Compiere doesn't do core banking. It is capable of it, the but has never been field tested. It has all the core functionality that is required and implentation can be undertaken by Compiere. It has built in security in both the application and the database and building out funcionality is relatively straight forward. And Compiere's access to the current Business intellegence tool makes reporting and KPI dashboards first rate.

Compiere supports parallel accounting standards for any combination of the following:
• Accrual and cash-based accounting
• Multiple accounting standards (e.g., US GAAP, UK SAP, German HGB)
• Multiple inventory costing methods (e.g., Standard, Average, FIFO)
Usually, a “Set of Books” is defined as a set of transactions with the same Chart of Accounts, Calendar, Accounting Currency, Accounting Standard and Costing Method. Compiere addresses situations where this is not sufficient with support for parallel accounting through the concept of an Accounting Schema. An Accounting Schema is any combination of the following:
Chart of Accounts
• Accrual or Cash-based accounting
• Accounting standard
• Costing method
• Accounting currency
Compiere can have multiple COA's for many reasons, budgeting alternate divisions or companies
In contrast to a “Set of Books”, a Calendar is not directly part of an Accounting Schema, meaning you may have multiple calendars per accounting schema. The calendar is reduced to transaction support functions including open/close periods, summary postings and allocation definition for ease of entry.
Compiere can consolidate across multiple organisations. It can also consolidate multiple departments. When the enrties are made automatically the reports will reflect the necessary changes to the accounts. The reports can be tailored to the enterprises reporting requirements.
