The Infinitus Reporting Team


RollupSheets has been used by the Astral Foods group of companies since the listing of Astral Foods Ltd on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in 2001.

Initially the program was used to consolidate monthly management accounts and for consolidation of the year-end statutory financial reporting.  It has since been expanded to report and consolidate group budgets, weekly profit reporting, annual strategic plan forecasts, internal control ratings and the consolidation of Income Tax returns.

An outstanding feature of the program is the ability to consolidate whatever data is, or can be imported in MS Excel format.  It offers a secure environment where the format of reporting can be controlled and updated from the centre. These features allowed Astral to employ the minimum resources at the head office for group reporting purposes.

Support from the RollupSheetsTeam was outstanding and very reliable from the initial implementation of the program, including installing upgrades and assistance in expanding it to other reporting structures.

I will not hesitate to recommend RollupSheets be considered as a solution where data had to be reported or consolidated to a central reporting office.
