Finance and operational planning, closing the books and reporting are common tasks that most businesses perform. However, a common issue between the operation teams and the finance team is getting current operations information and gathering financial data.  Reconciling data, verifying data and analyzing operational data for the finance team is a time consuming and error prone process.  Often using spreadsheets to aggregate data or using financial planning solutions that do not give the company visibility to current and accurate operational data.  Once data is available for financial reporting and financial budgeting and planning key information is delayed or may be missing for key decision making and growth opportunities.

NetSuite Enterprise Resource Planning plus NetSuite Enterprise Management resolve the business operational and finance visibility and connectivity issue.  NetSuite ERP provides the tools for your business to run operations efficiently and transparently. NetSuite EPM provides the seamless integration with NetSuite ERP for accurate operation data and a set of solutions that connects planning, budgeting, forecasting, account reconciliation, financial close, and reporting processes from across the entire organization to help increase business visibility, enhance decision-making, and drive growth.

  • Account Reconciliation: Streamlines and automates the reconciliation process for accounts payable, accounts receivable, bank and credit card transactions, prepaid accounts, accruals and fixed asset accounts, intercompany transactions, and other balance sheet accounts. Launched in July 2023, it helps accounting teams increase the accuracy and speed of the entire close process by automating the complex and time-consuming tasks involved in aggregating financial data from various sources.
