Streamlining Financial Reporting

Automating Period Close with WinfoBots

An agricultural chemical company primarily engaged in: manufacturing agricultural chemicals, including nitrogenous and phosphoric fertilizer materials; mixed fertilizers; and agricultural and household pest control chemicals, faced challenges in their Oracle ERP system regarding the manual period close process for various sub-ledgers, including Payables, Purchasing, OPM & Inventory, Assets, Receivables, Projects, and General Ledger.

The Challenge

Manually Run - Complex, Error-Prone & Time-Consuming Period Close Process

Delays in Financial Reporting

Increasing Need to Streamline the Period Close across countries with multiple Ledgers, Operating Units, and Inventory Organizations

This company's period close processes were executed manually on a monthly basis, leading to complexity, errors, and delays in financial reporting. With operations spanning multiple countries, ledgers, operating units, and inventory organizations, the process became even more time-consuming and intricate.
