Taking On the Complexity of the Financial Close


Well, hopefully the year-end close process is complete for most companies who have a December 31st fiscal year-end.  Of course, there’s still plenty of work ahead on financial and regulatory reporting, right?

We know that the financial close cycle is a challenge for many organizations.  The financial close and consolidation process impacts Finance staff in many departments and locations, requires pulling data from multiple systems, and can consume an enormous amount of time and resources.  This is especially true if an organization is reliant on spreadsheets, email, and manually-intensive processes, or legacy applications that the company has outgrown.   And there are a number of complexities to the process. 

  • Consolidating data from multiple systems
  • Operating in multiple currencies
  • Reporting using US GAAP and IFRS
  • Reconciling and eliminating complex inter-company transactions
  • Reporting on minority-owned companies

Join us on January 31 for our webinar featuring Brad Tingey, Corporate Controller at Golden State Foods to learn how they are using Host Analytics’ cloud-based Consolidation solution to address their complex financial close and reporting process in a global enterprise.
