5 Steps to Financial Close Process Optimization

Date: Thursday, December 6, 2018
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
The financial close is a significant challenge for virtually all accounting and finance organizations, but why is that? The financial close isn’t just a single process, but a series of interconnected and interdependent processes that must work in concert in order to produce an organization's financial reports. It is also time expensive, possibly delaying critical business decisions and depriving the organization the value-added time it needs to analyze financial information. Optimizing the financial close requires a concerted effort in aligning people, process, and technology in order to produce real change.

Join us on this webinar where we discuss 5 steps you can take to optimize your financial close including:
  1. Assessing and documenting the process to help identify dependencies and bottlenecks
  2. Targeting key areas of constraint to get the greatest impact
  3. Aligning your people to succeed
  4. Aligning the process to be effective
  5. Leveraging technology to automate repetitive tasks
