Financials Expert Posts New Article - "Automate the Disclosure of Your Financial and Regulatory Reports - Including XBRL Submissions"

Dedham, MA (PressExposure) April 19, 2012 -- In this article, learn how to use SAP BusinessObjects Disclosure Management to automate the processes of managing the production, publication, and filing of financial statements and regulatory disclosures, including eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) submissions. Companies using SAP solutions have already automated many of the processes involved in their financial close using SAP ERP Financials and SAP BusinessObjects solutions. However, once the books have been closed, the equally important process of publishing the results remains. This article helps to also automate that step.

Author, Birgit Starmanns, provides a guide on how to use SAP BusinessObjects Disclosure Management to automate the process of publishing final results after a business's financial close. Bob Croce, product director of SAPexperts comments, "Automation of processes ultimately adds value to shareholders. The value of saved time and money can be shown directly to shareholders in the automated report they receive following an organization's financial close."
