Course Description

January is coming up soon, and for most corporate controllers and their teams, that means the age-old ritual of the year-end close. It’s a month of late nights, long weekends, endless copying and pasting between ERPs, sub-ledgers, and Excel spreadsheets—all just to close the books on the year.

But what if next year could be different? What if you had the financial consolidation, close, and reporting software you deserve? Join this demo webinar to see how to close early with confidence next year—or even next quarter.
Learning Objectives:

  • Determine how your peers handle consolidation, close, and reporting today

  • Identify the challenges of trying to close your books in your ERP system(s) and/or Excel spreadsheets

  • List the essential features to look for in a modern close management solution today

  • Evaluate a live demo of Fluence’s modern, purpose-built financial consolidation, close and reporting solution 

  • Give examples of results you can expect from modernizing your close process, from freeing up time to improving employee morale
