How Generative AI is Transforming the Month-End Close Process

How Generative Ai Is Transforming The Month End Close Process

Whether you’re a seasoned professional, a budding entrepreneur, or a small business owner, you’ve probably heard the dreaded phrase: “month-end close.” If the very mention of these 3 words makes you break out in a cold sweat, you’re not alone. What if I told you I know of a smart AI-powered accounting solution capable of closing the books without long days and undue stress? 

It’s not just about accounting automation anymore. By adding Generative AI into the mix, Docyt transforms the month-end close process, making it smarter, faster, and downright revolutionary. 

Let’s dive in!

Understanding Generative AI and Its Magic

Before we talk specifics, let’s get a grip on the basics. Generative AI is a branch of artificial intelligence where the system is trained to produce new and unique content. It could be anything – text, images, music. In finance, it’s about generating accurate financial statements, reports, and forecasts by understanding patterns, past transactions, and various financial nuances. It’s more than just rote automation; it’s automation with intelligence.

Docyt AI: Changing the Game

Companies like Docyt have ushered in a new era. They’ve brought generative AI into the month-end close process resulting in mind-blowing optimization and giving finance professionals the kind of superpower they could only dream about before Generative AI. Manual inputs, error checks, and countless hours lost in reconciliation are a thing of the past. Generative AI, as Docyt harnesses it, can auto-generate financial entries, predict anomalies, and suggest corrections. It’s proactive, not just reactive.

Examples That Will Make You Say ‘Wow!’

Consider your typical invoices, receipts, and expenses. Now, automation tools might input these into your systems. But here’s where generative AI shines. It doesn’t just input; it understands. So, when you get an oddly categorized expense or an expense entry that is missing information, generative AI doesn’t just flag it – it dives into research mode scouring and analyzing extensive data sets to produce concise, high-quality text summaries so you can transform conversations into actionable accounting data, generating reports and insights, and quickly answering financial questions. It’s like having an extremely savvy accountant by your side, every step of the way.

Forecasting and Analysis

Most businesses have seasonality. There are patterns. Generative AI doesn’t just look at these patterns; it understands and predicts them. If you’re a retail business, it could preemptively suggest increasing inventory during the high-volume months and predict what cash flow might look like based on previous years. Docyt and its generative AI can essentially help you foresee financial challenges or opportunities.

Matching entries can be a nightmare in the month-end close process. Generative AI doesn’t just match; it learns and advises.  So, for those discrepancies that you would otherwise manually locate and correct every month, guess what? Docyt AI takes the automation game to the next level by deploying two AI models: Generative AI and Precision AI, which work in sync to match and categorize transactions that typically require human intervention.  In addition, Generative AI collects and analyzes all of the data, be it structured, unstructured, financial, or nonfinancial, it learns from it, and either auto-corrects discrepancies or gives you a heads-up.

 

In essence, the month-end close process, thanks to generative AI technology and pioneering companies like Docyt, has undergone a metamorphosis. It’s not just about automating tasks anymore; it’s about enhancing, predicting, and transforming the entire workflow.

If you’re still spending sleepless nights or long hours at the end of the month, maybe it’s time to embrace this brave new world. After all, who doesn’t want an assistant that makes financial closing not just faster, but smarter? Welcome to the future of finance!
