Challenges In Transparency And Compliance – Taija Engman Video Blog

Taija has discussed the common pain points in recurring revenue monetization in a video blog series.

This time she talks about the challenges in providing a single source of truth for the services billed. Transparent truth for the customers. Transparent truth for the IFRS and GAAP compliance.

The video is for you, if you offer subscriptions, pay-per-use, or contract-based services. And also when your company is looking to join the significant as-a-service business transformation.

Most certainly, your customers are happy if they received accurate and clear invoices with transparency from invoice lines to what has been billed.

And your own organization will benefit from having a full traceability from original service entitlement or event data to invoice lines and accounting transactions.

Ease OF Mind When You Know That There Are No Compliance Issues

With an automated process, you can handle revenue recognition according to the tightening accounting standards ASC606 and IFRS15 without manual effort.

You can reach a single source of truth, when all your customer contract rules are digitalized and the provided services are collected online from source data with time stamps in place.

The Signs That Indicate Potential Issues With Transparency And Compliance

  • If you still have manual steps in the gathering and consolidating of data, and processing data, some important information is lost during the process.
  • If there is no single source of truth for the recurring billing, not within the company, not to share with the customers, not sharable with auditors
  • if there are many different data snapshots or excel spreadsheets that information is pulled from whenever in need to assure billing, sort out complaints or record in bookkeeping.
