Does the accounting department routinely show up asking all manner of questions regarding the production process? The accounting minions – from accounts receivable to the cost accountants always seem to be coming to get more details on a specific number that they have come across. Sometimes you wonder how they even found that number and why it is such an issue for them anyway.
It is common to find manufacturers running a separate accounting software from their ERP system. In fact, it is very common to find your accounting department exporting reports and dropping the information into spreadsheets to be analyzed. They spend hours sorting the numbers and creating elaborate spreadsheets in order to see the actual cost of a project, and determine whether or not it was profitable.
So, while they show up at the most unfortunate times, and typically ask questions that you really don’t have an answer to, it is with purpose.
Without the visibility of Syteline ERP software, the accounting department is left to put together a puzzle on a monthly basis. It might as well be called Franken-reporting. They stitch together all the pieces (purchases, man hours, materials, etc.) to create a snapshot of income, expense, and profitability. It is usually ugly, and requires multiple spreadsheets, but they get it done.
Now imagine an environment where the accountants don’t have to create the Franken-reports every month. Less time questioning you, and project cost reliability is your new reality.
A fully integrated financial package that includes the ability to forecast, budget, plan, and analyze the businesses financial health. Even more appealing, you will have the ability to view all costing and financial transactions that are related to a specific project, thus, truly giving you the ability to make decisions that affect overall profitability.
No more Franken-reports that are produced monthly, and subject to error. Simple, efficient, and accurate reporting is a click away with SyteLine. Printing and mass-exporting is reduced or eliminated with beautiful dashboards, gauges and KPI alerts. Welcome to the other side of financials . . . where nobody gets chased through the village with fire.
