Setting alerts for your group
In 'Step 6: Alerts' for the consolidated group, you can set alert thresholds for certain KPIs. An alert threshold represents a critical level which may indicate that the consolidation is experiencing financial stress in a given area.
As an example, an alert may trigger when 'Accounts Receivable Days' exceed a specific result, or when the cash held by the business drops below a certain amount.
Each alert can either be turned ‘on’ or ‘off’. For those that are turned 'on', you can specify an alert threshold.
When an alert is triggered, a notification appears within the Fathom analysis tools and reports. Alerts are visible in the group’s KPI Analysis tools.
It is important to note that alerts in a consolidated group are not aggregated from the underlying companies, but rather are defined specifically against the consolidated group.
