7 Deadly Sins of Financial Management Software

Keep your financial management system pure in 2014.  Learn about the seven financial management challenges facing companies today… and the steps you can take to succeed in 2014

1. Scattered Business Data - You want to close books faster, but can't manage and integrate the flux of information.  Five years ago, 70% of businesses were able to close their books in six days.  Now only 50% can do that. 

2. Departmental Silos - The financial department cannot collaborate with other departments to speed up and streamline financial processes.  Employees spend nearly 28% of every work week answering emails.  Adding enterprise social technologies can improve productivity by 20-25%.

3. Spreadsheet Gluttony - Spreadsheets are time consuming and full of reporting errors.  Ninety percent of companies are using spreadsheets for planning, budgeting, forecasting, and 88% of spreadsheets have errors.

Click here to find out the remaining four sins often committed and how to overcome them in your business.
