Many companies struggle with outdated and inefficient monthly financial close processes. They typically encounter problems such as:
- Inadequate integration between billing and other financial/project systems resulting in billing inaccuracies, high dispute resolution cycle times and high DSO (Days Sales Outstanding)
- Inability to adequately monitor short-payments hindering the ability to automatically alert management to take proactive collection measures
- Inability to implement and analyze transactional activities in a centralized shared service setup resulting in loss of valuable business insights
There are several best practices which leading companies can implement to improve their monthly close process, such as:
- Basing business and operational analysis upon a single source (integrated data model) of financial and non-financial information.
- Storing all conciliation documentation in a central repository.
