Four problems in managing professional sports clubs: Just like in general companies, professional sports club management has many back-office issues. Here, we will introduce four specific common problems. ① It takes time to compile report materials for internal and external use. It takes a considerable amount of time to compile these reporting materials, such as results from accounting systems and progress from sales management tools. ② Calculating allocation for each department is time-consuming: Calculating actual sales and expense data based on the allocation rate and allocating it to each department takes a considerable amount of time and effort. ③ It takes time every year to create a plan for the next year: I would like to create a plan for the next year based on top-down monetary instructions, but it takes many months from the time the plan comes up to the time it is finalized. I want to be more efficient. ④It takes time and effort to report to the league each time: When reporting to the league, the subjects for your own club and the subjects to be reported are different, so it takes time and effort to compile the subjects every time. ``Management accounting systemization'' can solve these problems!
By systematizing management accounting, you can solve the following problems: For example, tasks that require separate re-input and calculations, such as external data linkage and allocation rate calculations, become easier! ① Semi-automating data linkage from external systems: By systematizing it, you can semi-automate data linkage with your current sales management tools and accounting tools! By pre-mapping, you can improve the efficiency of your work and dramatically reduce the time it takes to compile tedious data! ② Easily calculate allocations for each department by setting them in advance: For example, when tickets are sold by another department, or when internal sales and expenses occur. If you systemize it, you can set the allocation ratio for each department in advance, and after importing the results, you can automatically allocate it to each department! ③ Easily plan for the next year based on the previous year's results: If you systemize it, you can quickly plan for the next year based on the previous year's results! With this system, you can instantly create a budget for each department based on a rough estimate by simply specifying the amount of income and expenditure (or growth rate) you want to aim for! ④ Easy league reporting with subject mapping settings: No problem even if the subjects managed by your company are different from the league reporting subjects! Once systemized, by mapping in-house managed subjects and league reportable subjects in advance on the master, you can download report materials with a single button!
