Your business needs flexible, real-time, multi-dimensional operational reporting and while BI tools can be complex and costly to deploy, they do at least give you the audit control that enables you to centrally manage reporting.
Spreadsheets, however are totally flexible and have great pivot table functionality BUT finding any documentation on how certain spreadsheets are built. When the author of a very complex spreadsheet leaves the company, many businesses just keep on running the reports and keep their fingers firmly crossed that the numbers will be correct – not exactly the most resilient approach.
FastClose is an easy-to-use, fast-to-deploy operational reporting and enquiry solution built on spreadsheet platforms. FastClose enables you to quickly build powerful management reports directly against your ERP solution data at a fraction of the cost and complexity of a BI system.
