Dimensional Insight Aims to Improve Reporting and Decision Support for JD Edwards Financials Customers

Share Article

Webinar will show how self-service reporting can augment shortcomings of JD Edwards or any other general ledger system and ease the reporting burden for Finance and IT staff.

Businesses need a more direct, faster, and less labor-intensive way to dig into transaction level detail to identify and solve problems.

Dimensional Insight, a developer of business intelligence software, announced today it would conduct a free webinar to demonstrate the use of its technology to improve general ledger (GL) reporting in JD Edwards Financial Management Suite. Entitled “Self-Service GL Reporting for JD Edwards Financials,” the webinar will be conducted Thursday, February 21, 2013, at 2:00 PM Eastern time.

“Investigating a budget variance reflected in the GL is often an arduous and time-consuming task for business managers, finance, and IT,” explained Frank Smietana, Manager of Product Marketing for Supply Chain and Manufacturing at Dimensional Insight. “The GL typically contains only summarized data from loosely integrated transactional source systems such as payroll, inventory, and accounts payable. Investigating a variance typically triggers a flurry of requests for source system transactional reporting to uncover the reason for the variance. Businesses need a more direct, faster, and less labor-intensive way to dig into transaction level details to identify and solve problems.”

In the webinar, Dimensional Insight will demonstrate the use of DI General Ledger Advisor to augment GL reporting from JD Edwards Financials or any other GL system. DI General Ledger Advisor enables secure self-service reports and dashboards, easing report distribution to business managers who need to track expense performance against budget. If a variance is noted, business managers can easily click and dive into the transaction level details to discover the cause of the variance. This reduces or eliminates requests for one-off reports of transaction details, thereby enabling speedier corrective measures, and reducing the burden on Finance and IT staff.

“DI General Ledger Advisor is a great solution for any organization that needs better GL reporting but does not want to go through the expense or disruption of replacing their entrenched GL or support systems,” according to Smietana.
