PeopleSoft Financial Analytics

Forward-thinking CFOs are embracing a new mission for their finance organizations. This new mission calls for central finance to assume a more prescriptive role driving high-impact decisions, identifying obstacles and opportunities, and providing interpretative guidance on business trends and financial implications. These finance organizations also ensure that financial rigor and regulatory compliance are consistently applied across the company. All while satisfying extraordinary demands to meet or exceed quarterly numbers.

PeopleSoft financial analytics provides the tools you need to develop, manage, and measure corporate strategies that can drive the most profitable growth. Now you can drive accountability for profitability down to the line by pushing out the information that line managers need to run their organizations in the most effective and profitable manner possible.
