Implementation of AARO
Our consultants have advanced skills and long practical experience in group accounting, and operational follow-up and control. They know the system and its capacity, and have as their goal to assure your project right from implementation to start-up, so that your wishes and requirements can be met in the very best way.
Upgrade of AARO
For best performance and compatibility with other systems, we carry out projects to upgrade to the latest version of AARO. Besides better performance and compatibility, the upgrade gives you access to new functionality that creates new possibilities for you in your closing process.
To make the upgrade process as smooth as possible, together with you we go through the time schedule and the activities that the version changeover entails.
System management and operation of AARO
For those of you without the time or interest to run your AARO application, or who perhaps do not have access to the IT skills needed, we can both operate and manage the installation for you at cost-effective rates. In addition to thorough knowledge of your particular AARO version, our application management includes far-reaching responsibilities – aimed to optimise your use of and benefits from AARO.
Application management means that we monitor your installation and take the preventive system configuration actions required for you to maximise the availability of your AARO.
In the event of a disruption we provide analysis, technical help and expertise to ensure that AARO becomes available to you again as quickly as possible.
AARO is under constant development to provide you with new functionality and improved performance, and to assure compatibility with other systems. We therefore recommend that you regularly upgrade AARO to the latest version. We take responsibility for you always having the latest version of AARO installed, first in test mode, then in production.
Regular skills development
We want you to make optimum use of AARO, so our application management includes regular skills development for your users, adapting the training to your use of AARO. A “solution expert group” is linked to you, people with thorough knowledge of your AARO installation, who can give you advice and instructions in order for your users to operate AARO in the best and most effective way.
Through our support function we give you continuous online support. You can feel confident during the closing process, since our support function can when necessary be available evenings and weekends.
Our support team have many years’ experience in group accounting and financial control in major listed companies, and spearheads AARO’s system competence.
We have carried out many projects in which AARO is integrated with other systems and processes, aimed to minimise the stages in information transfer.
If you want to integrate your company’s business system, ERP system etc., with AARO for automatic data collection from an external source, it can be done with our standardised AARO Integrator II. There is also the possibility of opening the door to AARO via other systems.
AARO Connector provides a secure and standard way to fetch information for further processing, presentation and analysis. Other clients or system solutions can read information in real time directly from AARO with the help of AARO Connector.
AARO Base Package takes into account all new developments in the field of IFRS. If your company is working with an older version of AARO, we can adapt the system to comply with the latest IFRS requirements. We monitor developments in IFRS and their impact on your group accounting.
In order for our clients to feel confident and self-sufficient in using AARO in the best way, we regularly offer training in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö. In training sessions we go through functions and options in AARO. We also have advanced courses on certain sections of AARO which are of special interest to you who have worked with AARO for a while and want to further develop your skills. We also give information about new features in coming versions of AARO.
