As you know, investment entities such as family offices, venture capital firms, and private equity investors are tightly regulated and heavily scrutinized by various oversight entities, such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
With that in mind, it’s vital that you produce detailed, accurate reports and promptly respond to all SEC inquiries. Failing to do so could tarnish your firm’s reputation and threaten business continuity.
Maintaining high organizational transparency can sometimes prove difficult, especially if your firm documents complex accounting transactions using paper-intensive processes and general accounting software not designed for the investment community.
The good news is you can simplify each capital call journal entry by migrating to the Oracle NetSuite ERP platform and leveraging Finlyte’s ION implementation framework for investment firms. Find out more about this opportunity to simplify the accounting process.
Benefits of Using NetSuite for Accounting such as a Capital Call Journal Entry
The NetSuite platform allows firms to streamline accounting entry functions, precisely track partner contributions, monitor costs, and gain real-time visibility into the entire portfolio.
You can tap into numerous other benefits by migrating to NetSuite ERP to support your accounting functions. Specifically, the transition to NetSuite will enable you to support the following aspects of running a successful investment firm.
1. Optimize Management Processes
Utilizing our ION solution to implement NetSuite will set you on the right path to optimizing your firm’s portfolio management processes. The platform offers real-time reporting capabilities via a customizable dashboard that provides a 360-degree view of your entire portfolio, various funds, and all other facets.
Additionally, ION facilitates the automation of numerous partner reporting processes, including capital call journal entries. Our solution helps optimize cash flow management and allows you to carefully document every transaction without generating stacks of paper or endless spreadsheets.
2. Precisely Track and Improve Investment Performance
Managing portfolios is only part of the equation. Your investors also expect you to closely track and optimize the performance of your portfolios. But doing so can be quite difficult when your reporting methods rely heavily on manual processes and paper documentation practices.
This scenario is where NetSuite and ION really shine. Our solution will transform your portfolio performance data into easy-to-digest insights you can use to keep investors in the loop about asset performance and deliver better value to your investors.
3. Generate Detailed Digital Reports
Has your firm ever received a surprise request for a quarterly report? If so, this unexpected ask probably kicked off a mad dash to compile the requested information from physical documents, spreadsheets, and your existing accounting software.
Even if you could gather the information promptly, the entire experience was likely one you want to avoid repeating. With NetSuite, you’ll never again have to worry about cobbling together reports on the fly.
NetSuite’s ERP software allows you to generate detailed reports quickly by allowing you to access all relevant financial data from a centralized repository. You can quickly create needed reports to keep investors in the loop, meet SEC audit requests, or simply review your portfolio performance.
4. Remain Audit-Ready
No matter how meticulous your team may be when creating capital call journal entries, errors are inevitable if you rely on redundant manual processes. Discrepancies between your physical documents and the information on your accounting platform can create a world of headaches during audits.
Switching to NetSuite can help you stay audit-ready and safeguard against data entry errors. Because NetSuite is a cloud-based solution, you can effortlessly share data in real time with your team. They’ll be ready to access critical information in the event of an audit.
