Is Your Period-End Closing Process Up to Par?

by

When Sage Intacct asked small to mid-size businesses what they would change about their close, the most common themes were to make it faster and easier. Recurring suggestions included more automation, integration, and better reporting.

There is a correlation between hours spent on closing the books and some accounting solutions used by respondents. If your close is taking too long or you’re adding entities, it may be time to re-evaluate how you’re using your current solution or investigate alternatives.

The Ericksen Krentel team of Client Accounting Services professionals provides a local, personalized and responsive service tailored to meet your business goals. Not only can we put together your weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly financial numbers, we can also interpret what they mean for the successful continuation of your enterprise.
