We’ll also cover:

What is account reconciliation?

Account reconciliation is the process of comparing two sets of records to identify and resolve discrepancies. For example, your general ledger (GL) needs to be reconciled to your subledgers like account receivables (AR) and accounts payable (AP). It’s a critical process because reconciling accounts is the first line of defense in ensuring the integrity of your reporting and maintaining regulatory compliance.

The challenges of account reconciliation with spreadsheets

For most accounting teams, account reconciliation remains a frustrating and manual process rife with inefficiencies. Often, finance teams are tasked with chasing down owners and differences, documentation for audits, managing activities via email, and maintaining control across spreadsheets.

Many organizations use spreadsheets for their account reconciliation and close management activities, while others use their ERP, which is also inefficient. Similarly, communications around close activities are typically done via email or by adding comments to an Excel spreadsheet, which leads to missing information.

The pain points for Accountants, Accounting Managers, Controllers, and Auditors are similar–too much time spent tracking progress, a lot of manual effort to review data, miscommunication, a lack scalability, and limited data accuracy.

How to know if you’d benefit from account reconciliation software

To figure out if you’d benefit from account reconciliation software, ask yourself:

  • Does your month-end close process run longer than expected?
  • Does it feel like a chaotic, manual process?
  • Are you using spreadsheet checklists to reconcile and keep organized?
  • Are you running into late adjustments or erroneous reconciliations?
  • Do you wish you had more visibility into the process?
  • Do you find yourself unprepared for audits?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then it's time to reevaluate your approach to account reconciliation.

Account reconciliation software can help your team break free from spreadsheets and disconnected applications that are error-prone, lack transparency, and consume far too much valuable time.

By automating the reconciliation process, this type of software significantly reduces manual effort, allowing teams to focus on analysis and strategic tasks instead of mundane data entry. It can also enhance accuracy and consistency across financial statements, ensuring that every discrepancy is promptly identified and resolved.

With account reconciliation software, finance teams can achieve a faster financial close, improved compliance, and better overall financial integrity.
