Can you make your finance system more efficient?

Ensuring the proper execution of accounting processes, from invoicing to collections to cash flow management, is crucial to the success of your media business. But when you’re tied to old and costly server-based systems, it can drive the efficiency of your finance department way down.

If your financial system is inadequate, you may be experiencing:

  • Failure to meet process requirements in a timely manner
  • Time consuming, manual consolidation of multichannel revenue streams
  • Manual production of invoices for anything out of the ordinary
  • Huge technology and on-premise hosting costs within the department
  • A need for more office-present staff, driving overhead expenses up

That’s why we developed Adpoint Finance, a fully integrated finance software that streamlines accounting processes, increases cash flow, and makes it easy to track an ad through its full lifecycle, from order to invoice to payment.

Manage your sales process right through to cash collection with Adpoint’s integrated Accounts Receivable functionality. It’s been specifically designed to help you speed up collections and reduce bad debt ratios, which are both crucial to your financial performance.

We’ve developed a range of features to support your AR department, including approval workflows for managing prepaid bookings; tools for checking against client credit limits; flexible aging calculations; and easy-to-use statement and collection letter generation tools.

Cost tracking

Read more

Stop tracking costs vs revenue in your external systems, and instead start enjoying one single view of your revenue and its associated spending right from within Adpoint.

The cost tracking functionality within our advertising finance software allows you to enter, monitor, and review the costs associated with any ad, order, or product, without having to implement workarounds or switch between tools. You can link costs to ads or products and view order margin percentages instantly, and the system will automatically highlight instances where the actual cost is greater than the original estimate.

Revenue accounting

As a fully capable ad revenue accounting system, Adpoint Finance supports automatic or user-defined revenue recognition options, so you can adapt the rules to suit your requirements. Revenue is separated from invoicing – in fact, revenue recognition and billing can be on different timelines and the resulting accruals and deferrals can be calculated instantly. Adpoint’s intelligent coding engine ensures that the right GL code is applied automatically in each defined scenario.
