Q: What are some new initiatives coming from the SAM Finance and Accounting department?
A: We are working on implementing a new accounting system, NetSuite, that will house all of our corporate and client financial information in one place. This will help us consistently apply financial information which will make comparing data more meaningful. We are also working on a reporting system, Oracle EPM Planning, that will house all our dashboards, financial reports, and analyses. The goal of Finance is to provide meaningful financial information to decision makers, and these two tools will help achieve that goal.
