PHASED IMPLEMENTATION

Sysphera is a robust solution. However, it can be set up locally and develops naturally along with the changes and needs of the customer. It features a flexible platform with a highly scalable architecture, which can be made available to hundreds or thousands of users throughout the company. Its web design and optional integration with Excel, makes the learning curve easier for users, largely in the financial area. Advanced security features such as integration with Active Directory (LDAP) ensure that appropriate levels of access to users be reinforced in throughout the company and sensitive information is available only to users who need it. The web approach distributes all application functions to customers through a browser and effectively enhances the Internet or an existing Intranet to expand access to the system.

MANAGEMENT

  • REPORTS AND CONTROL PANELS

    Organizations of all sizes face significant challenges to the generation and distribution of management reports. Despite advances, even today, many companies continue to manually produce their financial reports taking up hours of highly skilled staff time to produce monthly board books and a few dozen reports.

    The efforts made by the control and technology areas are often not enough to meet the demand for quality information acquired in minimal time.

    Sysphera is a solution fully equipped to meet this demand and reduce the efforts of those involved. The statutory reports are dynamically produced through the centralized information base, producing highly structured reports, complemented with comments and explanatory notes by the managers. All managerial reports are intuitive and can be tailored, with integrated analysis capacity (drilldown). All reports can be scheduled and subscribed by users to receive automatic emails for every data update.

    The right information is delivered at the right time, to the right people. Using the web, MS-Excel or in PDF, as agreed with each executive.

    These capabilities are a crucial part of management support provided by Sysphera and represent a vast combination of tables and graphs, fully parameterized without the need to resort at any time to experts in technology.

  • SCENARIOS, SIMULATION AND “WHAT-IF” ANALYSIS

    Through an intuitive interface, managers are able to develop and test multiple scenarios, do sensitivity analyzes and identify initiatives more aligned with the strategic goals of the company.

    In addition, Sysphera Enterprise Management Suite enables the identification of the best levers of the company’s value, supporting more consistent decisions, all carried out in minimal time.

  • PLANNING, BUDGETING & FORECASTING

    Sysphera includes several features geared towards initiatives of Planning, Budgeting and Forecasting, undertaking the orchestration of the budget process through powerful workflow management features. The solution brings together the budgets, results, projections and performance metrics into a single, scalable web application. Using Sysphera the company collects its financial results quickly, consistently and efficiently. This dramatically reduces the cycles of financial consolidation, along with the statutory and regulatory reports. Data inputs are primarily facilitated by copying data directly from MS-Excel spreadsheet, by using the copy and paste functions or through the Sysphera MS-Excel add-on.

    Sysphera was designed to address the interdependencies and the potential effect on the change of any business parameter. Answering issues such as: "if the revenue from a product line drops, what impact would it have on earnings? And on money requirements?

    Good planning does not just mean creating a plan, it means creating many plans based on different scenarios: best case, likely case, worst case scenarios, different revenue and costs scenarios, different acquisition scenarios, and so on. Even the best designed plans must be constantly re-examined. Uncertain and volatile market conditions may request the modeling of multiple scenarios to compare complex alternatives.

    With Sysphera the financial, regulatory and operational areas can budget and analyze their resources in numerous scenarios for a better understanding of the initiatives that will optimize business performance. Sysphera improves corporate governance and provides the basis for an extremely favorable environment for collaborative management and is results-oriented.

CONSOLIDATION OF ACCOUNTING STATEMENTS

The consolidation of accounting statements is complex and exhaustive, which may lead to the monopolization of the finance team, as well as other members of senior management.

Regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and others are imposing increasingly tighter deadlines on companies to generate reports, audit results and the consequent release of bonuses. Not to mention the demands on control and governance processes. All these pressures affect the cycle of an organization’s financial consolidation. Global operations are becoming increasing complex and the organizational structure is becoming ever more sophisticated. Currency conversions, allocations and intercompany eliminations are all necessary to obtain final results. Any failure in this process creates delays in getting the numbers. Inconsistencies or missing information will be immediately reported to the company’s board of directors.

The fact that consolidation is usually done manually using Excel makes it difficult to reflect changes in organizational structure without a tough workload. Acquisitions, as well as managing the rounded figures and distributed financial documents to several locations, usually represent a major headache when reviewing the consistency of the values presented.

Sysphera consolidates all business units and companies of the group, even different lines of business with different accounting structures, with heterogeneous cost structures and financial plans not unified, in any currency, online and in real-time. It eliminates the book value of the parent company's investment in each subsidiary, eliminates the part of the parent company in the equity of subsidiaries and eliminates the intergroup’s balance sheets, dividends, transactions, costs and revenues. Sysphera offers consistent and updated information to directors, shareholders and regulatory agencies.

As a result, we can reduce substantially the consolidation cycle of the company, establishing more time for managers to conduct more in-depth analyzes.
