Finance is no longer just a keeper of accounting transactions. In today’s highly competitive world, leading enterprises rely on Finance as a strategic differentiator. No wonder large and medium enterprises are transforming their F&A functions for the digital age. However, despite spending tens of millions of dollars, the outcomes are falling short of expectations. One reason is the lack of a holistic perspective of the structural underpinnings and many facets of finance and accounting functions.

A finance capability model is an essential blueprint to help Finance executives, Business, and Enterprise Architects gain a comprehensive understanding of F&A based on foundational entities – the capabilities. The accounting and finance business capabilities map is a structurally sound and internally coherent model.

What is the Value of the Finance Capability Model?

A business capabilities model is a fundamental and foundational entity in the business architecture continuum.

The Record to Report value stream has emerged as a mission-critical function, particularly in this data-driven digital age. The CIOPages accounting and finance capability model encapsulates the essence of accounting and finance functions with a detailed, multilevel capabilities list.

Product FAQs:

Can I see a Sample Deliverable?

We are sorry, but we cannot send or show sample deliverables. There are two reasons: A) The deliverables are our intellectual property, and we cannot share the same. B) While you may be a genuine buyer, our experience in the past has not been great with too many browsers and not many buyers. We believe the depth of the information in the product description and the snippets we provide are sufficient to understand the scope and quality of our products.

When can I access my deliverables?

We process each transaction manually and hence, processing a deliverable may take anywhere from a few minutes to up to a day. The reason is to ensure appropriate licensing and also validating the deliverables.

Where can I access my deliverables?

Your best bet is to log in to the portal and download the products from the included links. The links do not expire.

Are there any restrictions on Downloads?

Yes. You can only download the products three times. We believe that is sufficient for any genuine usage situation. Of course, once you download, you can save electronic copies to your computer or a cloud drive.

Can I share or sell the deliverables with anyone?

You can share the deliverables within a company for proper use. You cannot share the deliverables outside your company. Selling or giving away free is prohibited, as well.

Can we talk to you on the phone?

Not generally. Compared to our professional services fee, the price of our products is a fraction of what we charge for custom work. Hence, our business model does not support pre-sales support.

Do you offer orientation or support to understand and use your deliverables?

Yes, for a separate fee. You can hire our consultants for remote help and in some cases for onsite assistance. Please Contact Us.
