LEDGER SETS ‡Grouping of ledgers with the same chart of accounts and calendar/period type combination ‡Essentially treats multiple ledgers as one .

not a data warehouse .Ledger Set Benefits ‡ Shorter Close Process ‡ Run month-end close processes across multiple ledgers simultaneously ‡ Greater flexibility to decentralize/centralize accounting functions ‡ The corporate office can control the period status for multiple subsidiaries at once ‡ Real-Time Enterprise-Wide Visibility ‡ Quickly report across the entire enterprise in real-time because no transfer of data is required ‡ Reported results are accurate and timely because they are based on the transactional system.

Ledger Set Benefits ‡ More Efficient Access to Ledger Data ‡ No need to change responsibilities to access data in different ledgers ‡ Processing Efficiency ‡ Essentially treats multiple ledgers as one and eliminates the overhead of having a high number of ledgers defined ‡ Reduces the number of repetitive tasks that offer limited value and allows you to spend more time on value-added tasks ‡ Reporting Efficiency ‡ Obtain ³flash´ reports throughout the accounting cycle to proactively manage the business instead of waiting until the end of the month when the data collected is backward looking .

Impacted Applications Ledger Sets ‡ Ledger Sets used by General Ledger ‡ Some AR and AP reports use Ledger Sets .

Impact/Upgrade Considerations Ledger Sets ‡ None. All sets of books upgraded to ledgers ‡ Only need to define ledger sets to obtain processing efficiencies .
