Tired of everyone telling you that you need to modernize your accounting operations, but not telling you how to actually do it? Attend this non-technical, but technology-focused session to actually work through creating an innovation strategy and developing a plan for modernizing the way you provide accounting services with the latest accounting technologies. Learn to revamp your firm or finance department's service offerings to reduce your staff's workload while allowing your staff to focus on more value-added areas like financial planning & analysis and decision support. While automation technologies come with some cost, they greatly reduce manual labor and risk of error when integrated well. By providing more holistic services, to your "clients", you can help them improve their overall performance and better position yourself to be a trusted advisor-can you afford not to attend this session?
