There are many situations when it’s difficult to design operational transactions (sales invoices, purchase order receipts, work order completions, etc.) in software systems to provide sufficient accounting and reporting detail within the G/L. This leads to problems with G/L account variance analysis from disconnects between operational and financial results, as well as additional costs for business intelligence tools to correct these issues, just to name a few. Advanced Cost Accounting and Flex Accounting were created to provide users greater flexibility in how they recorded the accounting information associated with their source transactions. Join us as we discuss the functionality available and review a few examples of how this solution can benefit all companies.
