Embracing digital transformation for corporate reportingLisa Flanders
Enhancing stakeholder engagement with Bastion’s robust online reporting solutions.
In today’s fast-paced digital world, access to information is essential. It is not enough to have data; it needs to be easily accessible and consumable. This is where Bastion’s online reporting solutions come into play. Our online reporting solutions house financial information in a well-structured format that is easily navigable and accessible on any device from anywhere in the world. Bastion’s online reporting solutions are designed with digital natives in mind, and they offer numerous benefits for organisations.
“Bastion’s online reporting solutions are designed with digital natives in mind, providing stakeholders with the insights they need to make informed decisions quickly and efficiently.”
One of the most significant benefits of using online reporting solutions is that they are environmentally friendly and help fuel your ESG agenda. The world is facing an environmental crisis, and every little step we take towards reducing waste and conserving resources counts. Online reporting solutions reduce paper waste and carbon footprint as they eliminate the need for printing, postage, and storage costs. This not only saves resources but also reduces the cost of printing and mailing physical reports.
Another significant benefit of using online reporting solutions is cost-effectiveness. As mentioned earlier, online reporting solutions eliminate the need for printing, postage, and storage costs, making them a more cost-effective solution. Printing, mailing, and storing physical reports can be expensive, especially for large organisations that have to print thousands of reports.
Easy accessibility is another critical benefit of using online reporting solutions. In today’s digital age, people expect information to be accessible anytime, anywhere, and from any device. Our online reporting solutions provide this flexibility, making it easier for your stakeholders to access financial information whenever they need it. This means that your stakeholders can view the information on their mobile devices, tablets, or laptops, giving them the freedom to access it from anywhere in the world. Accessing information via HTML is often better than downloading a PDF because it provides more flexibility and interactivity. HTML pages can be viewed on any device with an internet connection, including mobile devices, whereas PDFs may not be optimised for certain devices.
Interactive features are also a significant benefit of using online reporting solutions. Online reporting solutions allow for videos, links, and other multimedia features to enhance the user experience. This makes it easier for stakeholders to understand complex financial data, and it also makes the information more engaging. Videos and links can provide additional context to the data, making it easier for stakeholders to make informed decisions.
Data visualization is another significant benefit of using online reporting solutions. Online reporting solutions allow for the use of charts, graphs, and other visual aids to present complex data in an easily digestible format. This means that your stakeholders can quickly understand the financial data without having to read through pages of text. Data visualization makes the information more accessible, and it also makes it easier for stakeholders to compare data from previous years.
Finally, analytical insights are a crucial benefit of using online reporting solutions. Online reporting solutions enable the use of data analytics tools to provide valuable insights on engagement. This means that organisations can understand how stakeholders are engaging with the financial data and make informed decisions based on that data. Analytical insights can provide valuable information on which parts of the report are being viewed the most, how long stakeholders are spending on each section, and what types of devices they are using to access the information.
