Essential Close Automation for CXO

Automation is your key to success in Finance and this includes your close. Anyone who has been through a close knows a clunky one is painful, and it arrives routinely whether you are prepared or not.

A recent survey by Hanover Research found that a staggering 49% of Finance professionals felt unable to execute their tasks completely because their current manual processes were too time consuming. And those manual processes impacted their ability to execute essential tasks efficiently and effectively. This meant missed deadlines, time spent on menial tasks and the headache of versioning which led to the loss of the integrity of the data.

With CXO, transforming your lacklustre EPM reporting into dynamic c-level insights, you’ll be able to add the same efficiency and automation to your close process.

Making Financial Close Work for You

Financial close is a major necessity of any company’s process, but done right, it has potential to add value to all areas of your company. The traditional financial close will verify and adjust account balances at period end to produce reports representative of a company’s true financial position to inform management, investors, lenders, and regulatory agencies. And using data collected during a close to make smart company decisions outside of finance is an emerging expectation for the Office of the CFO.

A well done financial close can help you:

Report on current and historical financial positions.
Show your company’s financial viability. ​
Make sound investment decisions​.
Meet the legal requirement and conform to standards.
Use your data to intelligently aid reporting outside of traditional financial reporting.
