FINANCE AUTOMATION: Thriving in the Age of Change

whitePaper | June 25, 2022

While most accounting teams have replaced their manual accounting practices with an updated, digital version, many are still following the old rules, such as close-related tasks being completed on a certain day of the month. With the use of automated accounting software, those tasks can and should be completed on your schedule not the outdated manual accounting checklist’s schedule. Accounting software that provides order and transparency to your books also lets you spread out the workload over the course of a month. The idea is that close-related work can and should be done continuously, and the team should be preparing for the close for the entire month rather than waiting until the end of it. The resulting monthly close is shorter, and the daily flow of work can be smoother.

The future role of banks

whitePaper | October 6, 2022

Gone are the days of monolithic banking, in which products and services are siloed off from each other, and banks manage their own mainframes. The future of banking is digital, and this demands agile, instant and intelligent IT infrastructure. Established banks will no longer be expected to act alone in developing and distributing products. New models like open banking and real-time payments incentivize banks to collaborate with partners, new start-ups and established players within and beyond the financial services industry. But this future path also poses risks, as any potential collaborator could also be a competitor. Established banks will have to think more like fintechs and challenger banks, while continuing to ensure security, compliance and a full suite of services for consumers and businesses alike.
