Challenge

A multinational hospitality company manages many different brands in its portfolio. Preparing the reconciling entries during the monthly account reconciliation process was time-consuming, taking more than seven days to complete.  The finance team was concerned that the closing time would grow as the company added brands and locations. Complicating the solution was that they operate in a heavily regulated portion of the market, requiring extra focus on compliance. The finance team needed to perform its monthly reconciliations faster without increasing the headcount or violating regulations.

Solution

WonderBotz ReconBotz account reconciliation solution was implemented. ReconBotz is a hands-off, managed solution hosted on a secure cloud. It streamlines the close using externalized business rules, giving complete control to the finance team to manage existing accounts and quickly scale to add new ones. It automatically receives data from multiple sources and generates Oracle ARCs templated output reports and supporting evidence reports to meet the client’s needs. When it encounters an item it cannot reconcile, it provides the preparer with all of its work, enabling them to resolve the issue quickly.
