THE TOPIC

Digitalising the finance department: opportunities vs challenges

2020 is approaching, and large corporations are looking at ways to digitise b2b finance. On one side is the thrilling opportunity of freeing up working capital, reducing paper invoices and wasted time shuffling through duplicates. On the other is the challenge of collaborating with IT departments, getting the executive buy-in, while keeping an eye out for risks such as cybercrime.

  • Which technologies should be at the top of the list for finance innovation?
  • Are finance teams keeping up with regards to digital transformation compared to other functional groups?
  • What is the most challenging aspect of digitalizing the finance function?
  • Does automating payments actually optimize existing payment systems?
  • Can a company cut costs by automating payments? Which ones?
