Allen SchatzDirector of Financial Reporting & Planning
As director of financial reporting and planning for a division of a leading media and entertainment company, Allen is responsible for collecting and disseminating financial information. A plethora of multi-linked spreadsheets scattered over a multitude of revenue and cost centers made data gathering manual and time-intensive.
Allen helped replace the company’s archaic spreadsheet system with a multi-dimensional financial performance management (FPM) solution that automatically gathers and aggregates data in real-time from the disparate centers. With a centralized repository, planning and reporting can be done in real time and reports that used to take hours to create are now done with the push of a button in only minutes, leaving more time for Allen to analyze the results. This allows him to help management make important decisions.
Allen’s passion for the solution led to his endorsement of a corporate-wide initiative. This will align all the different divisions, enabling everyone to accomplish more by working smarter, not harder.
