Session overview

As accountants who work long hours to get those books closed, checked and published you know too well what a drain on your resources this period can be.  How can organisations leverage the latest tools on the market to ensure that governance, compliance, standardisation and efficiency work hand in hand with their businesses?

Technology that automates close tasks is a more efficient approach than using excel. Software can now provide workflow,  trigger alerts, and link dependencies’ seamlessly, enabling you to close faster. Also, if you are running SAP as your ERP you can utilise a powerful solution that runs inside SAP, BlackLine Smart Close.  This software incorporates RPA technology to reduce transaction costs, eliminate errors, accelerate the close and free up more of the accountants time.

Join this webinar to hear how organisations are benefitting from improving their close task management and implementing RPA technology that can typically automate up to 80% of close tasks.
