Buyers Guide: Financial Consolidation and Reporting Solutions

Executive Summary


Financial consolidation and reporting solutions have grown in importance in the last several years. While not every company requires full statutory consolidation and reporting capabilities, some elements of consolidation, and of course financial reporting, are included in every performance management project. The vendor landscape for these solutions has also changed: new leaders have emerged, and the number of vendor choices has increased, particularly for midmarket organizations. We decided it was time for consolidation and reporting to get its own buyers guide. BPM Partners is pleased to present its newly updated 2022 – 2023 Buyers Guide for Financial Consolidation and Reporting Solutions.

This is not an analyst report, but a consumer-oriented guide that leverages data from our annual BPM Pulse Research Study and Vendor Landscape Matrix report. It is the only vendor-neutral Buyers Guide for Financial Consolidation and Reporting Solutions available today.

Areas covered in this guide include: financial consolidation and close, account reconciliation, management reporting, statutory reporting, performance dashboards

This guide has 7 key sections:
