Distributed ERP Systems

Tom Zehentner

FinOptimal is pioneering the idea of distributed ERP systems. What does that mean? Connecting your current tech stack to your general ledger in a way that maximizes the value of each system by automating the data flow and audit trail to the greatest extent possible.

How does FinOptimal accomplish this?

FinOptimal has proprietary software that extracts data from the most widely used technologies that handle billing, payroll, accounts payable, travel and entertainment, commissions, inventory, time-tracking, and more. We’ve mastered these platforms’ data structures and developed our own methods to transform and enhance the data so it hits your general ledger in a thoughtful and sophisticated way.

What is the benefit of having a distributed ERP system?

Distributed ERP systems allow you to grow with agility. Businesses evolve, and your technological needs evolve in tandem. FinOptimal’s architecture is system-agnostic, giving you greater flexibility in choosing your software stack. Our implementation teams are tech-savvy accountants who can tweak our installations as your tech stack evolves to keep your operations running smoothly.

Why is it better than a traditional ERP system, like NetSuite, Oracle, or SAP?

Traditional monolithic ERP systems are expensive and rigid. The implementation process for traditional ERP systems starts with a gathering of requirements, followed by a lengthy implementation period working towards that static list of requirements. Changes to your plans during or after implementation will result in steep additional fees, or you’ll be forced to invest in additional people, systems or tools to cover up for the main system’s shortcomings.

How do you know?

FinOptimal is the brainchild of a former CFO and Controller who taught himself to code in Python to automate most of his job. Our products maximize insight into your financial and operational data. We’re also staffed with career accountants, developers, and business process transformation experts who understand the implications and pitfalls of a rigid traditional ERP system and the difficulty in maximizing their value for the cost.
