Manual Process with Spreadsheets and Control Issues
With the growth of MCL Land and the significantly increased workload within the company's finance team, reforming and upgrading its financial process was paramount in making itself more efficient.
Furthermore, due to the manual process of data collection and analysis via spreadsheets from multiple subsidiaries, reporting was complicated and time-consuming. This also made it difficult to detect errors and changes in data until the final reports were put together.
Seamless Data Integration and Transparency
Using LucaNet, the team has now eliminated the need to link multiple spreadsheets together. Data is integrated on a one-source-of-truth platform and automatically flows into user-defined reports. Changes in data and format are reflected almost instantaneously, allowing for on-the-spot review and adjustments. With the drill down feature, the team can also efficiently investigate reported numbers down to the source. This allowed MCL Land to do more with reporting and review while enjoying newfound data transparency.
Efficient Financial Consolidation
After a smooth implementation and training period with LucaNet’s professional consultants, MCL Land was able to set up a full self-service consolidation and planning process for a lean team of only three users. Monthly consolidation and comparison reports can now be generated on-demand with just a few clicks.
With the time-savings and error-free information, the team will be able to focus on making meaningful financial analysis and impact for MCL Land and its business units.
