How to Eliminate the Financial Reporting Excel Dump

How to Eliminate the Financial Reporting Excel Dump

For companies with complex reporting needs like multi-company consolidations, nothing will compromise a financial close like spreadsheets.

For many that rely on Excel-based reporting processes, the close process involves the dreaded “financial reporting Excel dump,” where data is exported to Excel, leaving finance teams with the task of juggling massive tabs and spreadsheets, and manually consolidating the data.

The Excel dump is not only a tedious process that reoccurs every month, but it is also dangerous to the integrity of a company’s financial statements. Every manual touch point elevates the risk of errors – from data input to formula errors.

The risks associated with this type of Excel dump are well documented. As part of its series on Financial Reporting Best Practices, published this whitepaper sharing eight compelling reasons why CFOs are trading in spreadsheets for more modern, cloud-based solutions like FYIsoft’s.
