generating a recurring, multi-author report or presentation is a major undertaking with no version control and being prone to human errors
Midmarket departments are relatively small and person dependent and are at a risk if key personnel leave unexpectedly or cannot continue to work
Information / numbers / data on spreadsheets, or on desktops may need to be recreated, making it a cumbersome and time consuming process
Most financial managers have recently finalized their high-value reports and have first-hand experience of these pain points highlighted.
