This time around, a flawless annual report

The disclosure management software for creating annual reports

The perfect disclosure management software delivers a complete solution for preparing annual and management reports that are ready to print. All aspects of preparing consolidated financial statements are covered, from consolidation in LucaNet software to the final generation of the report. Each step can be implemented by users themselves. Thanks to an import process that is easy to define, the disclosure management software will transfer all base data from LucaNet and will update all tables, figures in running text and even imported text values, showing you exactly which figures have changed since the last data import. An individually customizable workflow allows you to integrate a reliable check principle, with all changes shown transparently in a full audit trail.

With our extensive product portfolio, you’ll benefit from:

  • SmartNotes, the core product for creating annual reports from our partner, AMANA consulting
  • The Layout Robot module for creating print-ready reports
  • The Factory module for generating similar sets of individual financial statements

An intelligent annual reporting tool

How LucaNet software can benefit you

Optimal interfaces

Import your financial data from all common FPM, ERP, and other source systems, such as LucaNet. Tables, diagrams, and figures in running text can be automatically filled with data in MS Word, Excel, or PowerPoint formats from your source system. Report preparation continues to take place in the MS Office environment you’re familiar with.

Consistent dataset

Validation and consistency checks guarantee you the highest possible data quality and reduce errors. Once data have been successfully imported, it immediately becomes clear in which sections of the report changes have been made. At the same time, a consistent presentation across different report sections is guaranteed.

Integrated permissions system

An individually customizable role system with a workflow that can be specifically defined allows for a simple or detailed permissions system that completely matches your needs.

Maximum transparency

The software tool SmartNotes contains a host of tools for achieving transparency, such as dashboard features, comparison and versioning functions, and even comprehensive reports.

Multilingual capability

SmartNotes helps you prepare multilingual reports but uses a shared base of numbers..

Print-ready layout

The Layout Robot module helps you to generate layouts that apply your corporate design in your reports and which are precise and consistent across media. A final layout step in InDesign therefore becomes unnecessary, heavily simplifying the creation of ready-to-print financial reports.
