When you are under pressure to close your books faster and complete your financial reporting sooner, it is important to know where you are in the close process, through comprehensive close management with centralized accounting and integrated subledgers, intuitive dashboards, and a collaborative close process.
The close manager automatically identifies which subledgers have not closed. With a visual representation of the close process across the entire organization, including a hierarchy viewer that illustrates the dependency of the close on related subsidiaries, you have complete visibility and centralized control.
Accounting automation streamlines and automates end-to-end accounting and transaction processes without user intervention, including daily rates import, accounting creation, journal import, and journal posting. Users are notified of any exceptions and provided with the information to resolve them.
Intelligent real-time monitoring indicates changes in account balances. The account monitor compares current information against a target or baseline, such as budget or results from a prior period, to identify and manage anomalies.
The unique reporting platform built on a multi-dimensional data model maintains summarized balances in real-time making reporting and analysis extremely fast. Visualization tools provide a graphical representation of the account balances, making it easy to analyze financial data and clearly see where there are issues, to make effective business decisions.
Integrated imaging capabilities speed up invoice entry, minimize errors and reduce invoice processing costs, eliminating the need for costly third-party solutions. Supplier invoices can be scanned with intelligent document recognition and automatically completed, validated, approved, and paid with no user intervention. An interactive viewer allows you to resolve issues and train the machine learning algorithm.
Real-time alerts are embedded into the invoices work area to proactively monitor processes, track the status of transactions and draw attention to issues and exceptions that may require a response. Relevant transactions are displayed on the same page so that action can be taken immediately. Single click actions such as approve or release hold increase productivity when performing simple tasks.
Streamline daily customer activities by pinpointing issues with billing or accounts receivable, improving control by highlighting transactions that require attention directly in the work area. An electronic bill presentment solution extends the footprint of Oracle Financials to your own customers, reducing the cost of billing and collections while improving overall customer service through a self-service solution for customers to manage their own accounts.
Credit management provides the information and tools to monitor and evaluate the creditworthiness of customers and make informed credit decisions, by tailoring credit policies to business needs and market conditions.
Address revenue as defined in the ASC 606 and IFRS 15 accounting standard for Revenue from Contracts with Customers, using a centralized, automated solution. Revenue management provides a configurable framework to automate the identification and creation of customer contracts and performance obligations, their valuations and resulting accounting entries, and the ability to recognize the revenue over time or at a point in time. It helps you automate the ASC 606 and IFRS 15 processes, increasing productivity, and reducing risk of error.
Advanced collection strategies based on customer scoring automatically apply a series of tasks to help ensure timely collections from overdue customers. These tasks can be customized to improve the collection experience for both customers and collections agents, resulting in higher recovery rates of outstanding receivables. Collections metrics such as DSO and broken promise count evaluate the collections process using industry standard formulas, allowing organizations to better understand the health of their outstanding receivables, the efficiency of their collections organization and potential problem areas to apply more collections resources or alter collections strategies.
Cash management offers a solution for managing bank account activity and controlling cash positions. Quickly analyze cash positions and forecast cash requirements through configurable dashboards, work areas and reports, ensuring liquidity and optimal use of cash resources.
The assets work area streamlines asset lifecycle operations and manages transaction and period close activities for asset books. Accounting standards such as IFRS 16 and ASC 842 for lease accounting are addressed through a comprehensive offering for standardizing corporate lease policies, improving internal controls, and meeting lease obligations.
A robust, global architecture including tax, payment and accounting engines to meet a broad range of business needs, enables customers to configure features to meet individual country or business requirements. It includes complete internationalization support, including number, date, name and address formatting, and is translated into 26 languages.
Scalable enterprise structures allow large enterprises to model their business, supporting unlimited accounting representations and statutory reporting needs in a single global solution using standard preferences and setup, allowing global customers to adapt their software for a specific region or country without requiring multiple implementations of the product. Country-specific localizations such as payment formats and accounting or tax reports are also available to meet local business requirements.
Budgetary control and encumbrance accounting allow organizations to control spending by checking and reserving funds during transaction entry. A budget monitor allows budget managers to monitor consumption rates and review accounts that are close to overspending their budget, with dynamic drilldown to quickly view the transactions that contribute to the budget balances. For extended planning and budgeting, general ledger data can be seamlessly and automatically integrated with Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Performance Management.
Joint venture management provides a solution for managing the terms and conditions for your joint ventures while leveraging rules-based, automatic processes to accurately create joint venture distributions for each partner. Native integrations to receivables and project management enable optimized partner billing and accurate project capitalization, gross to net reporting and asset creation. Drive increased productivity via streamlined means for researching and resolving partner questions and disputes.
Extensive spreadsheet integration across multiple finance functions allows finance users to work in their preferred environment. Spreadsheets are seamlessly integrated for high volume data entry and one-click uploads.
