Too much time spent on reporting

Many finance teams end up spending excessive time trying to understand and report on data within their finance system. This makes it challenging to simply provide stakeholders with a clear overview of the numbers.

Struggling to forecast financial performance

If 2020 proved anything to finance teams, it is that having a future view of your cash position is absolutely critical to business success. Old technology often holds finance teams back from being able to plan.

Can’t support business strategy

Finance teams need to be supported by technology which turns finance into an enabler. Finance leaders struggle to transition their department from number crunchers to pioneers of business strategy.

Frequently asked questions

We offer outstanding functionality and excellent service to ensure you continuously save time, have a clear view of cash flow and make performance your number one priority.

  • What is the advantage of using Cloud-based financial management software?

    One of the big advantages of moving to the Cloud is that you can access your system anytime, anywhere. This has proven to be critical for businesses facing the challenges of the pandemic. Utilising the Cloud also means all your data is stored safely and securely, so you don’t to have to worry about physical documents and data getting lost or misplaced. Cloud software is priced differently, allowing customers to pay a subscription fee rather than hefty upfront costs. It includes upgrades and licence fees every year, making it much more affordable and cost-effective.

     

  • What is the benefit of integrated document management in financial management software?

    Processing supplier invoices is extremely time-consuming and expensive. In addition, delays in invoice processing can result in reduced supplier discounts and late payment penalties. Our software automates and streamlines the processing of supplier invoices, centralising the deposit of financial documents into a secure, easily accessible repository.

  • How secure is my data in Cloud-based financial management software?

    Cloud Financials from Advanced is based on Amazon Web Services, which is one of the most trusted Cloud platforms globally. Full disaster recovery is provided with 24/7 system availability and 99.5 per cent product uptime.

  • Why do I need SaaS-based financial management software?

    Moving to a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model means you pay one simple monthly fee for your product, support, account management and services. All upgrades and enhancements are built into the product in real time and included within your monthly subscription costs. This means you won’t be hit with any scary upgrade surprises later on down the line.

  • When is the best time to switch to Cloud-based financial management software?

    To put it bluntly, now. This year has shown that moving to the Cloud is no longer a ‘nice to have’ but a ‘must have’ for organisations who want to remain agile and access systems remotely with ease. Moving to the Cloud also has cost benefits over time, and can be a good way to reduce on-premise software spend.
