Armanino’s Revenue Recognition Solution for Microsoft Dynamics AX Now Available on Microsoft’s AppSource

SAN RAMON, Calif. (November 10, 2016)Armanino LLP, the largest independent accounting and business consulting firm based in California, announced today that its Revenue Recognition Management solution for Microsoft Dynamics AX 7 and Dynamics 365 is now available on Microsoft’s AppSource. This solution was designed for the unique needs of companies that sell multi-element arrangements (MEAs) that may include hardware, software, services, prepaid support tickets, and post contract support such as warranties or maintenance agreements.

“With Microsoft’s launch of Dynamics 365, Armanino is proud to announce its Revenue Recognition Management app is available in the Microsoft AppSource,” said Tom Mescall, partner in charge of Armanino’s Consulting department. “We worked with our CPAs and experts to ensure rich capabilities to streamline management of revenue recognition in a compliant manner. Your company can leverage our solution and our breadth of technical accounting and business process expertise to move your business forward and meet the ASC 605 and 606 requirements.”

Armanino provides a full breadth of Revenue Recognition audit and consulting services, including:

  • ASC 605, 606 and IFRS 15 risk assessment and roadmap
  • Outsourced skilled staff to process transactions
  • Technical memo preparation
  • Implementation of Revenue Recognition Management software module
  • Data migration and process workflow creation
  • Establishment and recurring testing of internal controls, including segregation of duties

Companies that sell bundled products such as hardware, software, services, prepaid support tickets, warranties and maintenance agreements must be able to break out these multi-element orders to recognize revenue based on company and industry specific guidelines such as vendor specific objective evidence (VSOE) to comply with US GAAP. Armanino’s solution eliminates the challenges manufacturing companies face when trying to comply with revenue recognition guidelines.

“Companies with multi-year contracts must start now with the transition to the new revenue recognition rules,” said John Dunican, Partner and Leader, CFO Advisory Practice at Armanino. “You have to know what the revenue will look like for contracts you are signing today.”

With Armanino’s Revenue Recognition Management module, companies can:

  • Increase productivity through process automation, scalability and standardization
  • Reduce the risks associated with a reliance on spreadsheets, manual processes and prevent account error and restatements
  • Ensure timely revenue recognition and faster close process
  • Gain accuracy and visibility into revenue forecasts, revenue recognition and financial reporting
  • Rapidly deploy best-in-class revenue recognition management functionality directly in Microsoft Dynamics AX

Armanino’s Revenue Recognition Management app has been enhanced to support expanded requirements brought about by the new GAAP and IFRS standards including ASC 605, 606 and IFRS 15.  The solution gives users the ability to reallocate revenue across multiple sales contracts as a single multi-element agreement.
