REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- Host Analytics, the leader in cloud corporate performance management (CPM), today announced the availability of a free, new benchmark whitepaper focused on the financial closing process. The paper offers insight in to how to make the close process efficient, clean and faster.
Closing the corporate books is a core function of finance teams; yet many CFOs and controllers struggle with this task today. Others seek ways to provide finance departments with a more strategic role within the organization.
Prepared by industry analyst firm Ventana Research, the new whitepaper, titled "The Fast Close Imperative," discusses how the correlation between process design and execution, as well as using the right software, are the two most effective ways of accelerating the close process. Research found that many companies are taking longer to close the books these days because finance organizations have failed to automate the closing process and are using inappropriate software to manage it. Being able to close faster affirms the effectiveness of the CFO, the controller and the entire finance department, thus ultimately allowing the finance team to spend more time on higher value, more strategic activities.
