Reporting

Financial reporting isn't just about surfacing numbers.It's about the stories behind them.

Numbers do more than just fill spreadsheets—they paint pictures, tell stories, and reveal truths. But numbers alone aren't enough to deliver true understanding. Effective financial reporting must go beyond mere data presentation to provide the story, context, and logic in an understandable and accessible way.

Runway makes this possible by enabling you to build reports right where your models live. By adding text, creating visual charts, and incorporating other content, Runway helps you convey the true narrative behind the numbers—empowering your team to make decisions with clarity and confidence.

Create clarity with real-time insights

Traditional reporting often involves compiling data from various sources, resulting in reports that are outdated the moment they're presented. With Runway, your reports are always up-to-date, accurate, and ready to back your most critical financial decisions. Saving time is a given—what truly matters is creating clarity through real-time insights and clear, intuitive understanding.

Build interactive reports that drive understanding

Who needs a 67-page deck anymore? Prepare board updates and craft visually engaging dashboards with live charts, tables, and text in seconds. Make your reports dynamic, allowing viewers to experiment with plans, draft personal versions, and interact with models to better understand trade-offs. Runway enables you to foster true understanding through interactive reports. Because when you truly understand the data, you can make better decisions.

Present a holistic view to any audience

Effective communication drives success. Runway's granular access controls let you share reports with the right stakeholders, ensuring they see only the most relevant information—whether it's key company metrics or detailed departmental expenses. Customize access levels to provide full, edit, or view-only permissions, allowing each viewer to focus on the data that matters most to them.

In Runway, we have a link that anyone outside the finance team can use to check the metrics we're hyper-focused on. It's clean and real-time, and gets the attention back on the actual business. And that's what really matters—getting the business answers right, instead of wasting time building reports.
