She needs to gather data from different sources. Some data is available in tools (e.g. accounting data), and other data needs to be collected from colleagues (e.g. marketing assumptions).
It is imperative that her files don’t break or contain inaccurate data. On top of that, most planning, forecasting, or reporting processes follow a strict timeline, and it is important to meet deadlines.
She wants to make her life easier as a CFO and to spend more time on what matters most — shaping and making decisions based on solid data and models.
With Layer, Anna can facilitate collaboration while keeping complete control over her file.
She gives ten different departments access to specific parts of the file while protecting sensitive information like salary data.
Her colleagues can now provide input and edit assumptions.
Before these changes affect Anna’s file, however, she has to review them.
Tracking changes and highlighting help her understand what has been changed at one glance. She can now accept or reject individual or all changes.
Reminders and notifications make sure that her colleagues provide their data on time.
On top of that, Anna uses Layer to pull HR data and accounting data into her file with a click of a button.
