Automation of the Close Process

The close process is critical to a company’s efficiency and has a direct affect on the level of reporting risks and timely decision making.  Yet, many companies use a patchwork system to manage the close process. Excel spreadsheets are used to monitor tasks, emails are used to assign and approve reconciliations, journal entries and variance analysis, and documentation is stored in binders, files drawers, PC's and on shared drives. Typically, the close processes are manually intensive, time consuming and error prone. Clearview will assist you in implementing workflow tools to automate the management of close tasks using your predefined rules. The benefits of implementing these tools include increased productivity, reduced risk and audit costs, improved data accuracy and accelerated time to financial close. As a BlackLine Certified Implementation Partner, we can help ensure you get the most out of BlackLine System and improve both the quality and efficiency of your financial close.
