Your financial system cannot handle ad-hoc queries

You’re forever waiting on your business intelligence team to return insights and analysis that you need to run your business.  Does that sound familiar?  Unfortunately, this is the case for so many organizations across the world.  While the state of analytics has come leaps and bounds in recent years, none of this value is realized if it can’t be relied upon to be timely and within reach when needed most.

Your financial system cannot handle ad-hoc queries

You’re forever waiting on your business intelligence team to return insights and analysis that you need to run your business.  Does that sound familiar?  Unfortunately, this is the case for so many organizations across the world.  While the state of analytics has come leaps and bounds in recent years, none of this value is realized if it can’t be relied upon to be timely and within reach when needed most.

Why does the lack of immediate feedback hold companies back?

Time is money.  We all know the saying but it’s only when you’re trying to make complicated business decisions that you realize just how true that is.  Every leader in every industry is trying to make sense of the information coming their way and make the decisions necessary to optimize their circle of influence.  But this decision-making relies on accurate and timely data, without which – they are merely shooting in the dark. This is especially true in our modern era where the ground under your feet is shifting faster than ever before.  If you can’t be decisive and make quick decisions under pressure, you’re going to be left behind.  This is why it can be so frustrating when your financial system cannot give you the insights that you need in real-time.  You know that the data is there but you can’t pull the information that you need because it’s shrouded in technicalities and remains out of your grasp.

What if you could create your own Ad-Hoc queries?

One of Apliqo’s key value propositions is to tackle this particular challenge.  Our software intends to empower everyone within the organization to get the information that they need when they need it.  No one should ever be reliant on someone else to understand their own business.  We wanted to create something where you could pull sophisticated reports and analytics for yourself, no matter how much technical knowledge you had. 

What we’ve arrived at is Apliqo’s dynamic and interactive reporting functionality that sits on top of the complex financial planning and analytics at the core of the system.  Now, business analytics is available to all parts of your business, allowing for much-improved efficiency and speed across your decision-making.  This is not to say that it replaces traditional business intelligence, but rather augments it to put the power back in the hands of those business unit owners who need it.

It’s simple, intuitive, and bound to change the way that you run your organization.
