ELIMINATE INEFFICENT SPREADSHEETS
Managing the hundreds of interdependent period-end activities remains a primitive affair for many organizations. Individual tasks are often recorded in standalone and disconnected spreadsheets. These spreadsheets don’t provide a full audit trail of your close, don’t support collaboration and communication between geographically dispersed teams, and are unable to manage task sequence and dependencies.
Redwood’s finance automation solution provides the real-time visibility and transparency to manage your close through a role-based dashboard and orchestration of the handoffs and handovers between humans and automated task steps.

EXECUTE TASKS AUTOMATICALLY IN UNDERLYING ERP AND BUSINESS SYSTEMS
Unlike generic process mapping, Redwood’s finance automation solution actually executes the work described in the process, making systems and application calls to the underlying ERP and other business systems as appropriate. This includes tasks such as journal entries, automatic matching of intercompany balances and the creation of reports and alerts.
MONITOR PROGRESS IN REAL TIME
Our powerful financial close checklist solution gives complete real-time visibility across the close. It allows finance professionals to view tasks that haven’t been started or completed, and to review bottlenecks by task, individual, cost center and entity. This information can help benchmark performance across the organization and encourage continuous process improvement to further accelerate the close.
