How can I improve revenue recognition?

Building large complex spreadsheets to track each invoice, and each line within an invoice, can quickly become unwieldy.

Contract terms are subject to change. Credit notes are issued. Free or discounted products are added or removed.

Even for the best finance teams, errors are inevitable, and sharing a live view of revenue with the business can become challenging. Tracking these items manually can require days every month.

Automation is key to avoid the errors and time lost.

ScaleXP invoice line description

Streamline deferred & accrued income

ScaleXP streamlines deferred revenue and accrued income recognition by reading the details on each invoice and automatically spreads the revenue over the relevant time. 

Through a series of complex natural language algorithms, revenue is categorised by month and then by day – revenue is allocated correctly to the day. 

The system is able to do this by importing the full text on each invoice from your accounting system, with no need to retype!
