And just as fast as it came, 2018 is ending. For many finance departments, it is a time to take a step back and reflect on the bottlenecks of the entire budgeting and reporting process.
Was this year´s close process manual, laborious, time-consuming, and error-prone? If you were frustrated by how you budgeted, planned, forecasted, reported or even consolidated then perhaps adapting an innovative approach for 2019 is not such a bad idea.
When the finance analysts´ time is wasted on gathering data, cross-checking figures and in fixing problems that plague voluminous spreadsheets, their ability to budget, forecast, and report with a high degree of accuracy and greater quality is compromised. To add to that, very little analysis happens because there just isn´t enough time to do everything.
2019 gives you a new opportunity to rid yourself and the entire finance team of the frustrations brought about by your use of Excel spreadsheets. 2019 is a time to assess your current process or even your current software to check if it is still delivering what you ought to achieve and if it will still carry your organization to where you want to be in the long-term.
