How ReconBotz works

1. Ingests required info

  • Identifies accounts needing to be reconciled in the period. 
  • Processes ledger and sub-ledger data, and other very large data sources as needed which are generally the same data source used by your preparers before ReconBotz.
  • Able to pair with WonderBotz’s ReportBotz to automate the creation of required input files

2. Prepares the reconciling entry

  • Prepares 100% customized reconciling entry for each account based upon accountant instructions for all types of account
  • Supports day of close functionality and multiple currencies
  • Determines whether the reconciling entry is ready for the certification, based upon situation or accountant managed rules.
  • Reruns if a previously reconciled account becomes unreconciled
  • For accounts it cannot reconcile due to missing data, it provides the reconciling data to the accountant responsible for the account, so they can focus on analysis rather than data gathering.

3. Handles the evidence

  • Allows a variable evidence approach by account and BU
  • Depending upon your recon system, able to loads detail as part of recon (i.e., no need for separate files)
  • Able to load links to where details are stored whether in ERP or externally for use by the auditors

4. Submits the recon to your system of record

  • Fully configurable output file (detailed or summary) based upon instructions in parameters
  • Loads reconciling entries into organization’s reconciliation system of records such as Blackline, Trintech or any other. Out-of-the-box, Blackline item data import template is included. 
  • With Blackline, ability to suspend auto-reconciliation to force certifier review
  • Able to be run in trial mode before the start of a close, providing early insights to accounting leadership.
  • Visibility into close and causes of exceptions

And, because all of the controls are set and maintained without code through parameters, the accountant’s retain control of how each account is reconciled.
