OfficeConnect and Excel Interface for Planning

Modeling and Consolidation
Weighted Average Translation has been improved and the setup process is fully automated. In a matter of a few clicks, you can set up Weighted Average Translation and define exactly how often you want the account balances to be reset and how the balances are carried forward. For companies that budget the balance sheet in multiple currencies, you’ll be able to see the implications of a change across your entire balance sheet in all currencies. And with retained earnings accounts, you decide how you want to move balances forward by selecting the target account in a dropdown list.
It’s even easier to visualize better business performance. Tailor drop-down menus to the perfect size, and search for dimension values on the context menu bar to quickly find the exact dimension value you are looking for.
New dimension attribute values from your source system are now created on the fly during the dimension import process. Whether the source is an Excel spreadsheet, CRM, ERP, HR, or an operational system, your planning models, forecasts, reports, and dashboards will all have the latest dimension attribute values. As an example, if understanding sales by the color “red” and the size “Extra Large” is important to your sales success, you can now automatically load these dimension attribute values as part of the dimension import process.
