Finance and Budgeting is a complex, time consuming, multi department dependent, cost center dependent, location dependent and increasing the number of excel spreadsheets for some critical data capturing.
The financial team relies predominantly on excel spreadsheets to manage the company’s budgeting and expenses process with respect to production planning across different locations.
The finance team has to manually create, develop, distribute and collect the budget & expenses information from users department wise, region and location wise i.e, (Financial aid, Headcount details, Production and Non Production annual budget, Expenses reporting, SKU wise production sheets, BPC expenses etc.) and consolidate them into excel sheets.
The development of financial reports (Overhead expenses, Inventory, Cash flow, Detailed summary sheets of production, Region expense, Budget, Actual and variance sheets, Monthly, quarterly or yearly expense reports etc.) at the month end closing becomes time consuming process and prone to human errors. Manual intervention to collect and format reports and then resolving the issues results in a delay to produce proper decision-making reports to the management.
