Account-Ability History

Account-Ability Ltd was founded in 1998. Account-Ability was established to help businesses with their financial planning and analysis.

Account Ability saw that many managers in business did not have the key financial and non financial data readily available as a result managers were unable to make the necessary strategic decisions quickly enough. Managers were unsure of their performance, budget and forecast cycles were a slow and painful process.

Finance directors should be able to have account ability reviews with all their managers on company performance. Providing clear data to support these meetings is vital. Ensuring financial reports are published rapidly and are easily accessible by all staff ensures that performance is regularly monitored and when necessary changes are made.

Company structures are constantly changing with many external factors affecting budgeting, reporting and consolidation requirements. Reliable reporting and planning structures need to be developed. Any solution needs to be easy to implement and rapidly cope with change. Some software solutions we had the feedback that requests for IT to change reports took 6 months or more, this we felt was unacceptable.

Most companies in 1998, and indeed a large number of companies today, produce all their management information via Excel. Budgets and forecasts are produced in many different spreadsheets, with multiple iterations.

Excel spreadsheets are perceived to be free. However, Excel has many issues, most commonly, slow, error prone, difficult to change, to list a few. Resulting in accountants spending too much time producing reports and plans, and not enough time actually understanding the data.

Today little has changed. Excel spreadsheets are the primary financial planning and reporting solution for many businesses. But with Corporate Performance management software there is a solution.
