Is your organization still relying on legacy software or Excel to perform Statutory Consolidation and Management reporting? Is your consolidation process very manual and error-prone? Is your system difficult to maintain and highly customized?

If so, you’re not alone – incredibly many consolidation solutions still do not provide the functionality that a modern buyer is looking for and expecting so that you can allocate precious and limited organizational resources on things that really matter. Fortunately, some solutions deliver functionality to take your consolidation efficiency to the next level.

Register for this webinar to hear from experts Craig Schiff, BPM Partners, and Guy Menard, VP Product Management from Longview, as they examine the 7 Myths and Misconceptions of Consolidation Software that will show that not all consolidation solutions are equal.

Key Learnings:

  • Understand the difference between next-generation capabilities compared to legacy functionality
  • Discover new features that will greatly improve your close process
  • Gather practical advice on what to look for and what questions to ask when evaluating consolidation solutions
  • Hear how next-generation consolidation solutions are enabling organizations to automate their process, reduce the time to close and give you confidence that your data is accurate
