The beauty of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is its ability to provide a central view of your organization’s financial, operational, and business data. It automates repeatable tasks, streamlines your ability to create reports and analyze data, and sheds clarity on sales, marketing, human resources, supply chain management, and even manufacturing.

From a financial and operational reporting perspective, that beauty comes at a price, challenging finance and accounting teams to meet the increasing demand for recurring operational reports. They struggle with:

  • Slow processes with long lead times due to a lack of pre-built financial content and heavy reliance on IT teams to create and modify reports.
  • Overly complex ERP report writers and BI tools, requiring deep technical skills to understand and work with the data.
  • Difficult-to-understand reports based on tabular views that offer little to no ability to dig into and explore the data.

Today’s fast-paced finance and accounting teams can’t afford to rely on manual processes or traditional business intelligence (BI) tools that slow them down. That’s where Angles from insightsoftware comes in, helping mid-sized finance and accounting teams optimize their ERP reporting processes and gain fast, accurate analytics. See why Angles is the new financial reporting solution your teams and business users are going to love.
