        Buyers Guides for Financial Consolidation and Close

        2024 Software Provider and Product Assessment

        The financial records of an enterprise must be periodically reviewed and summarized to create financial statements that inform executives and interested third parties of the organization’s financial condition and performance. An enterprise’s financial close involves a set of repeated processes that must be performed in a prescribed order and fashion to maximize productivity while ensuring absolute accuracy. Enterprise software enables finance and accounting departments to be more productive throughout the close by automating calculations, coordinating the execution of processes and facilitating communication among participants. The desire to make the department more productive and resilient has led to increased investment in technology to assist in performing the full consolidate and close cycle.
