Optimizing the Accounting Close and Financial Reporting

Less than 10% of companies rate their ability to continuously improve the accounting close as superior, yet over 70% consider this one of their top three priorities for the close. Why the discrepancy? Because the close is such a unique business process. Its constantly evolving nature and unique requirements limit the effects of standard process re-engineering. Instead, a total solution approach, focusing on continuous improvement, provides the best path to success.
