Pros: Easy to show reconciliation, easy to attach docs and comments. Overall great tool and gets us away from using Excel as we always have in the past. Also quick to be able to go back to prior periods and review outstanding issues.

Cons: Least is that the upgrades are done in the middle of the day when we are trying to use the system. Upgrades should always be done overnight when fewest users would be on. This could be my company's issue rather than the system, if it is then please disregard and everything is great.

Overall: Allows easier reconciliation than past systems I have used.

Pros: Definitely a time saver in reviewing recons.
Will save paper.
Easy accessibility for back up preparers, reviewers and auditors to retrieve information.
We do like the option of the template "when it works" to enter large amounts of information.

Cons: There is no place to add comments unless we open an item. We would love to have a general comments section.

Accrual recons are not user friendly if there is a change in a month to month accrual.

If you close an item, there should be an option to hide the previous information. It is confusing to those that aren't regular users of the system.

Overall: Still learning the system. Currently it is providing ease and cuts time in half for reconciliations.

Customer rep. was quick to resolve my issue.

Pros: The ART software is easy to navigate and user-friendly for first timers. I had no issues before and currently.

Cons: The only con I recognize is that every year I tend to forget to change the FY for the new year. I just wished it had a select field like the Reconciliation Period.

Pros: I like that it tracks as a whole what is done and not done. It a good tool to see what exactly has to be done, and also it helps with managers in approving rec's/ Also it help managers identify who is slacking.

Cons: The way you attach back up files is confusing. I think putting in one specified area to put your back up downloaded files would be better. Sometimes the back up is hard to find.

Overall: just helps in keeping track of your work and being able to present it to auditors in a nice complete format.

Fairly easy to use but can be quite slow and clunky.

Pros: ART has place where reconciliations support is saved and attached that make easy for reviewers job easy and eliminated lots of questions to recon prepares.

Cons: too many steps to submit/sign off etc...and once balance is Zero don't understand why ART is updating balance automatically without involving admin.

Overall: one place all reconciliations stores, prepared and submitted.

Pros: It helps us keep our reconciliation processes organized and in good shape. It helps provide a centralized location for supporting documents and allows us to implement more control over the reconciliation process.

Cons: The format of a reconciliation template is somewhat bulky. Something that is more along the lines of an excel spreadsheet would be more user-friendly. It is also cumbersome to edit reconciliation items from a prior month. There seem to be a decent amount of unnecessary work-arounds to complete what should be simple tasks (ie. uploading data, updating or adjusting existing recon items). Lastly, there are regular slow-downs with the software. Long loading periods and session time-outs that occur while the you are actively using the software are relatively common.

Overall: We benefitted greatly from the software because prior to implementation, we were still performing paper recons and filing support physically. The reconciliation process was also somewhat disorganized as it was obviously tough to keep up with so much paper. ART provides us a necessary solution and serves its purpose. It keeps us on track to hit recon deadlines and helps preparers and reviewers alike perform their duties at a sufficient level.

Pros: The skystem took is easy to navigate and user friendly. The reporting structure also looks good. The availability of back up reviewer and preparer function is also helpful.

Pros: The ability to attach all of your backup in the program helps when you are looking for backup. It also helps when you are reconciling off of someone else's reconciliation, you can get an idea of what they had in the account previously.

Cons: Sometimes the process is a bit slow.
After entering each item of the reconciliation, you then have to attach the backup in the documents. The saving process can be very slow.
And when it starts the periodic update, you don't realize it has started if you are working in the system, until you try to save your entries. Then you lose all of the information you had already done.

Pros: I like that if I want to look at prior periods for a specific account, all I have to do is change the date while in the account and there it is.

Overall: Great product, all you need for recons in one package.

Pros: Standardizes process. Every one focused on getting their journal entries in timely. Can tell who is on time and who is behind.

Pros: Art has allowed us real time visibility on the status on reconciliations, where they are in the process. As well as our month-end close schedule checklist. This is a great feature that allows us to stay organized and on-track during this hectic time.

Cons: System Admin feature works okay, but would be great if this feature would allow the admin to review/approve or prepare reconciliations. However, this limitation may be in place as a segregation of duties.

Pros: I like the pie chart feature to easily see what I have in each bucket and then the fact I can just click on the ones I want to see straight from the pie chart. I also like the amortization feature.

Cons: I don't like that I have to add a comment after my corporate reviewer sends an account back for correction before I can send it back to my preparer. It would make much more sense if the account just got kicked all the way back to the preparer and I just got the email notification.

Pros: I like that it organizes information. The system allows you to save permanent items which is great so that you do not have to re-type monthly. It shows you progress in reconciliations.

