Best Practices for the Financial Close with Your SAP ERP
Even with a robust ERP like SAP in place, Controllers report spending nearly 70% of their time performing traditional tasks, such as closing the books or ensuring compliance with accounting standards. The opportunity to optimize your SAP ERP investment lies in implementing best practices by automating the Financial Close.
The case for automating the Financial Close for increased speed and accuracy is compelling. A 2022 Ventana Research study showed that 88% of companies that have automated most of the close process could finish within 6 business days.
