Oracle Hyperion Financial Close Management includes two modules: Close Manager and Account Reconciliation Manager.
Close Manager is a task management solution. Tasks are anything that needs to be done during the close process – whether in the transaction system, general ledger, consolidation system or reporting system. Users are assigned to each task and the tasks are given a due date relative to each period end date. This makes it easy to identify bottlenecks in the process using pre-built, web-based dashboards for monitoring the progress of the financial close. Calendar views, task list views, and Gantt views are used for each user’s tasks and active calendars and task lists allow users to launch applications and complete tasks from the calendar itself. A roll-forward feature allows for quick set up of new financial close calendars based on the prior financial close.
Account Reconciliation Manager is a module dedicated to the management of account reconciliations. This helps companies reduce risk by providing real-time visibility into the performance of reconciliations and ensuring that all reconciliations prepared are properly qualified. This also helps companies streamline and optimize performance by automating certain reconciliation tasks and supporting risk-based reconciliation cycles. Flexible auto reconciliation routines add efficiencies to the reconciliation process, including easy to use features for maintaining reconciliation assignments, including mass update and import capabilities. Pre-built dashboards provide monitoring status, aging, performance metrics, and compliance metrics.
