General Ledger in the Cloud

General Ledger in the Cloud is the heart of the FIRST OPTION FINANCIALS (formerly Daprex) applications, serving both corporate and not-for-profit institutions. It validates and collects data from all the integrated systems, resulting in a comprehensive database for all financial analysis. The ability to run monthly financial statements enables management to keep a finger on the pulse of the ever changing financial status. Detailed current, historical, budget and forecast data is maintained for comparative reporting.

The General Ledger's flexible framework lets you mirror your own structure, providing the means by which to present the data according to internal reporting requirements. A comprehensive set of on-demand reports and inquiries combined with a powerful, yet easy to use system, furnishes crucial financial information on an as needed basis. Complete integration with the other FIRST OPTION FINANCIALS (formerly Daprex) applications assures accurate and timely recording of financial data.