Cons: I feel that the save process takes a little while. It would be easier if you could enter all information and have it save instead of saving after each line item that you enter.

Overall: Balance sheet reconciliation and being able to review prior months as well

Our experience with Skystem's ART software has been overwhelmingly positive.

Pros: I like the tasks portion. Although we currently use it to track our journal entries, I see it as a great monthend check list.
We have two companies, one on each side of the country and we both use the tool for recon's. It is a great way for the east coast to see the recon's for the west coast without having to travel. Out internal and external auditors have all the recon's at their finger tips along with the sign off trail.

Cons: We need a way to have the preparer "take back" there recon after they submit but before it's reviewed. The instructions can be a little more detailed. We like to read and do ourselves. Helpful tips should be on the site.

Overall: paperless, Central location for all recon's. Although we don't use the tool in the capacity it can be used, we like how the top page gives us uniformity. We have saved time by giving our internal auditors log in's to retrieve what they want instead of the accounting team making copies or sending emails.

ART is a definite improvement from what we were using before for our monthly BS account analyses.

Pros: Ease of use, customer support, and reporting capabilities.

Cons: Within the individual recons, we cannot edit the date of an open item, so items begin aging when they are input, not when they occur. As a result, the aging of items is not truly accurate.

Overall: The ART software was a perfect solution to help automate our company's 400+ balance sheet general ledger reconciliations. The implementation was easy and completed in just one month! The customer support has been excellent; from implementation, training users, and ongoing maintenance, they have been responsive and helped every step of the way. ART is easy to use, has excellent reporting capabilities, and has customizable quality control features. We have been very satisfied with the product!

Recommendations to other buyers: The system is excellent for sharing reconciliations electronically among the department, as well as internal and external auditors.

Comments: ART is a great tool for accounts reconciliation. It really forces you to really look into the account to know what makes up the balance. It is easy to set up users in ART. Users have access right away after they have been set up.
It is easy to assign or reassign accounts to users and the changes take effect right away. No waiting period. Customer support is great. Staff are very accessible and quick in responding to whatever questions we have. It's a great tool for auditing purpose. Audit trail shows the work flow, who, when submits the recon and who when approves the recon so there's accountability. It's great that we can download the reports in excel so can sort or do pivot table or to see what have been done or have not been done.

Comments: I wish we had partnered with SkyStem much earlier! SkyStem ART has been both a valued time-saver and much-appreciated simplifier for our Accounting team. SkyStems's ART system was easy to learn, significantly reduced our team's reconciliation prep time, and has done so at great value. The implementation process and learning curve was straightforward, and their customer service has been outstanding - throughout implementation and ever since. Thank you!

Pros: The ability to attach matching balanced settlements in the system making it easy to research and compare totals.

Cons: Sometimes the staff would get hung up on where to attach a settlement. Once they got used to it they became comfortable with it.

Overall: I had the opportunity to use the ART Skystem system for a couple of years. It was a great system for us being accountable for all the settlements we were responsible for. It was also a great system for our Comptrollers department as well. The system training was top-notch. The customer service was also excellent. Response time would be same day on the occasions we needed assistance. I had the chance to meet Customer support representative and was very impressed with the knowledge she possesses! If you are considering this system I would highly recommend it...!

Recommendations to other buyers: Nancy was fantastic and Linda Adler who was at BMT at the time learned and knew the system very well. Excellent product..!

Comments: We have used the ART product for several years now. We have been pleased since day one. Accounts are reconciled much timelier as opposed traditional paper reconciliations. Further, Management loves the visibility provided by the product. Management can ensure proper and timely completion, verify support is adequate, provide additional staff training when needed, etc. Our Audit department is also a fan because they can retrieve information on demand. This helps them achieve their goals more efficiently and often eliminates much of the administrative burden placed on Accounting when fulfilling Audit documentation requests.

Pros: Clarity and vision into the details of our accounts.

Cons: The UI can get confusing until you get familiar with the layout, but that's because of it's power.

Overall: SkyStem is a fantastic solution for bringing clarity to our close process. We now know our risk with each of our accounts. It never let's us down and gives us the needed credibility with our auditors. Thank goodness for Skystem. We'll be clients for life!

Recommendations to other buyers: Buy it before they realize it's true worth to us accountants and raise the price.

Pros: I like the ability to see all sites across the globe and prove that all reconciliations are completed and reviewed.

Cons: The Taskviewer is not as easy to maintain.

Overall: I love the reconciliation portion of the software. This provides visibility across the globe and provies proof of review. The TaskMaster is not as easy to maintain (this is the journal entry check off list).

Comments: Skystem was the first reconciliation system that I have used. It was a big step up from 3 inch binders.
