How Fast and Accurate is Your Financial Close Process?
Stuck with an old consolidation product
As knowledge of these legacy consolidation products disappears from your business, they become harder to support, introducing unacceptable risks into your close process. Financial consolidation is managed separately from financial planning, so it’s hard to maintain a single point of truth.
Outgrown static spreadsheets
Static spreadsheets are not enough, especially for auditors. Creating consolidated financial statements should not be a time-consuming, manual, and error-prone process.
Current solutions can’t adapt quickly enough
Existing rigid consolidation solutions struggle to adapt to the pace of business change and can’t support the needs of a growing business (more subsidiaries/legal entities). Integrating them into the group’s evolving ERP landscape is hard, resulting in time-consuming data import processes.
Support all financial consolidation needs of even the most complex groups
Prepare high-quality, audit-ready, consolidated financial statements for financial divisions, subsidiaries, and the group company. Work with proven, comprehensive, all-in-one consolidation software, which includes initial consolidation, deconsolidation, matrix consolidation, goodwill amortization, at-equity consideration, intercompany reconciliation, calculation of deferred taxes, late adjustments, and much more. Scale to support groups with less than 10 legal entities up to those with thousands.
Transform period-end with a fast, accurate five-day close
Reduce the time taken to prepare financial statements with automated consolidation and decentralization of the close process. Prepare management consolidations and legal consolidations in parallel, even in different consolidation currencies, with multi-dimensional roll-ups matching business units and your legal corporate structure.
Simplify compliance with built-in rules for regional and international accounting standards
Report consolidated financial statements using any international accounting standard, including IFRS, HGB, UGB, US GAAP, and Swiss GAAP FER. Meet all requirements for Country-by-Country Reporting (CbCR) required by regional tax authorities, including the German Federal Central Tax Office. Work with a solution that is trusted by over 1,100 customers and certified for auditing standards (IDW PS 880) by audit firm, BDO.
