Standalone – Cross Calculation Dual Range

The Cross calculation Dual Range report sums up a set of periods, for each time range and specific category.

These set of reports are useful when the consolidation is periodic, or when several months need to be summed up and compared to a corresponding selection.

The reports allow users to select multiple months from two different time ranges and two versions. The report will list the cross-calculation results per each for the selected entities, flows, categories, and calculate the variance & variance % between them

All the KPIs and their corresponding graphs and charts will include this form of logic to derive the visual comparisons.

The Summary report includes the balance sheet, P&L and Cashflow. The selection made in each corresponding tab will influence the section in the summary report automatically.

Each sheet has its own 2 cross calculations, and the variance calculations linked to their results. All the table reports include embedded graphs in the Variance percentage column. Linked analysis in some of the graphs and time series with forecast is independent of the time range selections.

Standalone – Cross Calculation

Standalone – Intercompany Insights

A centralized model that is designed to automatically derive the concise profitability and cost per object, after a set of allocation procedures.

The intercompany story includes a set of reports and graphs to cover:

  • Profit and Loss Intercompany Accounts
  • Dividends payable & Dividends Receivables
  • Investment Breakdown

The reports will display the entities with affiliates and subsidiaries, for each intercompany account for the selected month, flow and currency.

Consolidated – Cross Calculation Dual Selection

The Cross calculation Dual Selection allows for comparison of two time periods & version. (Unlike the dual range, it will not sum up periods)

These set of reports are useful when the consolidation is YTD, or when the values are cumulative and do not need to be summed up for reporting and analytics.

The reports allow users to select a single month from two different time ranges and two versions. The report will list the cross-calculation results per each for the selected Scopes, flows, categories, and calculate the variance & variance % between them

All the KPIs and their corresponding graphs and charts will include this form of logic to derive the visual comparisons.

The Summary report includes the balance sheet, P&L and Cashflow. The selection made in each corresponding tab will influence the section in the summary report automatically.

Each sheet has its own 2 cross calculations, and the variance calculations linked to their results. All the table reports include embedded graphs in the Variance percentage column. Linked analysis in some of the graphs and time series with forecast is independent of the time range selections.

Consolidated – Cross Calculation Dual Selection

Consolidated – Budget & Forecast Input

A set of input templates configured to allow entry of consolidated budget and forecast values

The templates are designed to allow the users to select a scope and conduct entry. One set of templates will store the values using the native disaggregation, meaning onto all the entities within a scope, meanwhile the second will automatically store the values on a staging entity that represents the scope.

The first two templates are labeled as Native. When entering consolidated budget and forecast values, they will be disaggregated on all the entities within the selected scope.

Meanwhile, when using custom templates, an advanced filter is created to confine the Budget and Forecast entries to a specific Audit Trail and Entity, meanwhile showing the total actuals for all entities and audit trails, for a specific scope.

If each scope has a specific staging entity, the same can be used by specifying the condition (for scope A, Staging entity A) or by using Consolidated – Budget & Forecast Cross Calculation Input
