If your business has access to meaningful reports, you are more equipped to understand performance and make adjustments where needed. Real-time information and better reports give you the power to make faster, more informed decisions. Small business accounting software just can’t deliver that type of visibility.
We get it. We know how difficult it can be to access the information you need to make those strategic business growth decisions. In today’s environment, maybe you’re working remotely and need instant access to the latest information on where your business stands.
These are some of the most common reporting automation challenges we’ve come across:
- Meeting regulations like SOX, SOC1, SOC2 and ISO
- Overall compliance reporting
- Manual reports are taking too much time
- Reports are sitting in Excel and quickly becoming outdated
- No access to vital reports like cash flow, customer receivables aging, opportunity pipeline, inventory valuation and sales analysis
- Lack of real-time data and inability to report across business areas
- Can’t confidently make data-driven decisions
