  Dream Catcher

Dream Catcher is a powerful multi-currency, multi-version Management Reporting and Performance Measurement Tool.

Journal’s and consolidation entries which exist above the Transactional Accounting System may be directly posted from within Microsoft Excel.

Accurate Up to Date Information

The information is drawn directly from the Dream Catcher Data Store, allowing for real-time reporting of all information stored.

Shortened Submission Cycles

Through the use of standard Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, submissions to and from remote locations can simply be emailed and updated within Microsoft Excel environment.


Consolidations and Scenarios

Two separate consolidation paradigms allow you to quickly consolidate and generate company and group wide information drawn from multiple sources or locations into a single source information environment. The simplest consolidation model provides a straight-forward Company/Group aggregate consolidation.


For more complex environments the Consolidation Wizard allows structures and scenarios to be quickly created or updated in a simple drag-and-drop interface, allowing the creation of multiple consolidation structures based on the same core information.

Having consolidations generated from these two sources removes the frustration of cumbersome Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, with multiple linked schedules for the generation of Consolidated Financial Information.

Multiple Auditable Transaction Types

Transactions updated into the Dream Catcher Management System can be carried out in Year-to-Date and Month-to-Date values or simply as transactions, with all transactions generating a detailed audit trial.


Transaction Histories are stored for all updates to the database, allowing users to view the Transaction History of changes to information

Central Repository

By acting as a central repository for financial and operational information and metrics Dream Catcher provides a single window into the operational and financial “truths” of your business. Information can be shared, validated and reported on from a single source, thus reducing the doubt and frustration caused by multiple source and ad hoc reporting.



Information is secured within the Microsoft SQL Server security environment, coupled with Dream Catcher Application layer security ensures that Users can only interact with information to which they have rights.
