A solution built for compliance
Following the new five-step process for recognizing revenue,
the solution helps you aggregate data into a single point of
access for all contract information. Tag data entries and record
any changes made throughout the life-cycle of a contract, as
well as the author. You can establish and maintain an audit trail
of actions and decisions made throughout the data collection
and revenue recognition process to ensure full traceability,
compliance and reporting.
Contract summaries for audits and approvals
By generating contract summaries, users will be given a
snapshot of all information that is relevant for reviews and
audits, including a summary of performance obligations that
are accessible for all stakeholders.
Role-based and user-friendly interface
Define user-roles and permissions to ensure compliant visibility
into revenue contracts and data.
Thanks to the modern, rich and intuitive design, the interface
only requires minimal user training.
Stakeholders collaboration in the data collection process
Users can send messages, receive alerts, validate data accuracy,
and quickly approve decisions throughout the lifecycle of a
contract. The result is improved data accuracy and lower risk of
non-compliance through the consistent review of information
by legal advisers, accountants, government bodies, consultants,
and other relevant stakeholders.
For specific business requirements, the solution provides a
configurable interface and AdminConsole™ that allow you to
customize revenue contract attributes. Maximizing flexibility
and efficiency, it helps simplify and standardize data entry for
any revenue transaction types, such as performance-based
incentive fees, licenses of intellectual property, future upgrades,
additional vendor obligations, and more.
Built for compliance, the data collection follows the five-step process for
recognizing revenue, as required by the new accounting standards
