Manage Spending Across Companies with One Platform:
At Ariett, we have customers that have 5, 15, 25, 100+ companies functioning in a multi-company database without having to log in and out to process across transactions. Can you count how many times a day you log in and out of a company? The design of legacy accounting software produces this tedious, inefficient process. With Ariett, a simple drop-down list switches you seamlessly between companies. Ariett manages user rights and visibility to company entity transactions - so no more logging in and out!

Manage Inter-Entity and Intercompany Processing with One Platform:
If your organization has one company but many entities or subsidiaries, Ariett supports inter-entity processing from a single transaction to various entities/dimensions/subsidiaries. If you want certain vendors to be visible for specific entities or if you want users to have access to specific entities, Ariett makes this possible.
For organizations with multiple companies, it can be a hassle to allocate expenses from one entity, such as corporate headquarters, to another entity. Too often this means relying on a spreadsheet and manually managing eliminations to get the “due to” and “due from” right in each company. However, a modern cloud purchase to payment solution allows an employee to allocate an amount on a requisition, invoice or expense report from one company to another company.
Leverage a flexible Cloud Platform for Your Growing Company:
It’s important that your finance team has the right tools in place to support expansion or an acquisition. A cloud procurement and accounts payable solution makes it easy for a new company/entity/subsidiary to be set up immediately.

Faster Month-End Closing and Audits
By keeping track of all invoice and employee expense accruals for multiple entities/companies/subsidiaries before they’ve been paid, Ariett makes it less time-consuming to complete month-end closing. A cloud solution with multi-entity capabilities can reduce the time spent on producing monthly financial statements from days to hours because all information is consolidated in one application. Similarly, if you have an upcoming internal or external audit, a solution like Ariett’s provides auditors with immediate access to all approvals, transactions and documents across entities.
Easily Process Transactions in Multiple Currencies
If your organization has entities with different functional currencies (also called “base” currencies) or has vendors that use different currencies, then a multi-currency solution becomes essential. By having a solution that automatically calculates currency conversion, your finance team saves time on completing these calculations in a spreadsheet. To ensure that customers receive up to date exchange rates, Ariett provides an API that daily imports European Central Bank rates.
