Metapraxis Nordic worked with the senior financial management of the group to build visual subsidiary board reports that show both historic and future trends. The board reports were made to effectively analyze and visualize variances, historic and future trends, forecast risks and future scenarios. Important key indicators were defined and presented in monthly, accumulated and moving annual totals together with variances versus previous year, budget and forecast. Furthermore, the du Pont-scheme for analyzing profitability and working capital was included.
