This case study of Norma is based on a June 2017 survey of Global Software, Inc. customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“Atlas quickly feeds data to Excel, allowing an almost instant view or snapshot of inventory vs demand. Manual extraction of said data would make it so time-consuming that checking more than one or two products at a time would be pointless. This applies not only to short-range planning, where reporting must be as quick as possible to make decision processes efficient but also to mid- and long-range planning, where saved time can be used for more thorough analysis.”

Experienced the following reporting pain points prior to implementing Atlas:

  • Rekeying data from Microsoft Dynamics into spreadsheets
  • Manual, multi-step reporting processes
  • Lack of access to real-time information
  • Creating reports in a timely manner
  • Lack of data accuracy and/or validity

Used Atlas for reporting beyond Financials/GL in the following areas:

  • Manufacturing
  • Inventory

Chose Atlas over the following tool:

  • An Excel Add-in

Experienced the following benefits as a result of Atlas:

  • The removal of disparate static excel sheets
  • Improved data accuracy
  • Improved access to live data to make strategic decisions

Streamlined the following processes by using Atlas:

  • Extracting data from Dynamics / relational database
  • Reporting outside the GL, such as Inventory, Manufacturing, Sales, Purchasing, Projects, etc.

Gained the ability to do the following by using Atlas:

  • Direct initiatives based on findings in reports
  • Centralize reporting practices
  • Increase the ability to complete tactical, complex analysis
  • Increase time savings
