The Risks of Using Manual Processes for Period-End Tasks

Date: Wednesday, February 6, 2019
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Manual processes may be costing your team more than just valuable hours. When accounting teams rely too heavily on spreadsheets for managing period-end tasks, they may unknowingly put your business at significant risk for financial statement inaccuracies and noncompliance; in addition, unstandardized processes can hinder growth and breed inefficiency.

During this webinar, we will identify some of the warning signs that manual processes are putting your organization at risk and discuss why now is the time to explore modern alternatives that can save you time and money, accelerate the business, and improve financial controls.
This webinar will cover several topics, including:
The warning signs that manual finance and accounting processes are putting your organization at risk
How moving to a modern cloud solution can reduce risk and enhance visibility with real-time data
How automation can transform finance and accounting into a strategic business partner
