The Winter ’14 release of FinancialForce Accounting streamlines and provides additional automation of a number of financial processes and activities including year-end, accounts receivable ageing, bank reconciliation, accounts payable processing and currency revaluation. Additionally, the application will now integrate with Avalara, the leading provider of sales tax and compliance automation services in the cloud. This integration will enable customers to better manage complex sales and use taxes on the Salesforce Platform and will give them the option to use Avalara to track and submit tax forms and payments.

Pascal Van Dooren, EVP of sales and marketing at Avalara said, “Manually managing sales tax is difficult, expensive and time consuming – and businesses can face stiff penalties if they don’t get it right. Avalara’s software as a service offering makes sales tax compliance simple and automatic for thousands of customers every day, and we look forward to doing the same for customers. In today’s electronic world, it just doesn’t make sense to manually manage sales tax.”

FinancialForce PSA

FinancialForce PSA Winter ’14 delivers a more comprehensive resource management and project management experience for customers. Key product updates include:

  • Updated timecard interface offers a single point of entry in the cloud for resource management, project management and billing on assignments.
  • Time against task feature allows customers to track time on project tasks. As task time is entered, it will automatically roll into the timecard assignments for billing while still allowing users the ability to manage project tasks separately for project management purposes.
  • New Gantt chart functionality provides customers with a visual representation of projects, tasks and resources that will allow them to see the flow of a project and the relationship of tasks over time.
  • Mobile expense capabilities give customers the power to add and edit expenses in the mobile application, even if their phone has no connectivity, such as on an airplane.
