The role of an accounting subledger in today’s finance department

Subledgers, or subsidiary ledgers, have been around for decades. Subledgers have taken many forms, from loan accounting systems to general ledger (GL) posting engines.

Today, finance needs access to more frequent, and more granular data to generate financial statements across multiple reporting requirements and meet the demands of stakeholders. Double-entry subledgers, like the one included as part of the Aptitude Accounting Hub, have become a key necessity to support the enhanced, analytics-heavy needs of the Finance department.

The Aptitude Accounting Hub includes a double-entry subledger capable of:

  • Delivering Multi-GAAP, multi-entity, multi-currency reporting at a single point
  • Rationalizing posting patterns, accounting rules, and business logic across all source systems
  • Supporting drill-down from reported results to underlying transactions and business logic
  • Ensuring comparability of reporting and dramatically reducing reconciliations
  • Supporting the adoption of cloud ERP or General Ledger solutions

Aptitude Accounting Hub client success

    quote The Accounting Hub has such immense power, controls, and scalability. Once we start seeing nearly 75% more subscribers coming into it [as a result of the Sprint integration] we know that it can handle that type of volume and that level of revenue. And I would say the business is excited about the level of insights and data that we are able to provide because we are processing at such a granular level of information​.

    quote The elements of the entire program included an Enterprise Data Warehouse, Accounting Hub, and then the various pipes through from our source loan systems into those elements and into our GL. It was a highly complex program, but it was the Accounting Hub which brought it all together and which produces the disclosures needed and the financial statements, without that you’d be scrambling around in spreadsheets or whatever to produce them.”​
