Automating month end close was key. If we could run sub-ledger close manually, and that’s a big if, we’d need over 150 staff today. Automation has allowed us to reduce this to having just five staff on standby to deal with any issues. Also, it’s taken a lot of the stress out of our financial close processing. We can make considered business decisions when resolving issues.
