  • Accounting Engine

    For any financial institution engaged in trading, remaining in control of its assets and cash is fundamental to successful and efficient operations of its business. Accurate capture of transactions, maintaining uniform standard for accounting rules across the organization and providing accounting transparency across multiple source system becomes a mammoth task for institutions. Every source system generates its own set of events due to which standardization becomes difficult to achieve. Existing systems have embedded accounting systems which have no CofA and no balance calculations. No single system tracks entire lifecycle of a financial instrument. Reconciliation of internal records with external entities, maintaining P&L position, and complying with directives from regulatory authorities pose a further challenge.

    BIS Accounting Engine (AE) is a fully integrated suite which enables an organization to integrate multiple front office system with back office system enforcing one standardised set of accounting rules. Our drilldown features from summarised aggregate balances to underlying details make reconciliation easy and auditing transparent. With minimizing human intervention and errors to a great extent, AE aims to achieve single point of control over accounting thereby making organization wide compliance to regulatory directives easy to implement.

  • Close Optimization

    Organizations that lack sufficient time for value-added activities often exhibit signs such as requiring more than five days to close the books, using a spreadsheet-based financial consolidation process, needing many manual journal entries or other manual activities to close the books, lack of capacity to analyze business drivers and identify root causes, and a current or recent merger, acquisition, spin-off or sale.

    BIS's Finance Process Optimization & Integration Suite can help companies shrink transaction processing costs up to 30 percent, reduce error rates by up to 90 percent and compress cycle times by up to 70 percent. With our help, our clients have been able achieve these benefits through targeted process improvement, creating shared services and outsourcing non-core transactions where appropriate.

    We help clients implement standardization across business unit functions in processing information, submitting local ledgers and posting closing entries in order to lower exception rates and the level of rework needed. Our Finance Process Optimization & Integration team develops a chart of accounting and reporting structures to facilitate capturing and reporting of appropriate information for all stakeholders, which enables the organization to meet management's demand for analytical information without a high level of extra effort

  • IAS/IFRS Reporting

    Finance departments worldwide face continuous pressure to deliver efficient and accurate financial and regulatory reports as well as support the appropriate systems and processes to drive better performance. Many departments are challenged by a lengthy, or inefficient, close process with multiple manual steps and checkpoints. For these departments, collecting and verifying data is challenging, as is processing consolidations such as minority interest, currency, multiple GAAP and regulatory reports. Financial statements are delivered just in time, with little time available for analysis or review. These issues are particularly challenging for European Union countries where legislation such as the Transparency Directive, is driving the acceleration in reporting timeframes and demanding increased certification of final results. This puts enormous pressure on systems to support these requirements.

    BIS' IFRS Reporting Solution helps customers address the challenge of facilitating continuous performance improvement practices while efficiently meeting the demands of compliance and external reporting under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The solution is specifically designed to support organizations that are required report under IFRS guidelines, and provides a financial consolidation foundation system to support additional regulatory and management reporting. To help you meet the challenges of transition to International Financial Reporting Standards, we offer a business-based approach. We work with you to understand the technical accounting complexity of adopting IFRS and update your reporting process accordingly. We also help you to identify and manage any broader impacts to your business.


  • Management Reporting

    In today's organizations, a vast amount of important security and compliance data is stored within multiple applications, making it very difficult and time
    consuming to correlate and analyze this valuable information, and because management applications are forced to purge data regularly to accommodate for volume and performance concerns, trending and analysis of data over time is almost impossible. By bringing it all together, organizations will improve
    compliance reporting and speed troubleshooting with historical analysis and

  • Regulatory and Statuary Reporting

    BIS is the premier provider of regulatory reporting software solutions to the financial industry. Our Regulatory Reporting Suite (RRS) is a complete system addressing the large position regulatory disclosure needs of global institutional investors. Many institutional investors still rely on largely manual methods of compiling, reviewing and filing position disclosure reports. For many firms, frequent organizational re-alignments and the increasing globalization of investment strategies has made traditional reporting operations unwieldy and error prone. In addition, global marketplaces are frequently redefining position disclosure requirements using country specific holdings thresholds and varying reporting frequencies thus increasing the burdens on compliance departments. Our RRS streamlines the regulatory position disclosure process while vastly improving the accuracy and timeliness of such reporting.

    RRS delivers an integrated facility that manages the compliance process surrounding the capture, aggregation, testing and review of position information and generates complete regulatory documents ready for submission. RRS is a highly extensible product engineered to address new jurisdictions, solve evolving reporting requirements and support ad hoc data mining. BIS plans to aggressively incorporate additional jurisdictions into RRS to maintain its posture as the pre-eminent producer of global regulatory reporting solutions.
