Digitising Finance Processes. Rethinking Finance.

22nd April | 11:00 a.m. BST
Live Webinar

It’s well established that automation and AI can help improve process efficiency and access to data at speed. But finance continues to lag in technology adoption compared to other areas of business. “It’s too complex and expensive” or “we’re not big enough to benefit” are myths we often hear.

Manual finance processes, particularly around supplier invoices and employee expenses, have compounded the challenges facing many businesses over the last year. Let 2021 be the catalyst for change.

Join Ryan Demaray, MD at SAP Concur, and Ian McBane, Business Services & Outsourcing Partner at BDO, as they share advice on maximising productivity from your function through technology, as well as new research that shows what we can learn from high performing finance teams.

 You’ll hear:

  • Why a digital transition has gone from a ‘nice to have’ to a ‘must have’ for finance teams today
  • The automation myths that block change and hold the finance team back
  • How best-in-class businesses are able to achieve a 25% increase in both profitability and productivity
  • The data insights that a digitised spend process can deliver to significantly impact your business results
