deFacto Global extended the client’s model to include a subledger reporting feature that offered various benefits, including ERP data synchronization and the ability to easily review and make necessary changes to their accounts receivable, leading to a more informed decision-making process.
While attempting to migrate to Navision, the client became aware that the migration would reduce efficiency in reporting subledger data. This is due to the need to define report definitions on each run, which is a time-consuming process that is also prone to errors. Furthermore, the default report formatting is limited, making it challenging to extract valuable insights from the data. As a result, grouping analysis and comparison can only be done through manual manipulation of the data, which poses a significant challenge when comparing reporting periods. Additionally, there is a risk of significant historical data loss for the supplier, which could further exacerbate these issues.
