CLOSE CHECKLIST THAT'S TRULY AUTOMATED

Redwood’s cloud-based solution combines all close activities, such as reconciliations, journals and intercompany, into a single automated environment. It allows the creation of a single repository that connects all the tasks, underlying ERP and business systems and people involved in the process.

Finance stakeholders across the organization can now have immediate visibility of issues, tasks and bottlenecks that need escalation and remediation. Users can collaborate more easily and resources can be deployed more efficiently. This leads to productivity gains, cost savings, reduced cycle times and an accelerated close.

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.
