How to shorten your checklist with automation?

It’s year-end.

At 8:00 pm, you find yourself reconciling cash once again. You are chasing down a handful of bank balances and transaction details. You exhale deeply as you go through the tired motions: going to each bank portal, downloading .csv files, and parsing records in Excel.

To make matters worse, this is just the reconciliation and flux analysis part. You still have to go through post-closing reporting and decipher the report on underlying changes in cash across the business as you dig into Actuals to Plan comparisons.

Even with just one bank, this process is a headache…Oh, you have THREE banks? Say goodbye to your 8+ hours of sleep — this is going to be another looooong night.

Better start ordering pizza…and maybe a few shots of espresso.

Now imagine…

* poof  *

All the tedious, manual calculations on your year-end close checklist disappear into thin air.
