Access to information is the key to creating an equitable and progressive society. Something similar can be said about it in the business world. We all know that accessing the right data or information exactly when it’s needed lets organizations make real-time decisions, and drives growth and strategy. That said, tracking the right information means sifting through a LOT of unnecessary noise, and then the data needs to be organized in such a way that it drives performance and makes sense to you and your staff. This is where having easy-to-build, unique, drillable reports and dashboards can make all the difference. A lot of solutions talk about dashboards though, so how does Sage Intacct provide something that is better than what others claim to offer?
How exactly does Sage Intacct provide better information accessibility? Well, one way is through built-in, flexible multi-dimensions. In simple terms, a dimension is a tool to classify information so it can be organized, sorted, labeled, and tagged logically. With dimensions, you’re better equipped to slice and dice the data and compile reports on valuable insights specific to your area. For a business that has different service programmes, multiple product lines, entities, and customers, this is the ultimate game-changer. Streamlined charts of accounts, improved real-time reporting on financial data, and increased operational efficiency are just some of the ways dimensions give you a new way to drive business performance.
44% of organizations say their ERP software is inflexible and are exploring options for extending it with a new system. For example, with other inflexible ERP systems, your chart of accounts is usually hard coded into the software. This makes organizing your financial transactions incredibly complicated and unmanageable, especially as your business evolves and grows. Organizational agility is essential, especially after what we saw in early 2020. Sage Intacct with adaptable dimensions because they are not hard coded. You can feel better knowing that as your business changes, your system’s accounting processes can change too.
