    Ben, think you’re being a little pernickety ob the details here here – the reality is most people who don’t have personal access to accounting systems (either because they’re installed on a single PC or are too complex to learn) are foreced to review business information in a manner that is out of sync with the real time data and state of the business.

    Most commonly, in fact, on either paper management reports which can be days old, or on spreadsheets which also suffer the same fate.

    I think this is what Hamish is getting at.
