As investors and regulators around the globe are calling for
increased financial transparency, SAS says it has answered that call with its latest version of SAS Financial Management Solutions.

SAS says its data analysis and consistency are at the heart of
financial transparency. Layer that with multidimensional reporting and
forecasting capabilities, the Cary-based company says, and any organization has the ability to know the financial health of the organization at any given moment.

For example, Cargill Incorporated, a food and agricultural company, uses SAS Financial Management Solutions for the consolidation and analysis of its legal and management reporting. Minneapolis-based Cargill says that by implementing SAS, it was able to consolidate its financial statements efficiently, and handle growth and complexity in its reporting structures without adding staff.

“Our customers, like Cargill, are under increased scrutiny by federal and international agencies to prove their financial stability,” Phil Strand, manager of worldwide strategic marketing and financial management solutions at SAS. “With SAS’ financial management solutions any company can have the confidence to face the market knowing their data is accurate and reliable and they can make sound business decisions based on that data.”
