Client Situation

Financial reporting for seven separate entities and consolidated statements was challenging due to excessive data in Excel sheets, making it difficult to extract useful insights. Quarterly and yearly budgets were prepared meticulously for each entity, but the process was hindered by lengthy data preparation, sometimes taking several days for just one report. Manual analysis added to the difficulty, making it hard to interpret and draw meaningful conclusions from the data. Creating consolidated year-on-year reports for each financial year was also daunting.


  • The manual ETL process took over 5 hours for data refresh.
  • Creating 100+ reports with more than thousand variants in the month-end was time consuming.
  • Reports developed in Excel resulted in loss of actionable insights.
  • It took 18 to 20 hours to run a reporting pack manually.
  • The company has seven entities – each entity had its own financial reporting pack. Solution

Our team spearheaded a solution that would not only streamline this process but revolutionize the way financial insights were accessed and utilized. The implementation of month-end accounting and finance dashboards using augmented analytics marked a significant breakthrough.

These user-friendly dashboards, accessible via browsers and mobile devices, replaced the necessity for numerous reports, presenting a simplified, visual depiction of the company’s financial status.

Ten tabs seamlessly replaced thousands of variants, ensuring a comprehensive yet easily navigable experience. Role-based access security was enforced to maintain confidentiality, granting executive management a unified view and allowing controllers to delve into journal entry-level details.

The laborious manual ETL process, consuming over 5 hours for data refresh, was supplanted with an automated system, directly extracting, and transforming data from the business system. This not only saved time but also eradicated the need for costly data warehouses.
