Extensive tables (for example, exports from SAP) are part of everyday work in many organizations. The challenge regularly arises that this data has to be checked or supplemented by various departments or employees.
The data sheet function provides valuable support here. Datasheets can be integrated into Impero controls. Therefore, all standard features of an Impero control are available, such as precise scheduling and assignment to different employees, and extensive reporting.
The data sheet function allows you to import data from Excel (structure specifications) and to define response fields or response columns (inputs). For each control, the data are sent to employees throughout the organization so that they can check or add to the existing data. All information collected can be analyzed and, if necessary, exported back to Excel.
A data sheet is always part of a control program, and it can be used by one or more controls within the control program.
Our customers use the data sheet in a variety of ways and creatively. Examples? A customer uses the data sheet function to regularly check whether existing IT access rights are still up-to-date or need to be adjusted. In addition, we often see implementation of reporting requirements in the tax area, in particular DAC 6 reporting and country by country reporting. The data sheet is also ideally suited for querying key figures for the purposes of environmental, social, governance (ESG) reporting (see figure).
In essence, it remains the same: Tables are checked or supplemented by many people in different places – and all of this in a compact and easy-to-use environment with extensive options for tracking the implementation and creating reports.
