SAP users know that when it comes to financial planning and analysis (FP&A), precision, accuracy and speed are crucial for a company’s overall financial health. Many will find that some of their processes may not be fast or precise enough to match the demands of a company’s needs and the digital transformation. Therefore, businesses embark on the journey of searching for valuable advice that could help them identify what needs to be updated or reconfigured in their financial systems.

RLDatix, a global enterprise software company, has faced this issue and decided to seek advice from financial consolidation specialists. The business offers software and services tailored to healthcare organizations, supporting hospitals and other providers with risk mitigation, regulatory compliance, and workforce management sources.
