At Convergence earlier this year, we learned that many customers aren’t using the report scheduling feature in Management Report to run daily or weekly reports. After talking with these customers, two themes came up:
- Customers didn’t know Management Reporter had Report Scheduling
- Customers were using Management Reporter only for traditional financial statements and not for other day to day financial reporting
This blog will address both of these themes.
Report Scheduling eliminates repetitive tasks of generating reports
Let’s address the easier one first. Report scheduling offers a flexible and secure mechanism for automating the publishing of your financial reports from within Management Reporter. Report schedules are simple to setup and require little maintenance. In your business, report scheduling can be used to eliminate the repetitive task of generating the same reports every day or during your month end process. To learn more, check out this video.
Management Reporter helps you create reports to manage the day to day operations of your business
Management Reporter is the best tool offered to help you create your financial statements, but it’s also a great solution for creating a variety of other reports based upon data in your General Ledger. With the flexibility of the dimensional capabilities in Management Reporter, many reports are possible that will help you and others in your company to better manage your business.
Here are links to just some of the many report examples we’ve covered in this blog over the last few years:
- “Flipped” income statement that can help you easily compare revenue and expenses by department (or another dimension you track.
- Expense snapshot where expense accounts are set up in the reporting tree and two other dimensions are used in the rows and columns
- Financial matrix showing one GL dimension on the X axis and another financial dimension on the Y axis, such as geography in the report rows and departments in the report columns
- Snapshot reports that shows accounts in the reporting tree and departments in the row definition
- Weekly revenue analysis showing columns of weekly data with revenue in the report rows
