If you have ever had to compare a fairly large amount of numbers that just won't tie to another set of numbers, then you will understand why this is important. It is a major undertaking if there are many numbers. Sometimes it even requires two people. One person will read the numbers and the other will check the list. An enormous percentage of time is spent finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
This product will make it much much much easier. It is so easy to use that even if you have just ten numbers you need to compare against another set of ten numbers, you'll be tempted to use it. Another reason to use this is because we now are looking at other types of data. It used to be that we only cared about making sure the totals tied out. Now we have so much software that we need to look at dates and other numbers that don't get totaled, like check numbers. Reconciliation on Fire also looks for inconsistencies in dates and check numbers. It even compares purely textual data like names. So if you have a list of names that may not have the same consistent spelling, then Reconciliation on Fire will also find those inconsistencies.
