The benefits: automating external reporting procedures

The key benefits of automating external reporting procedures

Most organisations continue to manually produce their external financial documents, such as the annual report, quarterly and annual submissions to regulatory bodies and many other statutory and regulatory filings.

Organisations typically face a number of challenges in the completion of the external financial reports including: time-consuming, manual processes; data inaccuracies; no audit trail documenting who made changes; no common system to manage.

Automating the external reporting process can lead to the following benefits:

Reduced personnel costs
Lower external costs
Reduced risk
Reduced cycle time
