Aligning Sales and Finance - From Aggravation to Collaboration

Date: Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST There are no CPE Credits for this Solution Demonstration.
Slower closes, uneven cash flows, diminished customer satisfaction, and sluggish business growth—that’s what happens when Sales, Finance, and Services don’t work closely together. The cost of inefficient communication and miscommunication impacts every company’s bottom line. The tools now exist to help companies realize the benefits of opening and improving communication channels across the enterprise.

Join us to learn how Canto, a global leader in digital asset management, has streamlined the way its finance, sales, and service teams work together. The result: more efficient ways to accelerate key finance and accounting processes. Canto’s improvements in collaboration keep its business operating at top speed, by connecting both processes and people, across sales and finance.

Hans Schaedel, CFO of Canto, will discuss how enhanced levels of collaboration connect people and processes across sales and finance to drive exceptional business performance. You’ll hear how his company leverages technology - including a tool that enables strategic digital chatter - to:

  • Increase the speed of finance and accounting processes with streamlined communication
  • Connect the front-office and back-office to speed approvals, handle exceptions and drive increased revenue
  • Resolve issues that need attention quickly, with notifications and one-click navigation to transactions
  • Keep conversation records tied to specific transactions for later reference
  • Enables organizations to respond faster to trends in key metrics
