# How is it all possible?

Deciphering corporate reports has always been a painstaking task. Every report challenges the analyst with information presentation, and numbers, assumptions, and formulas scattered throughout the document, which can vary from quarter to quarter and year to year for every company. And that’s before thinking about formatting, styles and corporate phraseology, which will vary from year to year, project to project, and executive to executive.

Exerica has found a way around this information chaos. It starts with structuring numerical data in tables in a specific way which takes account of the mathematical relationships between numbers. Once every number is put “in relation to” other numbers, linking all data across the report becomes much simpler.

This means Exerica extracts the full accounting structure from a company report – a solution that no one has managed to do until now. What Exerica sees is not a miasma of words and numbers but the original hierarchical structure of a company’s accounts.

The resulting data structure can then be accurately linked with like structures from any other financial report – from one company across time, to a range of companies in a market sector. Every item can be matched against the same data in other reports with exactly the same analytical and accounting meaning.
