Integrating automation to enable speed and efficiency
“We needed to eliminate human error and automate our processes of entering and accessing data and performing quantitative analysis,” says Phillip Desalvo, Partnership Transaction Group M&A Tax Principal at KPMG. “In some instances, it took 30 minutes for Excel to re-calculate a detailed, formulaically complicated workbook, and overall, we just needed something that could give us better transparency in our data.”
“When we discovered Alteryx, the main thing that stuck out was the speed at which calculations were performed, and the reduced risk of human error,” says Kevin Casady, Partnership Transaction Group Managing Director in M&A Tax at KPMG. “Because we work with such large volumes of data, it is easier to ensure that user errors are eliminated in the underlying computations.
“We’ve fully automated our process of entering and accessing client data, making it easier for our teams to dedicate their time to gaining insights from the data.”
