Profitability and Cost Analysis in OneStream XF

Link Strategy to Operations

Data is always hard to track and different formulas are used by several departments. Structuring the allocation, making formulas visible, enables you to understand easily how the allocation is performed.

You often face a time consuming process to report allocated data, which is now streamlined in OneStream and after uploading the right data the allocation is done almost automatically. Okay, you still have to push the button.

Data often comes from multiple sources and could be adjusted on multiple places, which makes it hard to track changes and see where the data is coming from. Harmonizing the allocation model with drill down functionality enables you to track and trace data to the lowest level of details.

More accurate and transparent profitability insights

Profitability insights on a granular level is required to compare, analyze and make the right decisions to steer your business. Revenues and costs are allocated to a specific domain, which could be your products/services or areas. Making scenarios enables you to understand the impact on drivers as well.

Speed up the process by integration with financial reporting

The main benefits of using an allocation model in OneStream is the integration with the current financial reporting, which is already present in OneStream and speeds up the allocation process. With the allocation model in place, allocating revenues and costs are done with a push of the button.


Improve data quality with effective validations

Making use of the actuals already present in OneStream also avoids allocating incorrect older data. With the right validations in place you make sure that checks and balances are automatically performed. With the right tools you are able to review the outcome on the right level of details for analyses and comparison.
