Enhance Reporting

Create different views of your data, or dimensions, using Acumatica subaccounts. With Acumatica subaccounts, nearly unlimited reporting dimensions are available to slice financial reports by product, department, or any user-defined segment. Consolidated and summarized data can be displayed in the monthly, yearly, and quarterly views.
