Analytics and Insights


In today's highly competitive business environment, companies need more from controllership than accurate financial statements and reports. They need forward-looking, predictive, prescriptive insights that can help shape tomorrow's business strategy and improve day-to-day decision-making. Analytics and Insights improve organizational intelligence by uncovering and harnessing insights hidden in financial data. This includes risk sensing, continuous monitoring, cost/profitability analysis, visualization, mobile notifications, and external data.

  • Descriptive: What happened? Why did it happen?
  • Predictive: What is currently happening? What is the next best action?
  • Prescriptive: What is going to happen? What does simulation tell us?

Analytics and Insights address specific business issues around:

  • Limited visibility and transparency into data
  • Lack of insights into specific finance and accounting information
  • Lack of reporting or challenges with current reporting aggregation
