Introducing Patterns for Finance Teams

June 25, 2024

Finance teams are expected to provide strategic insights and drive data-driven decision-making, but often lack the technical skills or resources to do so effectively.

With vast amounts of financial data and significant money at stake, there is a tremendous opportunity to streamline financial operations, reporting, and push insights that can make a meaningful impact on the bottom line. Unfortunately, many finance teams struggle with complex data scattered across multiple systems, such as ERP platforms like NetSuite, CRM software like Salesforce, payment processors like Stripe, and banking solutions like Brex. This is particularly evident during month-end close processes and when reporting financials to stakeholders such as investors or partners.

Patterns is designed to bridge this gap and empower analytical accounting and finance professionals to unlock the full potential of their data. Our AI-powered financial analyst, converts natural language questions into database queries, making it easy for anyone to get answers to financial questions about the company. With Patterns, finance teams can:

  • Efficiently navigate through complex financial data during month-end close processes

  • Generate accurate and timely reports for stakeholders and partners such as AP/AR aging, reconciliation

  • Provide a user-friendly "reporting interface" for non-technical users to access financial insights

  • Identify opportunities to optimize financial performance and drive bottom-line growth

  • Even drafting management commentary on financials

Our autonomous agents leverage advanced planning, reasoning, and reflection capabilities to simulate the meta-cognition of a skilled financial analyst. With Patterns, finance teams can quickly access the insights they need to drive strategic initiatives, such as:

  • Demand forecasting and inventory management

  • Customer churn analysis and revenue optimization

  • Budgeting, expense management, and cost-saving opportunities

  • Financial reporting and analysis

Patterns Agents operate at a level above text-to-SQL tools. Our agents are autonomous and equipped to handle the complexity of multi-step analyses that are commonly found in the financial sector. They can:

  • Understand and clarify questions, ensuring the request is answerable given the data and capabilities available.

  • Plan and execute multi-step financial analyses with strategic plans involving multiple data queries.

  • Generate optimized SQL queries, iterating and correcting any errors or empty results to guarantee reliable outputs.

  • Evaluate and cross-check results against prior financial reports and data to maintain consistency and identify any discrepancies or anomalies.

  • Create interactive visualizations such as cash flow waterfalls, revenue dashboards, and expense breakdowns.

  • Deliver actionable financial insights by interpreting and analyzing query results and charts such as identifying cost-saving opportunities or highlighting areas for revenue growth.

  • Generate comprehensive financial reports by compiling multiple queries, charts, and derived insights into a final, presentation-ready report, streamlining the communication of financial information to executives, investors, and other stakeholders.

By leveraging the power of autonomous agents, Patterns enables finance teams to access sophisticated financial analytics without the need for extensive technical knowledge or SQL skills.
