How Easily Can You Access Financial and Operational Data to Improve Business Performance?
Getting A Hold of Cost Accounting Data Requires Specialist
Accessing data required to help reduce scrap, identify where waste occurs, evaluate supplier costs, etc., requires specialized knowledge of your ERP data structures, which makes you dependent on IT.
Reporting on Changes Related to the Bill of Materials (BOM) and Routings is Complex
Tracking standard costs and variance costs related to the BOM as work orders move through the production process from raw material to work in progress and then on to finished goods is challenging.
Existing Reporting Tools Don’t Meet Your Business Users’
Your ERP system is complex, and its native reporting tools are not flexible enough to report over fast-changing data that span multiple modules and even multiple systems. BI tools lack ERPsmarts, so creating new reports and dashboards takes too long and requires specialist skills.
