Highlights and core functionality

A flexible, customizable general ledger? Yes, it’s true.

Unlimited financial calendars allow you to accommodate different fiscal year ends and other reporting requirements. Unlimited ledgers and basis reporting allow you to deliver financial information for regional regulatory requirements, management reporting requirements, consolidations, or other reporting needs. And unlimited dimension strings allow you to customize the information you track and report on for your organization, including non-financial data. It’s the general ledger you would design for yourself.

Get real-time visibility into payments and approval processes

Transition away from manual cash processing to lower cost, higher control automated cash application with CloudSuite Financials. You get comprehensive functionality for managing customer maintenance, cash processing, cash application, dispute resolution, and credit management.

Make manual processes a thing of the past

Establish a single close process across your entire organization and make manually maintained operational checklists a thing of the past. Built-in process flows for approvals and prebuilt dashboards by period, process, and sub-process increase efficiency and reduce errors, while the ability to easily slice and dice data helps you better support both routine reporting and executive decision making processes. Web-based information systems also mean that anyone with a need to know can access information any time from virtually anywhere.

You’ll be able to streamline labor intensive invoice processes with real-time visibility into vendor invoices and approval processes.

Easily monitor status, performance, and compliance metrics

Effectively manage, perform, and streamline account reconciliations by easily monitoring status, performance, and compliance metrics.
