CLOSE CHECKLIST THAT'S TRULY AUTOMATED

Redwood offers a cloud-based solution to close checklist management, and automation gives all finance stakeholders across the enterprise immediate visibility of issues, tasks and bottlenecks that need escalation and remediation. All close activities, such as reconciliations, journals and intercompany, are combined into a single automated environment. Every user in the process can collaborate more easily and resources can be deployed more efficiently, leading to productivity gains, cost savings, reduced cycle times and an accelerated close.
 
The solution enables finance to create a single repository of tasks connected to the close process, the underlying ERP, non ERP systems and the people responsible for managing the process.

ELIMINATE ENDLESS SPREADSHEETS

In many organizations, close checklist management is a primitive affair. Individual tasks are often recorded in standalone spreadsheets, developed by individuals to suit their specific role and needs. But these are sited out of the gaze of their finance colleagues and completely disconnected from the underlying monthly closing process they are responsible for.

AUTOMATE TASK EXECUTION IN UNDERLYING ERP AND NON-ERP SYSTEMS

Unlike generic process mapping, Redwood can actually do the work described in the process, making systems and application calls to the underlying ERP as appropriate. Examples include journal entries, automatic matching of intercompany balances and the creation of reports and alerts.

MONITOR REAL-TIME PROGRESS

Our powerful financial close checklist 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 be used to benchmark performanceacross the enterprise, facilitating post close reviews, thus encouraging continous process improvement to further accelerate the close.
