Speed Up Your Financial Close
Take the tedium out of consolidations with automation to reduce the amount of time it takes for you to close the books.
Get Back to Work
Financial close and consolidation typically relies on too many manual processes, disconnected and complex spreadsheets, email-driven collaboration, and huge manual efforts to gather and organize data. It all leads to a painfully slow and cumbersome process that drags on finance productivity and pulls them away from more strategic projects.
Planful integrates data from financial and operational systems to create a true single source of truth to drive every close. Automate tedious manual steps, ensure data integrity and visibility throughout the process, and empower finance to orchestrate the close process with greater collaboration and control.
