Data Connections

  • Marry qualitative narrative analysis with enterprise data. Combine financial and operational data from a variety of sources with in-depth narrative analysis for internal and external reporting.
  • Link report data directly to enterprise data sources. Create dynamic reports that update automatically when the numbers change in underlying data sources—ensuring a single, consistent version of the truth.

Permissions, Controls & Collaboration

  • Configure and enforce intelligent processes. Drive process consistency and automate many manual processes in reporting and in the financial close.
  • Enable controlled collaboration. Rely on a single, secure, enterprise-scalable solution for recurring, multi-author reports and presentations. Let multiple users view and edit reports simultaneously without causing versioning problems.
  • Employ workflow and task management capabilities. Gain insight into critical performance management and reporting processes through dashboards and alerts.
  • Optimize controls and auditability. Standardize review and validation procedures and ensure they are performed at each level of the organization—from department to business entity to corporate headquarters.

Security & Integration

  • Enhance security over sensitive data and reports. Power a comprehensive set of internal security features with secure, user-based logins to prevent data leaks and insider trading.
  • Deploy on cloud. Speed time to value and lower adoption costs with web-based console hosting and consulting services.

Filing Formatting & Output

  • Leverage the intuitive user interface of Microsoft Office. Take advantage of staff expertise with the calculation capabilities of Microsoft Excel and formatting in Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint, while utilizing the additional functionality and capabilities of an enterprise solution.
  • Create documents with integrated tagging. Employ high volume tagging to comply with industry-specific XBRL requirements such as Basel III for banking and Solvency II for insurance.
