Your revenue recognition policies and rules are unique to your company, so you need a revenue recognition and forecasting solution that can easily be configured to your systems.
Zuora Revenue’s proven, rules-based engine seamlessly integrates with your ERP, business applications or Zuora Billing to automate the entire revenue recognition process.
Zuora Revenue is the most widely-deployed revenue recognition solution available today for non-subscription and subscription businesses alike.
The use of manual spreadsheets carries a substantial risk of restatements, errors, and possible fines. The time and financial costs of auditing these manual processes is also a huge burden on companies. And spreadsheets simply can’t handle the volume and flow of transactions through the accounting life-cycle, delaying review and increasing the period close cycle.
By replacing spreadsheets with a scalable, automated, and auditable solution, Zuora Revenue aids in maintaining compliance with existing policies and accounting guidance. Manual changes to transactions and system settings are tracked and reported, and changes to policies and guidance can be systematically implemented and reviewed.
With new, converged revenue guidance (ASC 606/IFRS 15), it’s more important than ever to automate revenue recognition to stay in compliance. The automation process requires some amount of pre-work to ensure data quality, so the time to start is now.
Zuora Revenue periodic processing, standardization, and automation allows users to proactively identify and resolve issues, increase productivity, and reduce the close cycle.
Audit time and fees are also reduced.
Zuora Revenue's rules-based engine allows for the standardization of business processes and accounting policies across regions and organizations.
Revenue scenarios can be automatically processed through Zuora Revenue, allowing revenue users to spend time reviewing more complex or unique deals rather than “crunching numbers.”
With Zuora Revenue, transactions can be processed and reviewed on a real-time basis, rather than waiting for period end and finalization of a spreadsheet. Revenue entries are automatically generated for posting to the financial system. Revenue details are available in Zuora Revenue to users throughout the organization based on their roles and responsibilities. These details can be ported back to existing reporting and business intelligence applications.
Zuora Revenue's rules-based engine can be configured to your specific needs to manage the timing of revenue recognition. It creates a “revenue waterfall” of future scheduled revenue, along with rules for forecasting the timing of revenue recognition of unscheduled deferred revenue and backlog.
Zuora Revenue is the only revenue automation solution to provide dual reporting capabilities under existing and new GAAP and IFRS guidance. This feature allows companies to configure Zuora Revenue for what-if scenarios while they are deciding which transition method to use. And it facilitates push-button reporting for dual reporting under both scenarios going forward.
