The requirements for quality, transparency and currency of data in business management are increasing constantly. Basel II or new accounting regulations such as IAS/IFRS are only the tip of the iceberg. It is not just a matter of reproducing and representing operational value flows accurately. Planning, continuous monitoring, and variance analyses play a much more important role. The APplus modules for finance and accounting are the right tools for mastering these tasks.
With the APplus finance and accounting module, we rely on the solutions from CSS AG, which has been specialized in the areas of controlling, accounting and human resources for over thirty years.
eGECKO from CSS GmbH is fully integrated into APplus. APplus uses workflows to transmit relevant data about payables and receivables to eGECKO for further processing in the accounting area.
Information about incoming and outgoing invoices flows from the accounting department directly into APplus. A credit limit check function reconciles the data with those of existing customer accounts and evaluates open items in financial accounting. In purchasing and sales, information about down payment and final invoices is given special consideration.
In financial accounting, inbound and outbound payment streams are controlled and the foundation for meaningful and accurate financial statements - whether for individual companies or the entire group. APplus‘s financial accounting module places particular emphasis on efficient accounts receivable management. Highly automated national and international payments, automated postings, and an intelligent system for automatic processing of bank statements help to minimize the amount of manual work involved.
Establishing credible liquidity arrangements and operational risk management is important for fulfilling Basel II criteria. A particularly interesting feature of the module is the ability to check the posting system for data consistency and logical coherence. Of course, APplus also covers information provisioning in line with the GPDdU (Principles of Data Access and Auditing of Digital Documents) as standard.
Cost accounting provides the foundations for accurate intercompany service allocation and period, order and project-related income statements. APplus covers both functions of traditional cost accounting and operational controlling. In particular, using simulations as the basis for making planning adjustments and projections can effectively support management decisions in cost center, cost unit, and cost type controlling. In addition, transparent part/customer results are consolidated in profit controlling.
All payroll-related tasks are completed quickly and on time with APplus finance and accounting: With shorter routine work, lower process costs and simplified accounting methods. The essential basic payroll data is updated automatically, including health insurance and premium rates.
Additional features include the ability to reverse transactions for completed pay periods up to 48 months later and the user-friendly quick entry for HR master data. The integrated official reporting provides ready-to-send forms for government agencies.
APplus's assets accounting module provides an accurate overview of a company's assets at any given time. The definition of depreciation methods is being continuously subjected to increasing demands. Medium-sized companies also must increasingly come to terms with new depreciation and accounting rules (IAS, US GAAP). APplus asset accounting offers the necessary system support for this purpose, including flexible consolidation options in a group of companies. Other helpful features include the ability to simulate various depreciation methods and their effects on company results.
