By combining Macola with LucaNet’s Advanced Financial Reporting solution, companies that have operations in multiple domestic and international locations can consolidate all of their financial reporting quickly and easily. This results in trustworthy, complete insight into all of the financial results from across the entire enterprise, in turn increasing the accuracy of forecasting.

“It takes me at least 60% less time to do monthly financial reporting through LucaNet. It’s such a unique product that not only works with most ERP systems such as Macola, but LucaNet is also able to bring data sources from multiple systems into just one reporting tool. As a finance person, it’s a dream come true. Even our IT manager says that he thought the integration would be difficult, but it was a breeze!”
