Multicurrency consolidation
ICONS (International Consolidations)is a multi currency multi entity group consolidation application similar to products such as Hyperion.
The version of ICONS featured here is aimed especially to those groups who are currently using spreadsheets to put together their annual / interim group accounts.
Using an innovative design and experience gained over 20 years means that the product manages to provide a level of functionality available at a fraction of the cost of some of the applications marketed today.
With the introduction of IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards), this is an opportune moment to consider this application which is fully compliant with the new requirements.
The British Council operating in 111 countries is one of the larger organisation using ICONS for their annual group consolidation.
