Why ART?

Companies put ART into place to transform their account recon-ciliation process. 

As a SaaS solution, ART provides them with a means of
automating account reconciliations, and thereby gaining visibility into and management of their entire close process.  They enjoy ART's powerful workflow management and reporting tools and grant auditors limited access to ART's built in central repository.
Take a quick tour here.

Auditor Love Letter - Feb 2015

Think you are alone in needing to improve your close?
Does this sound familiar?

"I have a drawer full of reconciliations that need to be scanned."

"It's prone to errors because it is not automated."

"I just need to get my arms around this process."

Five Steps To Loving Reconciliations

AG Bio  Annette Grotz

We're all about love this month. We love groundhogs with an appetite for ears. We love Valentine's Day and all of the associated warm fuzzy feelings. We love President's Day and the crazy discounts often paired with faces on Mount Rushmore. 
Ultimately, we love reconciliations, the month-end close process and helping you love it too (or maybe just maybe, start to like it a little more).
Here is our list of Five Steps to Loving Reconciliations, plus one more:
1. Eliminate status-update meetings and status-update emails
2. Put review notes on something more permanent than sticky notes
3. Cut down on the time it takes to review reconciliations
4. Standardize reconciliation cover-sheets / checklists
5. Know from day zero in the close process about any variances and write offs
 6: Automate with ART to handle steps 1 through 5 and love the visibility and control you gain

Take in a quick demo and fall in love with ART and its ability to empower you and your team, no matter how many regulations or account reconciliations are thrown at you.
