Financial Close

Communicating performance and financial indicators to your internal and external stakeholders is a recurring task that requires a significant amount of time, attention and endurance to complete. Performance Management software was created to build repeatable processes which shorten the time frame to derive the consolidated numbers and to provide operational insights into the various areas of your organization.

Still the pressure on accounting, finance and admin teams is often enormous due to the remaining manual effort and the complexity of the systems. Financial data is entered by the operational departments, transformed by Finance and Accounting teams and enhanced with additional information. With changing organizational structures and financial models, much needed transparency becomes harder to establish and sustain/retain. An efficient Financial Close system will be able to answer questions on both quantity and quality of data within a very short amount of time and supports its users in efficient ways.
