Using Microgen Aptitude, RI can target growing regulatory and reporting requirements, centralise data, consolidate and meet senior managers needs for value added analysis, while supporting the company's long term strategy for financial data extraction, consolidation, processing and reporting.

The solution also enables us to support multiple accounting standards, standardise events and enable users to write from a single source for multiple and different targets rapidly."
