Consolidation in AARO is just as easy no matter whether you have three or a thousand companies.
The system is supplied as a readymade package, AARO Base Package, which can either be used directly or customised after installation to meet company-specific requirements.

AARO gives you full support in all key Corporate Performance Management processes:

  • Group reporting and accounting.
  • Operational management and analysis.
  • Simulations and recalculations.
  • Planning, budgeting and forecasting.

AARO consolidates in real time with full availability 24/7

AARO consolidates all information in real time, without any delays. All users across your organisation will freely be able to prepare analyses and extract reports in the event of changes, such as during the final moments of group closing.

No more reconciling differences!

Never again will you have to spend time reconciling differences between legal and operational reports and follow-up. The only consolidation that is performed in AARO covers both legal and external group accounting and operational and internal follow-up. You can therefore always be confident that these reports will match.

Quality-assured financial close process without any downtime

AARO is available 24/7 to all users and can even be used while consolidation or maintenance is in progress, ensuring a quality-assured financial close process without any downtime.

AARO also makes it easy to continually monitor all operational, financial or non-financial assets within the business. These areas can range from products, production lines, customer segments, business areas, projects, countries and markets, to HR and environmental statistics.

AARO Base Package – ready for immediate use

AARO is supplied and installed as a readymade platform – the AARO Base Package. This comes with a chart of accounts, consolidation logic and a number of report templates which are ready for use within the group immediately after installation. You can also adapt the base package either yourself or in collaboration with us, to meet your company-specific requirements and wishes.

A basic AARO training course is provided with AARO Academy. After completing this course, you and your users will easily be able to add, edit and delete accounts, reports and logic calculations, create custom reports for company-specific follow-up over and above those which are included, and much more. The AARO Base Package includes:

  • EU BAS chart of accounts (based on IFRS)
  • Acquisition register
