SAP BusinessObjects Intercompany
Intercompany reconciliation continues to pose the most significant and prevalent impediment to a fast and accurate accounting cycle. By placing the responsibility on corporate finance to check balances, correct errors, contact reporting units, this exercise can result in a vertical flow of information between headquarters and relevant reporting units – rather than a more efficient lateral flow of information between the reporting units involved in the original counterparty transaction.
By automating intercompany reconciliation, you remove it from the critical path of your company's primary financial reporting operation, eliminating the possibility that it can become a bottleneck. Improvements in your intercompany reconciliation processes can drastically reduce the overall amount of time it takes your business to accurately close its books.
Enhancing the Intercompany Reconciliation Process
The SAP BusinessObjects Intercompany application can enable business units to reconcile intercompany balances in real time via the Web, improving your ability to close faster. It provides the tools for business units to debate and reconcile balances directly with one another, eliminating extra work and delays at the corporate and divisional levels.
The software solution supplements the regular intercompany elimination capabilities of consolidation applications leading to a faster, more accurate close process. It is not tied to a single consolidation application – in fact, it works equally well with SAP and non-SAP applications.
With SAP BusinessObjects Intercompany, you can excel in the financial closing process by facilitating:
- Faster reporting cycles by providing tools that enable business units to resolve discrepancies earlier in the financial reporting process
- Greater productivity by freeing the finance department for more strategic activities, such as analyzing data and measuring and improving performance
