Accounting & Financial Solutions

Accounting and Financial software applications are arguably the core of most business systems. Accounting systems primarily deal with capturing, entering, recording, tracking and managing the money aspect of the business operations. When any business event with monetary value occurs such as taking an order, selling a product, receiving a payment, paying an invoice and others, the accounting system is responsible for recording the transaction according to the defined chart of accounts and business processes. Accounting solutions typically include General Ledger (GL), Accounts Receivable (AR), Accounts Payable (AP), Journals, Payroll, and other bookkeeping functions. Financial systems expand the scope of accounting systems to typically include financial reporting, cash and treasury management, fixed assets, expense management, tax and regulatory filings, financial analysis, budgeting and overall financial management functions.
