Does your ERP system give you the reports you need? Is it automated?
Often the finance department has access to the information they need, but it has to be exported and compiled manually. This wastes time. And the information is quickly outdated and the report needs to be compiled again.

Kerri, the Financial Operations Manager at the same distribution/manufacturing company said, “The nice thing about reporting is that the possibilities are endless, I don’t think most people take advantage of that. We throw everything but the kitchen sink at CAL when it comes to reporting and our account manager is able to give us what we ask for.
