BayernLB has been an IDL client for many years. After working with IDL Konsis and banking solution IDL Finrep, the finance department introduced IDL Publisher to automate annual report creation. The scope of the tool was significantly extended as part of the development partnership with IDL. The Accounting and Reporting Department of BayernLB now creates and publishes its comprehensive notes and attachment information with IDL Publisher and plans to use this to generate the whole annual report in the future. All financial data required for the notes information is now directly loaded from IDL Konsis via an interface. The direct data flows and discontinuation of Excel solutions mean that the finance department significant reduces the effort that goes into documentation and can access extremely reliable data. Automatic controls guarantee that data quality remains consistently high. When the annual financial statement is created, updated figures can easily be imported from IDL Konsis into the layout version of the notes and attachments with just one click so that the current work version has reliable data at all times.
