Agile Financial Reporting
One Single Version of the Truth
Group Finance teams face increasing pressure for month end reporting to be delivered in shorter and shorter timescales. Financial numbers must be reliable and survive more thorough scrutiny from increasingly aggressive regulators and stakeholders. Board packs are becoming the size of small novels with Risk, KPI and other data being collated from spreadsheets and diverse systems. The need for a shorter time to close is exacerbated by increasing workload and the need to demonstrate thoroughness and proof of process in how numbers were derived.
Cloud CFO Management Accounts
Cloud CFO Management Accounts is a cloud based solution with a familiar Excel interface for group consolidation that sits on top of your existing accounting systems. Both flexible and configurable, Cloud CFO Management Accounts can be used for any number of hierarchies to produce familiar Primary Financial Statements to suit your reporting needs. A fast implementation and minimal learning curve allows you to produce reliable numbers quickly without changing any existing accounting or ERP systems.
Unify all entities
Each line from an entity’s TB is mapped to a group P&L and Balance Sheet, allowing for both uniform and disparate mappings and accounting systems.
Actuals can be imported with just a few clicks, along with budgets, forecast, KPIs and risks.
Financial information is imported in its functional currency and can be converted through a foreign exchange rate matrix.
Local management packs can be produced, reviewed and validated before being synced to the cloud.
Reports you can trust
All reports are fully defined in a simple, secure, structured format, removing the need for templates and linked workbooks.
Reports are created on the cloud server in seconds and downloaded directly to your desktop, always using the latest data to ensure a single version of the truth.
Multiple hierarchies including divisions and sub-divisions can be defined, along with ad-hoc aggregations when required.
Consolidation adjustments sit in separate elimination companies, and can include both automated rules and manual journals.
Multi-user audited access
Users log in through the Excel front end with a username and password over a secure HTTPS connection to the Oracle database sitting on the Amazon cloud.
Access, either read only or read/write, is granted at an entity, divisional or group level and the workbook is populated with the appropriate user data.
All user actions are logged and the audit trail can be retrieved via a right click.
Scale and flex with your needs
Any changes to report definitions and company hierarchy is easily completed via the admin form.
Changes are synced and everyone immediately sees the latest version- no need to roll out new templates!
Users can be created and assigned access to any part of the hierarchy in seconds.
