Solomon Stands the Test of Time Despite Changing Masters Part Three: Product Differentiators


Of all the MBS' products, Solomon is apparently the purest in terms of a standard Microsoft technology stack, and without any proprietary additions. Furthermore, its sharp focus solely on Microsoft technology from ground up, coined in ''the power of one'' motto (one OS platform - Windows XP/NT/2000, one database platform - MS SQL Server, one development environment - MS Visual Basic, etc.), also presents an attractive, risk-adverse option for penny-pinching mid-market customers.

Modern Finance In The Digital Age: Report and Comply Best Practices


In the era of big data, the traditional models for report and comply functions are becoming obsolete. But report and comply processes no longer have to be time consuming, frustrating, or fragmented. By consolidating systems and information across departments and divisions, enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions via cloud technologies can help businesses modernize these processes, making the record-to-report cycle faster and allowing for data to be in the right hands and the right time. This synchronization of information via the cloud can streamline what used to be a long and complex process. Better business choices can be made by installing best practices for data governance, ensuring that the highest quality data is used and errors are avoided.

Increasingly, modern business models feature cloud technology as vital for present and future transactions, but best practices must also be installed to ensure success. In this white paper, read how to develop and refine report and comply best practices in the areas of general ledger accounting, the financial close, management reporting, and external reporting. Learn how the standard of real-time decision making is being challenged and replaced by a more forward-thinking, data-driven idea of “right-time” decision making, and the importance of streamlining report and comply functions. By using best practices and technology together, learn how to modernize and hone these processes to develop a more efficient strategic process that allows tasks to occur simultaneously, allowing everyone to have the same access to information, reduce errors, and eliminate overtime.
