Aptitude Software provides the specialist solutions CFOs and their Finance teams need to deliver reporting and insights beyond what is possible with ERP and legacy finance systems.

    Integrate finance, from source to post

    Replace manual, Excel-driven or opaque integration processes with a transparent data lineage between the books and records system and front office transaction systems.

    To support their organizations, CFOs have invested heavily in enterprise technology such as data warehouses and data integration middleware but finance teams have struggled to achieve the promised benefits. Aptitude Software provides unique finance and accounting integration solutions that link billing, trading, operational and finance architectures to provide a single finance and accounting operational environment. Our solutions enable finance and finance IT teams to deliver transparency, business insight and confidence in data while speeding manual processes.

With a single operational environment, financial controllers, accountants, auditors and business partners are able to understand and have confidence in balances and control accounting rules. In turn, this ensures that finance can confidently deliver data and informational insights for business analysis and reporting.

  • Modernize finance IT architectures

    Modernize finance IT architectures

    Ensure that the finance IT environment provides the efficiency, agility, insights and performance that your business requires.

    ERP solutions often fail to deliver the granularity and detail that financial controllers, finance business partners and regulatory reporting teams require. We are different than most IT-centric technology solution approaches as we focus on delivering specialist solutions for finance who have long been underserved by Big Data-type technologies and ERP platforms. Aptitude Software’s specialist engines and platforms integrate with and complement existing back office systems and often do not require the massive systems changes associated with other approaches.
