Powerful financial management

    At the heart of the SunSystems solution is a single, integrated ledger that combines the functionality of general ledger, sales and purchase ledger, project ledger, cashbook and user-defined ledgers. This provides a powerful, real-time financial transaction processing engine that lets you see the immediate impact of any financial posting, giving you greater visibility into your business.

Financials Overview

    Financial accounting is at the heart of almost every organizational decision. The measure of success and failure in the business world is based upon data that is collected, measured, and analyzed from the finance and accounting process. SunSystems understands this and our financial modules are specifically designed to provide you with immediate access to all your information, so that decisions can be made when they should be, enabling true financial management.

    The Accounting module delivers Ledger Accounting and Budget & Commitment Control, while additional options for Corporate Allocations and Asset Register enhance the breadth of the financial management offering. In addition, budgeting is brought under control with Budget Management.

Analyzing your business

    The SunSystems solution provides tremendous flexibility in the ways you can analyze financial and business information. ¡°Analysis dimensions¡± are set up to reflect organizational activity such as departments, accounts, products, regions or lines of business. There is no need to prescribe a data relationship in advance, as the analysis dimensions are created and maintained independently of each other, and are linked through transaction processing and validation rules. This means you can add new analysis dimensions or change existing ones as your business changes, providing unrivalled flexibility without implementation complexity.

Managing business performance

    Using SunSystems, you can quickly highlight problems within the operation or low-performing areas of the business, and therefore take positive action to turn things around. The unique combination of flexible analysis capabilities and integrated business analytics means that SunSystems delivers powerful reporting coupled with real-time alerts in order to highlight areas that need immediate action, anywhere within the business.

    SunSystems¡¯ integrated business analytics provide visual representation of KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) and web-based delivery of management information. This provides a consistent and timely view of business performance to your stakeholders, which can also address the challenge of corporate accountability.

    SunSystems also provides a range of analytic applications and customized solutions that help manage corporate performance, including consolidation, planning, budgeting and forecasting. The analytic applications leverage SunSystems and other applications so that financial and business information is shared and synchronized between them.
