Reduce the time it takes to produce reports, and improve the presentation of the mismatch reports Benefit: The Report Wizard intercompany matching process was redesigned to match local currency intercompany balances. The Intercompany reports were designed to filter and sort mismatches so that the report was reduced to a single page if printed. “The MerlinXL Report Wizard has become a integral tool to all reporting processes out of HFM, offering standardised reports across the group, drill-down functionality enabling rapid ad-hoc analysis, plus the user-friendly inter-company reports. The overall result is that controllers are able to spend more time driving action in response to reports, than reporting itself.” - Mondi
