Why should you attend this course?

Over time, knowledge of the Paprika system can dilute, especially as you bring people into the agency and others move on to pastures new. This seminar is designed to refresh your agency staff, and increase their understanding and expertise when reconciling their agency data or performing month-end procedures.

Who should attend this course?

If you have a working knowledge of Paprika reconciliation and month-end procedures but are stumped when your trial balance figure doesn’t agree with you expenses detail report – this course is for you. Working through numerous scenarios, Volker will show you some handy tools and reports that can help you identify the problem and correct the error in your data.

Please be aware that this course is an intermediate level and all attendees must have a working knowledge of reconciliations and month-end procedures in Paprika.

Who is the course leader?

Volker Bendel, Head Training & Implementation Consultant at Paprika will be leading this interactive session. Having been with Paprika for over 15 years, he is our most senior trainer and consultant. Benjamin Baker, part of the Client Engagement team, will be assisting Volker throughout the session. Having previously worked on the Help Desk, what Ben and Volker don’t know about Paprika reconciliation and month-end, isn’t worth knowing.


What do I need to bring with me?

At the end of the session you will receive a comprehensive training manual which covers all of the scenarios discussed throughout the duration of the seminar.

Email to the boss

Some bosses need convincing, so feel free to copy and paste this persuasive argument into an email to your boss:



Paprika are running a half day Acceleration Seminar on the 23rd May which focuses on reconciliation and speeding up month-end processes. It would be beneficial for myself and the team at [INSERT AGENCY NAME] to attend the seminar and advance our Paprika skills.

The course costs £125 for a single ticket or just £100 per person on a team ticket, which is a small price to pay when it could help us speed-up our month-end procedure.
