Why? Because management reporting is a broken process that hasn’t caught up with today’s management technologies. Typically, management reports are compiled by a team that copies and pastes information from a range of business systems, emails, presentations, and other sources. This process is lengthy and error-prone, with significant risks for transcription errors and incorrect data. Version control and data integrity introduce even more communications risks for important leadership presentations.
Because strategic information is not available for timely access, management meetings frequently become debate sessions about the numbers rather than informing crucial decisions. Not only is reporting delayed but the format can be confusing and lack appropriate history for decision making.
Leadership meetings can feel like an expensive waste of time.

As management evolves, ClearPoint will evolve with it. According to Dylan Miyake, “ClearPoint will continue to innovate to meet our customer needs. Input and feedback from our customers create a partnership to inform our ongoing enhancements.” In early March 2014, ClearPoint will have released ClearPoint 7.0 that will make the management reporting process even more effortless.
