NARRATIVE PERFORMANCE REPORTING

Disclosure management software is no longer just regulatory reporting. Other lines of business use this software daily.

Narrative performance reporting, internal reporting, management reporting – regardless of what your company calls it, the periodic consolidation of departmental results is a painful process for anyone. Each period, it’s a tedious, redundant routine of using last period’s now-outdated template, pulling in the new numbers and attempting to fill in the blanks with meaningful narrative. This painful process is often laden with inefficiencies and errors. Businesses the world over are turning to collaborative, single-data-source reporting engines to handle narrative performance reporting. After all, your business needs faster access to performance reporting in order to keep pace with competitive markets.
