Automating the month end

This Finance and Management webinar took place on 30 October 2015.


Closing month end can be an arduous and time consuming process, involving a long check list of processes including downloads, cuts, pastes, a load of rekeying and a few ‘quick fixes’ too for those who make use of Excel to facilitate the process. You only need to have a couple of errors found on review to have to repeat much of the original work. Time invested in automating as much of this procedure as possible provides a great return in both team efficiency and accuracy.

This one hour webinar, delivered by John Tennent, will demonstrate a few essential functions of Excel and then show how they can be used to build a ‘bridge’ file between an accounting system and a management accounts pack, to truly enable you to automate much of your routine reporting.
