Essential features of an efficient production accounting system

Traditional production accounting systems are frequently a source of business inefficiencies. Increased expense, lost time, lost opportunities, and delays in availability of data for senior management are a few common issues we’ve seen over the years. 
 
Switching to a modern production accounting can reduce these inefficiencies and increase business performance. For example, effective management of deferments can mean a significant increase in revenue for a production company.  

When looking to increase efficiencies within your business, here’s a list of some of the key features that your production accounting software should be providing. 

Configurability 
Your system should be 100% configurable. All without needing to programme calculations or functionality directly into the software. You should be able to build an application to suit your assets and agreements, and update and modify this as your operation evolves. 

Transparency 
There should be no frustrating data black boxes. In EnergySys, downloadable Excel calculation logs make it easier than ever to identify and fix anomalies. A complete audit trail and version history should be readily available whenever you need it. 

Upgrades 
Upgrades should be included without additional chargeUpgrades should be regular and not interrupt your normal operationYou should be able to log-on and use your applications as before, but with improved functionality. 

Open Reporting 
You should be able to build powerful and useful ad hoc reports and dashboards. Open data standards are critical. They mean that your reporting is more flexible, offers more effective data sharing, and more choice. You should be able to work in your choice of reporting environment using your own templates. Analytics shouldn’t be a costly add-on; it should be open data combined with your preferred tool. 

Visibility 
You must be able to access information quickly and easily. It should be available anytime from anywhere in the world. 

Auditability 
Every change should be recorded, versioned, and traceable back to an identified individual or process.
