Pros: With ExecuReports importing of trial balances into the reporting tool is quick and simple, reporting is accurate and fast, and also the variety of reports available at various levels of the organisation is structured to give the correct user the right level of financial info. Also, the dashboard reporting is of great value when reviewing performance against KPI's. Budgeting spreadsheets can be exported to various department heads to be populated and then re-imported into the system once completed. Also the system is available online and access controlled, meaning that business unit heads or finance staff can simply log in wherever they are based within the country or the world and input data and extract reports.

Cons: The first version of the budget module was a bit tedious to work with in terms of inputs of data into monthly columns for each expense item, but I believe that input methods of the later versions of the software would have corrected this.

Overall: As a divisional general manager finance in a large group of companies, ExecuReports made my life very easy when it came to month-end management accounts, budgeting and forecasting. Servicing a group or division with a vast amount of companies consolidating up at divisional and group level, it removed the pain of using a vast number of Excel spreadsheets to import various accounting systems trial balances into monthly management accounting packs. ExecuReports did away with manual data manipulation, erroneous formulas in spreadsheets and time waste of accounting staff as well as reviewers having to check and recheck monthly reporting for accuracy.

Recommendations to other buyers: For medium to larger corporations, this software is relatively inexpensive compared to some of the larger system name brands available in the market and from what I had experienced is a lot more adaptable at a far less costly price than many of the larger competitive products.

Thank you Clinton for your review. The upload functionality has definitely been optimised and automated web services are also now used for importing data.
