Manual Journal Tasks Dominate The Accounting Period

Journal processing is one of the main activities within the period end close. Over 50% of close tasks are journal-related. Journals help keep the books in balance and financial statements compliant and accurate. But the burden of journal processing in the accounting cycle is immense and growing as finance professionals look beyond the general ledger for more varied sources of data and insight. Each sub-ledger or fresh source of data adds to journal complexity, much of which is paper-bound and manually intensive. Never has there been a greater need for journal entry to be automated.

52% of finance professionals believe they spend too much time on transaction processing; 42% say the same about management reporting and 32% spend too much time on statutory reporting

Frequently Asked Questions

How does automatic journal entry work?

Automatic journal entry software pulls data from underlying systems and adds that data to general ledger accounts without the need for human intervention. Pre-validation rules reduce the risk of rejected or incomplete items. Data is collated, transformed and reviewed if necessary before being automatically posted to ledgers. This makes it possible for accounting teams to process thousands of journals simultaneously. See what else you can achieve with Redwood.

What does journal entry software do?

Journal entry software is used to automate the creation, entry, management and approval of journals. Instead of relying on manual spreadsheets, journal entry (JE) software can retrieve and transform data from ERPs and business applications, handling liabilities, financial transactions, expense accounts and much more. JE tools also enforce controls, eliminating fraud while improving the accuracy of general ledgers and financial reports. See what else you can achieve with Redwood.
