Finance ➔ Reports ➔ Pivot analysis


A financial pivot analysis is an interactive analysis summary, which enables you to visualize the actual financial information rapidly and effectively. You can present the data of your choice in the exact way you want, with several options for grouping and specifying the requested information. In addition to visualizing the data of a single administration, the function also allows you to compare financial details between different administrations. Based on these comparisons, you can generate an analysis report according to your preferences. You can also save the report template(s) of your choice for future reference.
