Live package reconciliation & Live currency conversion to streamline the I/C process

 

In SAP BusinessObjects Financial Consolidation 10.1 SP03, two new features are available to help you streamline the intercompany reconciliation process. The Live package reconciliation has been developed to check the completeness and accuracy of intercompany positions in a package. There is no need anymore for running a specific reconciliation process to see the I/C counterpart information. Data entered by the partner are now directly visible within a package. In addition, the Live package currency conversion feature enables the end-user to convert package amounts into a chosen currency directly within the package, which was not possible previously. The illustration below shows how Dynamic package reconciliation / currency conversion are used in a package to display all counterparts in the partner local currency as well as converted in the entity currency.

Other SAP BusinessObjects Financial Consolidation 10.1 SP03 key new features

 

  • A new User Management feature is available to grant different sets of rights to the same user for multiple entities; this new function is the outcome of a Customer Connection Program with our main user groups
  • Our archiving tool is enhanced with SAP HANA multi-temperature archiving of consolidated data. Due to information life cycle management, customers often apply multi-temperature strategies, whereby data is classified by access frequency as either hot, warm or cold. Depending on this classification and data usage, this data is stored in different memory areas. In SP03 our archiving tool is able to automate the move of data from Hot to Warm, helping you to reduce TCO.
