The software is really helpful and straightforward once you get used to it.

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Vorteile:

This is a great software that not only provides a much needed visibility in accounting, but it also makes the process of accounting easier by matching balance settlements. That's my favorite part.

Nachteile:

Sometimes you might stuck while navigating through activities at the beginning but once you get used to it, it becomes really straightforward and so helpful!

Best Value for Account Reconciliaton

4,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: Skystem customer service is fantastic. It's hard to find this level of friendliness and quick service with any vendor.

Vorteile:

The #1 thing we love about ART is that it has allowed us to get rid of paper reconcilements. Beyond that, the ART platform makes reconciliations more streamlined for us. It saves a lot of time during audits because the reconciliations are easy to mass export with backup documentation and audit trails. We also use the taskmaster for month end tasks which makes tracking month end progress easier.

Nachteile:

The user interface could use a refresh. The reconciliation screens could be more streamlined or intuitive. However, overall the system is relatively easy to navigate both as a user and an admin.

Review

3,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

Have not had a feature that stood out as something that is likeable other than it is a tool that appears to work.

Nachteile:

1) It can't or doesn't remember your log-in ID so you have to type it in each time. Other programs will at least remember it and only the password is needs to be entered. 2) User's can load another month's recon until the prior month is reviewed/approved. Becomes a roadblock to processing and workflow as recon may be okay but reviewer just has not gotten to it. 3) Multiple step process to save and then submit a recon. If not aware of proper steps, then recon is identified as not being done when it is. If "submit" is clicked it should be the 1 and only step. 4) Should be able to see past comments without having to go to the particular month for the reviewer to see history of review notes on particular account 5) Not intuitive on the some of the functionality to get reports out 6) Going back to undo a step, e.g. take back an approval, sends it back to preparer rather than putting it in the "to be reviewed' stage. It was approved once and maybe it is just the reviewer that wants to make a change to the review note but it goes back to preparer it seemed from the occasional times this was done.

Great tool

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: This drastically improves our reconciliation process. Our month end close was already fairly quick, but all recons hadn't been reviewed. ART allows more recons to be reviewed quicker and the tasks tool allows us to see where we're at as well as know what needs to be completed when someone is out. We've also started adding tasks for all the miscellaneous items audit asks for. They have access to ART so they can pull these as well as all the recons, limiting the time my team needs to gather all these items for them.

Vorteile:

Implementation was fairly easy, just fill out some templates and SkyStem takes care of setting up your site. The GL reconciliation tool allows for flexibility in how each account is reconciled, but all with a few different templated forms so recons are still fairly consistent (and more consistent than the various excel ones we had been using). The tasks tool is fantastic. Between tasks and reporting, it's easy to see where the close is at and what still needs to be done.

Nachteile:

There are just a few tweaks in the interface that I think would make it more user friendly and more beneficial. The SkyStem team seems to openly accept feedback though and is willing to take suggestions back to their team for future enhancements.

5,0 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

We love the ability to recon to use the built in forms compared to having everything in excel spreadsheets.

Nachteile:

Removing and changing account ownership takes longer than it should because of large amount of G/Ls. I would prefer to be able to do that quickly inside of the dashboard. Remove the limit of what can be returned and this problem would be solved.

Accounts Receivable ART comments

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall, I think ART is a good product and would be beneficial to any company. The accounts are well defined and assigned. Any outstanding items are easily identified and you always know if you are in balance or not. It helps finding miss-postings, mistakes which is obviously essential to any accounting department.

Vorteile:

Coming from a company that did account reconciliations manually, ART definitely is a huge step up in the process. It helps to identify outstanding items at a glance and is a reminder of those items that need to be addressed. Because accounts are assigned to a specific person, it also forces you to take ownership of those accounts assigned to you and held accountable. Another plus is there are several different formats and the best format is chosen for each specific account. Most of my accounts, listing the outstanding balances, and supporting documentation is all that is required so the simplicity of the set up is useful. Another advantage is that the information in ART rolls over from Month to month so you are not starting over.

Nachteile:

I think ART could be more user friendly in general. I think subscribers of ART could also benefit from tutorials. For example, for those accounts that need to balance to a spreadsheet, a tutorial on how to upload a spreadsheet in Art that would upload automatically each month would be useful. I believe there is a way to do this but I do not know how to. For more complicated accounts, ART is a bit too simplistic. Another point is that you can not put a note to the approver prior to submitting the account. Also, if you want to change the description only for an entry made in the previous month, you cannot do so. You need to close the entry and add a new entry. Now that we have been on ART for a while, I new training session would be beneficial.

ART: A Superior Product at a Reasonable Price

5,0 vor 10 Monaten

Kommentare: We first implemented ART in 2015 and our experience with ART over the years has been very favorable. With respect to customer service, it is always prompt and reliable and issues are resolved fairly quickly due to a knowledgeable team. As a testament to our satisfaction with this product, we just recently renewed our contract for another three years which is our third contract renewal since we initially implemented ART.

Vorteile:

We were on a manual, paper-based reconciliation and certification process prior to implementing ART. ART has been an ideal solution for our organization because it is easy to use, it is workflow-based, and it satisfies all of our needs for complying with Sarbanes-Oxley requirements for public companies at a fraction of the price that other companies charge for similar products with essentially the same functionality. Additionally, implementing, utilizing, and maintaining ART does not require any involvement from our IT Department whatsoever which is a big positive for most, if not all, companies, big or small.

Nachteile:

The ART team is open to feedback and recommendations for improvement. The few issues that we have brought up in the past have been addressed through additional features or functionality.

Easy to use, easy to make changes. This product has been very helpful to standardize our recon's.

