ReconArt was born from the need for satisfaction and comfort - satisfaction in a comprehensive toolset to undertake reconciliations and period close and comfort in a wholesome and sustainable solution that was ready for the future. Manual processes, a multitude of spreadsheets, legacy reconciliation and period close software products with a high cost of ownership, and inboxes bulging with emails that could never be found when auditors asked for proof. These were the frustrations that the principals of ReconArt were dealing with daily and monthly prior to founding ReconArt in 2008. Having spent many years in support of finance and accounting teams, they felt these pains strongly. Just as strongly they were resolute to address these issues for their user community. They vowed to solve these issues and enable finance teams to effectively and efficiently conduct their routine surety work. Just over three years later the launch of the ReconArt™ Total Reconciliation Lifecycle™ into the North American made good on that promise.
