Type:  White Paper
Length:  8 pages

Weeks of effort go into closing, consolidating, preparing, executing and adjusting final numbers and narratives to report on any given financial period.  Most companies use unconnected spreadsheets, emails, and word processing documents to conduct the extended close cycle, from closing their books to filing their reports.

This paper reviews the processes involved in a company’s extended financial close process, the problems associated with a manual effort, and the benefits of using an integrated and automated single-platform solution for Financial Close Management (FCM).
