DataRails is pioneering the evolution in financial reporting for SMEs and bridging the digital gap by providing the first real truly accessible upgrade to FP&A since Excel was introduced. Its cloud-based platform automates the process of consolidating, analyzing, and reporting financial data without changing the way users work. With DataRails, FP&A analysts and finance professionals can conduct advanced investigations into their data to extract formerly unattainable insights and enjoy a 360-degree view of all unified organizational data all while continuing to work in Excel as they’re used to, freeing up employees’ time to focus on more important business tasks.
