Global life insurance and pensions giant Aegon has implemented the SkyReport business intelligence and testing solution from SkySparc to enhance reporting from its Wallstreet Suite treasury system.
To meet all its reporting needs, it previously had to supplement direct reports from Wallstreet Suite with others compiled manually in spreadsheets using data from multiple in-house systems. Now Aegon can benefit from automated report compilation using data from all Wallstreet Suite modules and other systems. The solution uses Excel as its presentation layer, providing a good user experience for analysis and presentation.
“By using SkyReport’s automated system we can produce reports at the touch of a button. Our efficiency has improved as all the information can be quickly collected in Excel, practically eradicating instances of human error,” said Marcel Reuser, Aegon group treasury operations support.
