Help companies run their financial close-to-disclose process better
The latest Thought Leadership Paper from SAP enterprise performance management (EPM) explains how our suite of software help enterprises automate their financial close-to-disclose process. SAP is combining decades of business process expertise with an unprecedented ability to deliver “innovation without disruption” in order to help you run your business better by simplifying, automating and streamlining your financial performance management activities. The paper begins with a recent survey showing that improving the “last mile of finance” ranks among CFOs top-two targets. The authors then describe the main CFO difficulties when running this process, and how SAP suite of software can help: connect systems of record (ERP) with systems of engagement (EPM), comply with IFRS, U.S. GAAP and XBRL, benefit from an “anywhere – anytime” insight on financial results on mobile, secure the external filing to regulators and investors and go live in weeks, not months.
