Operational Visibility and Financial Consolidations

Financial consolidations help improve operational visibility by aggregating financial information from different business subsidiaries into a cohesive set of financial statements.

- Consolidation of companies that operate under different local currencies and different chart of account structures.
- Consolidation of individual company accounts based on average exchange rates, closing exchange rates or historical exchange rates.
- Consolidations to reflect minority interests of companies within the group.
- Setting up a multi-level consolidation hierarchy to facilitate group-level reporting.
- Additionally, SAP Business One in Dubai is able to run the consolidation process using pre-defined schedules.
Running SAP Business One
SAP Business One is a highly flexible solution that can be easily configured to run on both small and mid-size operations. Businesses can set up the entire solution from a central web-based module, thus eliminating the need for individual configuration for every participating company.
A small company may have fewer units they need to consolidate or reconcile, or perhaps no currency conversions at all. In such a scenario, that business can integrate SAP Business One live to deliver a valuable real-time performance with no risk of overloading the server with too many queries.
