For many organizations, the Standard Cost Update process has always been fraught with delays & longer reporting timescales. While finance teams spend significant time on the updating process, they are unable to focus on important tasks and high-value work that will drive the business forward and deliver results.

The Standard Cost update process executed every year typically involves annual update of Standard and current costs on QAD in order to avoid massive manual work performed on 1st of January every year. Depending on the size and complexity of the company, this repetitive process has to be executed at the end of each year for every Database/Domain/Entity.
