Month End Close! It’s all about being in control!
Every month, the finance department ensures that various general ledger accounts, such as inventory, are reconciled and that the balances of suspense accounts are explained. Why is this process still mostly manual and so time consuming? Although errors in connecting accounts often arise from errors elsewhere in the supply chain within the company, they only come to light in the financial department. Insufficient control over parts of the total booking process ultimately lead to errors in the month-end closing.
Manual work causes delay and unnecessary errors
Errors are likely to be found in any matching process, be it journal entries posted to the wrong accounts, missing journal entries, errors to compensate for other errors and errors in transfers, reversals, allocations, etc. This results in a lot of manual activities that are additional to the work to be done already in the closing phase of the month. Combine that with increasing demands on finance and accounting to deliver more for less with fewer resources in less time, gives you the pressure cooker for stress.

However, it doesn’t have to be a painful process, there is a better way and every JD Edwards EnterpriseOne user can access it.
