Finance team in corporate setting discusses financial close solutions and selects OneStream

There’s Only One Financial Close Solution to Consider in 2022

The financial close is one of the more complicated aspects of fiscal activity within corporations. It requires the full cooperation of Finance as well as input from business units across the enterprise to coordinate the closure of a financial period each month, quarter, or year.

Without the right software solution in place, organizations are vulnerable to mistakes, errors, and other challenges that could slow down their financial close process.

That’s why we recommend migrating to the leading financial close solution on the market today, the OneStream intelligent finance platform.OneStream breaks down the complexity of the financial close and streamlines processes, enabling Finance to lead at speed.

Those looking for third-party confirmation of OneStream’s efficacy as a leading financial close solution need only turn to one of the top research companies in the world. According to the latest Gartner Financial Close Solutions Review, OneStream has separated itself as a flexible, cost-efficient, long-term platform that supports the latest needs of organizations.

We back this sentiment. HollandParker has committed 100% of our resources to implementing the OneStream platform for organizations. As a Diamond Implementation Partner, we have built a robust team that enables us to deliver superior OneStream implementation services. Let us further explain why OneStream is the solution your organization needs to support the financial close in today’s business environment.

A Key Factor When Evaluating Financial Close Solutions

Migrating to a modern, reliable solution such as OneStream takes on greater importance when you consider the full weight of regulatory requirements in today’s globally connected business environment.

Executing a proper financial close is critical at the corporate level due to the standards in place from regulatory bodies such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), and International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).

These organizations provide best practice recommendations such as the generally accepted accounting principles (GAAPs) or International Financial Reporting Standards (IRFS) to ensure that corporations are truthful about their financial position.

For large organizations that have global subsidiaries, this process of complying with oversight and regulatory bodies can become cumbersome without the proper solution.

Tracking down data, communicating across time zones, and ensuring proper intercompany eliminations across different global business units necessitates a more robust financial close solution. OneStream provides the answer.
