See How Tagetik Speeds Up Your Reporting Cycle by Tackling the ‘Last Mile of Finance’

Date: Friday, April 17, 2015
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT There are no CPE Credits for this Solution Demonstration.
For years, speeding up the reporting process was equal to speeding up the close. While still an important focus for companies, the time burden for reporting cycles has shifted to reporting that takes place after the close - the last mile of finance.

These reports include:

  • disclosure and regulatory reports - 10Q, 10K, and industry regulatory reports
  • internal communications - such as management reporting, budget books and board books
  • external communications - such as press releases, investor communications, annual reports, sustainability reports

  • This reporting requires pulling data from multiple Excel sheets and other data sources across departments. The process is inherently risky, a laborious effort that doesn’t lend itself for last-minute adjustments.

    This session will take you through a solution, Tagetik’s CDM, that sits on top of existing systems and solves the challenges associated with this process, drastically reducing the time it takes to produce these reports and simultaneously mitigate the risk associated with this process.
