Sage ERP Accpac Solutions: Accpac Insight


A high-performance business analytics tool, Accpac Insight helps you create and customise reports that withstand the toughest scrutiny. Insight extends far beyond your general ledger, providing a powerful solution complete with bottom-up budgeting, write-back, drill-down and other advanced capabilities.

Accpac Insight

Insight provides access to your critical operational and sales data, as well as customer, product, vendor, employee, project, geographic data and more. You can quickly integrate information into meaningful reports and distribute them enterprise-wide while applying user-level security, ensuring that confidential information remains confidential.

From basic reporting capabilities to full-feature enterprise consolidations, Insight makes managing critical data easy. With powerful Universal Database Access (UDA) functionality, you can integrate information not only from Sage ERP Accpac systems, but also from other ODBC-compliant databases – with the ability to build your own queries.

Accpac Insight facilitates rapid report creation by converting information already set up in your transaction-orientated Accpac accounting system or any other related application into a single data warehousing system. It helps employees in remote offices and disparate departments manage, distribute and collaborate on data from a single, unified source. Deploy your reports over the web to key personnel throughout your company, or send a Microsoft Excel file that they can review on demand.

Improve Operational Efficiency

Accpac Insight helps you cut your consolidating and reporting cycles and close your books faster than ever. For even quicker reporting, it includes powerful data warehousing capabilities optimised to help you efficiently manage your data. Data warehousing is also an ideal solution for companies with remote employees or multiple locations that need on-demand access to company data, as well as those who have very large data sets and want to optimise their reporting systems for high-performance analysis.

Advanced Data Management

The Data Warehouse acts as a warehouse for your vital information, allowing you to extract only the key data you want to report on. By capturing only the data you need, you eliminate the time-consuming task of sifting through irrelevant information and can focus on the business at hand. It also contains budgeting capabilities, scheduling functionalities and special security features to ensure that only authorised personnel have access to key data. It also includes replication capabilities that let you synchronise your data warehouse across multiple locations – making key information even more accessible to employees across the enterprise.

Managerial Reporting and Analysis at your fingertips

From basic reporting capabilities to full-feature enterprise consolidations, Insight offers a range of components designed to help you build a system according to your particular business requirement. 

  • AUTHOR

    Author helps you create new templates quickly and easily in Microsoft Excel for repeated use. The wizard-driven template design allows you to easily produce pixel-perfect reports in minutes. Once your reports have been generated, you have the full capabilities of Excel at your disposal to further format and generate additional charts and graphics.

  • VIEWER

    Viewer allows you to run reports against the reporting database within Insight and present reports in Excel, extending the value of the data available through your Accpac system. Featuring powerful cross-module drill-down capabilities. Viewer lets you drill down to supporting transaction detail and even “drill around” from module to module, making it simple to view underlying transactions and subtotals.

  • WEB DEPLOYMENT SERVER

    Ideal for mobile and remote staff, the Web Deployment Server lets you refresh reports and publish them on the Internet or a company intranet. You can maintain anytime, anywhere reporting and provide drill-down capabilities without installing any software on users’ computers beyond their Web browsers.

  • ENTERPRISE BUDGETING

    Enterprise Budgeting can be used to create very complex budget models containing multiple worksheets. You can deliver templates for end-user data entry and manipulation and consolidate input into a single Data Mart to prepare an end-user budget in a true bottom-up fashion.

  • CONSOLIDATIONS

    Consolidations help you deliver financial statements that illustrate financial and non-financial critical performance indicators. Consolidations allow you to produce merged accounts for statuary or management reporting purposes that are ready for analysis. Multiple unrelated databases can be consolidated into a single set of financial reports, so that employees, brach offices and partners can operate within a single, unified view of key financial data at any time.

  • UNIVERSAL DATABASE ACCESS (UDA)

    UDA extends the reach of Accpac Insight to external applications and additional modules within Accpac applications. It provides an intuitive interface to most ODBC – compliant databases and brings that information into one single enterprise-wide data warehouse for consolidated reporting and analysis

  • ALERTS

    Alerts delivers the information needed to create highly responsive, proactive, customer-facing organisations. You can automate the reporting process in the enterprise by scheduling data warehouse updates, report generation and report refreshes. You can even schedule reports to run after business hours to take advantage of underutilised computing resources that typically sit idle during this time.

Accpac Insight helps you dramatically improve reporting performance, make more informed decisions and respond rapidly to ever-changing business conditions.
