Keystone FX

Designed by GivenHansco in-house from the ground up, the recently launched Keystone FX allows ready-mix producers to pull vital data from the Keystone Accounting and Dispatch suite, and dynamically link data to Microsoft® Excel to create convenient, customized, and reliable reports.

This unique, industry specific financial reporting suite takes advantage of data from the user’s entire operation−combining all levels of data into Excel templates for flexible report productivity. Keystone FX is a simple, yet sophisticated tool for making customized financial statements and balance sheets.

In addition, FX simplifies the creation of reports on the whole Keystone suite including: general ledger, accounts payable, payroll, sales, and dispatch. Starting with pre-built templates, Keystone users simply hit the ‘Create Report’ button and reports are quickly created and opened in Excel. By leveraging in-house Excel expertise reports can be customized and extra features such as charts and pivot tables can be quickly added based on their desired parameters.

Ultimately, Keystone FX’s integrated reporting tools allow small-to-mid-size producers to compete with the bigger production players by giving them an easy way to run operational reporting with the type of comprehensive information usually leveraged by large corporations. Unlike other expensive and cumbersome tools, FX is cost-effective and offers a simple, user-friendly structure−automatically importing cross-platform data into no-hassle Excel spreadsheet templates to make convenient, custom reports.

Another essential feature of Keystone FX is that it exploits the unique NRMCA (National Ready Mixed Concrete Association) integration built into Keystone Financials to facilitate generation of the NRMCA survey report. Taking advantage of the NRMCA survey is the smart way for producers to track how their company compares to the industry.

Additionally, FX can provide Key Performance Index Reports that measure the productivity of individual plants. Tracking factors such as yards per hour, or sales quantity vs. budget quantity provides managers immediate and specific data for each plant.

Keystone FX is being touted as “The Streamlined Reporting Solution”. According to Craig Hanson, GivenHansco’s Vice President, “Our design platform was inspired by input from customers who were frustrated by the limitations and cost constraints of non-industry specific competing tools. The goal was to streamline the spreadsheet format to leverage Keystone’s comprehensive financial and operational data into a reliable, flexible, and hassle-free reporting platform.”
