Despite significant effort and expense, the typical Group Finance department still faces many of the same challenges when it comes to financial close as they did 30 years ago. Organizations use different tools for their accounting and reporting, which results in non-value-added reconciliation processes and leaves substantial room for error. When the CFO office requires financial insights, they are held back by the clear separation of the operational data (ERP) and analytical data (consolidation tools) – allowing them to only understand the topside adjustment and trust the operational closing has been done according to policy.

In the same period software vendors have been making promises to solve these problems with new integrated solutions but in most cases they couldn´t deliver as it all required a separation of data storage – illustrated by some kind of data upload or input mechanism needed. Is SAP S/4HANA for Group Reporting the answer?


Capacent and SAP Sweden are happy to invite you to an SAP S/4HANA Group Reporting briefing. We have organized an inter-active virtual event, featuring speakers from both Capacent and SAP, where you see the new S/4HANA solution for consolidation, which uses the ´Universal Journal´ concept to have a single source of truth for financial and management accounting data. In reality – consolidation is built directly on the ERP data – allowing you to have complete transparency from entity to corporate close.
