Stressed Out Accountant

Are You Missing Life Events Due to Stressful Financial Closes?

Accountants know that financial closes are stressful and time consuming as is, but with added pressure from the executive team, the financial close can become a hellish landscape.

The majority of accountants must trade in vacation or family time during financial close time, missing important life moments like family weddings, little leagues games, dance recitals, and more.

You don’t have to be one of them.

Excel Financial Reporting

Excel Is Still Relevant for Financial Reporting, But Should It Be?

Microsoft Excel has been a mainstay in the accounting world since it made its debut in the 1980s. Accountants and finance professionals are widely literate in Microsoft Excel for a variety of reasons–some of which being that it is a low cost, versatile, and commonplace solution.

Being part of the Microsoft Office package, which is prolifically available to businesses of all sizes, it makes sense that Excel has made such a splash. But has Excel earned its staying power? Is it still relevant in a complex accounting setting?

Excel brings a lot to the table, such as formulas, charts, and graphs, but it was never intended for the complex accounting needs of enterprise environments. In fact, Excel’s limitations have been a point of contention for many accountants and businesses, leading to frustration and hours of overtime to check and double-check manual work.

A limited and flawed solution

Excel can be a viable solution for small businesses, but medium-to-large businesses and businesses with multiple entities are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with Excel.

Some of Excel’s many limitations include:

  • Duplication: The same spreadsheet containing the same data exists in multiple inboxes and desktops. Which is the most current? Without a centralized hub, data integrity is jeopardized.
  • Errors: Have you ever had the experience of combing through every cell and every formula to find what’s broken? It can take hours or even days to locate and fix the mistake. Without solid checks and balances, this is one area Excel falls short.
  • Formatting: Like other Microsoft Office products, there are endless formatting possibilities–font type, font size, font color, highlighting… An individual may have a system of color-coding, but is that public knowledge? It is difficult to enforce a company-wide formatting policy designating how data should be formatted and presented on a product that offers endless options.

Fortunately, dedicated financial reporting and analytics software exists to fill in the gaps, ending the accountants’ dependence on a solution that was never intended to satisfy the complex needs multi-entity businesses face today.

FYIsoft provides finance and analytic tools for your needs

FYIsoft is committed to delivering the best available cloud financial reporting software, specifically designed to integrate with your GL system and dramatically improve reporting processes, even in the most complex financial environments.

FYIsoft solutions work to improve the length and speed of your financial close, make report generation and distribution easier than ever before, enhance data integrity, provide cloud-based, 24/7 mobile access, and most importantly, improve your bottom line with ROI within weeks.

You don’t need to rely on Excel any longer. Request a demo today and learn how FYIsoft can help.
