fund accounting

Fund accounting systems makes your business smarter

In my company, we work a lot with fund accounting systems. To those who don’t know much about this, it is a system to emphasize accountability and not so much about profitability. Due to this, it is also often used by non-profit organizations and the government. Besides having the mentioned purpose, fund accounting can also be used in the industry of investment accounting when companies account for a portfolio of investments, such as securities and commodities.

System operating with fund accounting such as the “General Ledger Manager” offered by the company SimCorp, it is possible for your company to automate your general ledger workflows. No matter if the postings you want to analyze is in the form of financial transactions or general ledger transactions, you will be able to create, track and maintain multiple interfaces for the postings export. You can do all this without the need of any programming knowledge! All the technical aspects have already been taking care of!

Inspireret Inspiration

At være en inspireret person er noget, de fleste stræber efter at blive. I vores hurtigt voksende og stigende internationale verden, er ideer og integritet noget der bliver værdsat højt. Men hvordan bliver du “inspireret”? Nogle mennesker er helt simpelt, født inspireret. Disse mennesker har endeløse ideer og kreative tanker. Andre bliver nødt til at arbejde hårdt og kigge dybere for at opnå det sted, hvor de finder inspirationen og deres “flow”. Sidst men ikke mindst har nogle – og jeg tror at de fleste tilhører denne gruppe – behov for at arbejde rigtig hårdt for at finde inspiration. For disse mennesker er det, at blive inspireret, en livslang opgave der kræver kontinuerligt læsning af bøger og artikler, rejser og søgen efter andre mennesker – med formålet om at finde en værdifuld inspiration.

For nylig læste jeg et studie der varmede mit hjerte en smule og samtidig opfyldte min endeløse søgen efter nye ideer og læring. Jeg læste et studie der er udgivet af det psykologiske institut på Harvard, som påstår at dagdrømme, det stadie hvor dine tanker bare kører rundt uden formål, rent faktisk kan få din hjerne til at komme op med ideer på helt egen hånd.

På grund af ovenstående tog jeg denne beslutning: Jeg besluttede mig for at rejse til Afrika, så jeg kan komme af med den stress og de distraktioner jeg har for tiden – og i stedet nyde alle de oplevelser der hører med en rejse. Mit mål er at lukke ned for min hjerne og lade mig selv blive opslugt af en adventure rejse.

Jeg håber på at få inspiration af wildlife rejserne på min rejse til Afrika. Hvis ikke, så gætter jeg på at det blot betyder at jeg må arbejde dét hårdere for at finde den der magiske inspiration.

What is News?

What News is, is different and it totally depends on whom you ask. To some it might be the News shown on TV, and to others it might be the latest gossip from your nearest friends. To me news is what you make of it, and the best news I know is something I can use in my everyday life. The last time I really felt like seeing good and useable news was when I heard of a Facebook Ad Manager. In my work I am into social media management, so this tool was really something and a very hot topic in my department for a long time. At first it was very new to many of my colleagues, but now that it is fully implemented and people trust it, it is some of the best tools we have ever invested in. The tool allows us to take full control over our social media management, and that is interesting especially when we can figure out so many things, everything from finding the right social audience for our brand to how a text should attract the relevant audience. That is something everybody today wants: to show their customers the most relevant products presented in the right way, instead of being just some company on the market.
