What is
Consolidation & Close?

The consolidation process can seem endless. It is an extremely challenging and a lengthy process to collect data from your departments and to ensure all that information is accurate. A range of problems can occur, including duplicate data, incomplete data and inaccuracies, which makes decision-making a nightmare for business leaders when it comes to planning and budgeting.

Fortunately, today’s Finance teams can access a range of tools to make financial consolidation quick and painless, including SAP Business Planning and Consolidation (SAP BPC), SAP Analytics Cloud, CCH Tagetik, and Codestone’s out-of-the-box package, INSIGHT for Planning and Consolidation.

Our Approach


Certified and accredited
to provide you the right solution

We understand the struggle. Consolidation and Close is vital to understanding the overall fiscal performance of an organisation. It must be done but it can be a long, drawn-out process. Compiling siloed reports, manual data entry, Excel frustrations – these are suboptimal solutions that are vulnerable to error and costing your business time and money.

As a growing business, you need to make the change, but you need to do it quickly.

Codestone has a number of out-of-the-box Consolidation packages that will save you crunching numbers and worrying about compliance. Instead, we will help you spend that time closing the books faster and making data-driven decisions with greater confidence.
