Using Longview’s holistic solutions, numerous companies could turn the corner. In one instance, the client was lacking tax-sensitized data and using MS Excel to consolidate the required information. Additionally, the client was failing to meet the deadlines for report submissions. After deploying applications developed by Longview, the client could achieve faster close cycles, automate integration with their consolidation system, and analyze results instantaneously. Eventually, the client could control the data and submit reports before the deadline.
As a strategic partner to the CFO, Longview has been expanding its product portfolio consistently. As the CFOs are dealing with increasing number of functional areas and data sources, the company is busy maximizing its strength in tax, finance, and analytics. Besides its growing footprint across regions, the company has released a new product that will help CFOs and finance teams address the evolving tax reforms.
