Benefits of Sage Intacct Dashboards for Entertainment Companies


Entertainment companies share some of the same financial reporting needs as companies in other sectors, but they also have unique needs that are addressed by Sage Intacct’s cloud accounting solution.

Specifically, Sage Intacct’s financial dashboards offer advanced features that can help entertainment companies improve their financial reporting and gain real-time insights that support better decision-making.

Controlled access

Because Sage Intacct dashboard components and data filtering are based on user permissions, companies can tailor dashboard content to meet the needs and permissions of different users, or roles. 

For example, a producer’s dashboard might display a high-level summary of the production projects the producer is responsible for, including details such as:

  • Key performance cards that highlight project-specific revenue, cost, and receivables
  • Statistical data related to current progress by team member 
  • Illumination of at-risk projects

As a cloud-based ERP solution, Sage Intacct provides secure, anytime access from any device, which frees producers and others to work from home and on the road.

Drilldown capabilities

Sage Intacct dashboards feature dynamic charts and graphs to help users visualize critical information and drill down as needed to underlying transaction details. Users are empowered to drill down on an unlimited number of dimensions based on the company’s needs and nomenclature. 

For example, an entertainment company could drill down by dimensions including:

  • Producer
  • Director
  • Genre
  • Title
  • Season 
  • Episode

Through Sage Intacct’s personalized, role-specific dashboards, entertainment companies can access the real-time data they need to deepen business insights and make better decisions.

Customizable dashboards 

Using Sage Intacct’s real-time, customizable dashboards, CFOs can monitor the financial health of their companies and gain strategic insights for planning and growth. 

The dashboards provide key metrics including revenue, expenditures, and gross margin, and they can be tailored to show snapshots of different aspects of the business, including:

  • Performance cards
  • Reports
  • Charts
  • Calendars
  • Shortcut links
  • Lists

Sage Intacct dashboards also can help companies meet industry-standard reporting requirements like AICP’s cost summary report.
