What to look for in a Financial Management System

Your Financial Management Systems (FMS) should be set up to give you and your board information on the performance of specific areas of the business and the Key Performance Indicators important to your organisation. A good FMS should:

  • Work to the organisation’s structures and operations rather than the other way around
  • Be tightly integrated with your board’s reporting process
  • Have the flexibility to adapt to the changes and scale with your business
  • Help you to determine the factors critical to your organisation’s success

SunSystems features at a glance:

  • Map your organisation’s structure with unrivalled flexibility track up to 35 pieces of information per transaction including: company, cost centre, project.
  • Instantly refresh board reports from your accounting software
  • Drill down to investigate figures, reassured that data from other systems and reconciliation is complete –supported by advanced integration and reconciliation functionality as standard.
  • Meet change with confidence
  • Scalable financial accounting used by over 9,000 companies in 190 countries ranging from 1 user domestic sites up to 200 user global finance teams.

All too often, the information needed is not available, or there is a lack of understanding of what the relevant figures actually are. This can impede decision-making with too much time placed getting information from a disparate set of systems or reconciling the data. When choosing an accounting solution, it is important to factor in the above and how your needs will be met: how flexible the solution is, how comprehensive the reporting is, and how the software copes with change.

Choosing a partner

Your implementation partner is as important as your choice of software

There are two types of suppliers in the market for accounting software: software authors and software resellers. Whichever route you choose, it is important that you find a partner who meets your needs and that you can rely on for the future.

A good partner should:

  • Offer software from a company that is financially stable and will continue to develop and support the software for the long term
  • Have experience supporting organisations that are similar in nature to your own and understand your industry-specific requirements
  • Allow you to talk with existing customers to ensure they have a reputable customer service history with other organisations In the case of a reseller, have an established, accredited relationship with the software author and ideally be a specialist provider of the chosen solution
