Reporting

Reporting solution for Oracle's JD Edwards

In today's environment, financial information has to be analysed from numerous different perspectives and verified almost daily in support of business decision-making. Department-specific cost information, sales revenues by area, budgets and operating costs must be up-to-date and available at all times. Information is required in real time and the tools needed for this must be simple and easy to use. Centric has developed user-friendly, high-performance solutions for these requirements.

Executive DASH allows users to construct dashboard views for critical business data. Executive DASH is an Excel add-in which reads the data from your databases and imports it into a spreadsheet (available for DB2, Oracle, SQL Server and Microsoft Access):

  • Links to different data sources
  • Easy-to-use query builder
  • Import/export of preconfigured queries

The special features of this software include:

    You can use wild cards, scales or segment lists to call up any combination of accounts in a single row within the spreadsheet.
  • Drill-down functionality
    The ability to drill down in real time makes it possible to retrieve detailed account and general ledger information to create a complete summary of account information, information on general ledger entries and to access creditors, debtors and inventory subsystems. You can combine your financial reports with account analyses in order to achieve more efficient analysis of the most important data.
