Software for efficient group controlling
Modern investment management is being shaped by increasingly complex corporate structures and the constant progression of decentralization and internationalization. A tremendous amount of effort is required when the financial data pertaining to investments is scattered across a wide variety of source systems and countless Excel spreadsheets. Charts of accounts, meanwhile, are typically not harmonized, and new accounts have to be added by hand. This results in reporting and analysis that are both resource-intensive and prone to inaccuracies.
To bring order to data this complex, companies are in more need than ever of an instrument suitable for implementing centralized and efficient group controlling.