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: paperless, Central location for all recon's. Although we don't use the tool in the capacity it can be used, we like how the top page gives us uniformity. We have saved time by giving our internal auditors log in's to retrieve what they want instead of the accounting team making copies or sending emails.

Vorteile:

I like the tasks portion. Although we currently use it to track our journal entries, I see it as a great monthend check list. We have two companies, one on each side of the country and we both use the tool for recon's. It is a great way for the east coast to see the recon's for the west coast without having to travel. Out internal and external auditors have all the recon's at their finger tips along with the sign off trail.

Nachteile:

We need a way to have the preparer "take back" there recon after they submit but before it's reviewed. The instructions can be a little more detailed. We like to read and do ourselves. Helpful tips should be on the site.

Kommentare: ART has greatly increased our accuracy and efficiency with our month end reconciliations and account reviews.

Vorteile:

ART has made the period end reconciliation process much quicker than using internal spreadsheets. Streamlined our reconciliation processes and greatly relieved the burdon of managing these tasks. All of our recs are now in one place and easily accessible.

Nachteile:

I sometimes have a hard time identifying where on the preparation page certain information should go. It sometimes is not intuitive enough, especially for new users.

Nachteile:

Non, I couldn't find any cons. The program works very smoothly.

Reconciliations and Tasks

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: My experience with ART has been wonderful. Easy to learn and easy to use. We implemented many years ago and had an ERP implementation which had us re-implement for the new software to connect and the new chart of accounts. This also went very smooth. The support from the team is the best I've experienced.

Vorteile:

This software has helped keep all account reconciliations across multiple countries in one place. It is easy to use and provides evidence that account reconciliations have been completed and also reviewed. We also use the task feature which allows us to have one source listing all manual journal entries and tasks required for month end. The user has to check them off as they complete and a reviewer of approver can also check off that they were completed ensuring no entries or tasks were missed during close.

Nachteile:

The Con that i have found is when an employee leaves the company we want to disable their access to the software. However you have to reassign all their accounts to another individual before you can disable. It would be good for that persons accounts and tasks went to unassigned or stayed assigned to that person until a replacement is found yet still allow you to disable their access.

ART review

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: ART is a great tool for accounts reconciliation. It really forces you to really look into the account to know what makes up the balance. It is easy to set up users in ART. Users have access right away after they have been set up.
It is easy to assign or reassign accounts to users and the changes take effect right away. No waiting period. Customer support is great. Staff are very accessible and quick in responding to whatever questions we have. It's a great tool for auditing purpose. Audit trail shows the work flow, who, when submits the recon and who when approves the recon so there's accountability. It's great that we can download the reports in excel so can sort or do pivot table or to see what have been done or have not been done.

ART is great Value for the investment

Kommentare: We felt strongly that ART was the best solution for us and was much more reasonably priced than competitors. We have never regretted the decision to go with ART.

Vorteile:

Ease of use, meets all internal and external audit requirements and the customer support is excellent!

Nachteile:

There really isn't anything we don't like about ART. The one thing I would probably name is the number of "clicks" to move around within the product.

Great rec system overall

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: Allows easier reconciliation than past systems I have used.

Vorteile:

Easy to show reconciliation, easy to attach docs and comments. Overall great tool and gets us away from using Excel as we always have in the past. Also quick to be able to go back to prior periods and review outstanding issues.

Nachteile:

Least is that the upgrades are done in the middle of the day when we are trying to use the system. Upgrades should always be done overnight when fewest users would be on. This could be my company's issue rather than the system, if it is then please disregard and everything is great.

ART is a definite improvement from what we were using before for our monthly BS account analyses.

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Vorteile:

The software is straightforward and easy to use both from an admin and user perspective. Set up and monthly maintenance is simple. The different monthly reports are helpful especially when it comes to tracking work status and keeping track of who and when changes are made in the system. What I like the most about using ART is the customer service. The response time is quick no matter what time I reach out to them for help.

ART Feedback

2,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: The person who provides us support is very nice and responsive. It is definitely possible that some of the negative aspects I perceive are based on minimal training, but I would think that for this type of tool, it would be considerably more intuitive.

Vorteile:

It is a single source that allows us to create a binder for the auditors, and there are some interesting features with account mappings. I like the overall concept of ART, but it is cumbersome to use. The support is very responsive.

Nachteile:

It is incredibly cumbersome to use and become comfortable with. Preparing BS analysis is a task, and I'm not certain how ART is easier for the accounting team than maintaining a physical binder. It has a very outdated feel.

Skystem has been easy to use and navigate. At times I do see that it doesn't refresh account stat.

Kommentare: This helps us track and be able to review our balance sheet recs. more accurately. This definantly beats doing manual balance sheet recs every month.

Vorteile:

I like that this avoids any manual reconciliation. It allows us to also go back and review period months and reporting periods.

Nachteile:

It doesn't always update when we approve certain balance sheet accounts. The approval process seems to duplicate from approver to submitter. At times, this causes us to think the recs. and signed off, when in reality we have to go back in and approve.

The implementation process and learning curve was straightforward, and their customer service has been outstanding - throughout implementation and ever since. Thank you!

ART Summary

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: ART allows me to log in and see where all of our GL balances/ reconciliations stand with one click. The dashboard tells me what has been done and by who, and what needs some review. For a busy accounting department ART is a huge time saver for Month end/Year end processes.

Vorteile:

ART software removes the need for Excel, PDF, box.com or other resources used to track and complete your monthly Account Reconciliations. Our auditors are remote so ART gives the auditors access to log in and see where our GL data stands throughout the year.

Nachteile:

The GL data upload is very simple and easy, my only request would be to link the data to our ERP system to update automatically.
