 Financial Close History


The analytical app displays the Key Performance Indicator (KPI) Financial Close History. You can track the historical close information to find out whether the financial close in the previous posting periods was on track. By analyzing the root causes for errors or delays in the previous posting periods, you can improve the financial close cycle so that the closing tasks can be completed on time or with reduced delays and errors in the future.

Key Features

  • Display the actual duration in hours of tasks in the previous posting periods.

  • Display the number of tasks in the previous posting periods.

  • Display the top 5 tasks with largest deviation in actual duration. The deviation is the difference between actual duration and planned duration divided by planned duration.

  • Display the top 5 tasks with longest actual duration.

  • Display the actual duration, planned duration, and delay of completion in hours of tasks in the previous posting periods. Delay of completion is the difference between the actual end time of a task and the planned end time of the task.

  • Follow up with the responsible agent by sending emails.
