Anaplan Accelerator: Financial Consolidations & Analytics (FC&A)

Accordion’s Financial Consolidations & Analytics (FC&A) Anaplan Accelerator is a fully built financial consolidations solution based on best practices: aggregation, intercompany eliminations, cash flow reporting, non-standard ownership, journal entries, insightful analytics, and flexible FX.

Real-time Financial Consolidations to Cut Processing Time and Speed Up the Close

  • Report on P&L, Balance Sheet, and Cash Flow by configuring to your chart of accounts
  • Aggregation through entity structures and other segments without running rules or scripts
  • Perform and track intercompany eliminations at the first common parent
  • Apply partial ownership logic that can be changed by month to allow for flexibility over time

Clearly Understand the Impact of FX on Your Business

  • Enable multiple currencies to see full company financials translated and reported
  • Apply average or end of month rates, as well as currency overrides on the balance sheet for areas such as
  • APIC or investment in subsidiaries
  • See the impact of FX movements on the cash flow
  • Easily apply alternate rate sets to enable “what if” currency analysis on the fly

Streamline Reporting and Auditability with Easy to Understand Cash Flow

  • Use balance sheet and P&L data to calculate cash flow in real time as balances change
  • Map changes in balance sheet accounts to specific movement categories and cash flow accounts
  • Allow end-users to view mappings and better understand how the cash flow lines are derived
  • Adjust movement categories from the default mapping in areas where mappings cannot fully classify account movements (PP&E for example)

Better Understand Data Changes With In-Model Topside Journal Entries and Robust Financial Controls

  • Book journal entries to adjust data sourced from general ledgers, make reclassing entries, or adjust data to satisfy varying reporting requirements (IFRS vs. GAAP)
  • Configure workflow to allow for separation of duties between creating, reviewing, and posting entries
  • Leverage Anaplan’s built in audit features to see complete history for any data point changes
  • Easily roll back the system to any point in time, rather than relying on periodic backups
