The full agenda:
09:00-09:20: How Digital Transformation Enables Financial Confidence
Over the last years, the role of the finance team has evolved to be more strategic and focused on value-creation, rather than focusing tactically on the numbers.
However, as data volumes increase and you have to juggle data from multiple disconnected applications, making the leap from tactical to strategic can be a real challenge.
Organisations who have successfully made this shift, have typically embraced digital transformation as a catalyst to ensure they have the right tools and processes in place to treat data as an asset and use it to drive more effective business decisions.
Join Dafydd Llewellyn, GM EMEA at insightsoftware to learn how and why reaching digital maturity leads to better financial performance and decision making. Additionally, you'll discover how insightsoftware can support you along this journey by automating and accelerating processes across financial reporting, budgeting and planning, close and consolidation, tax and transfer pricing, and disclosure management.
9:20 am – 9.30 am: Break and opportunity to use virtual networking tables
9:30 am – 9:50 am: Automate Your Year-End Reporting Process
Does it take you 20 days, 30 days, or even longer to complete your year-end close?
Do you spend hours, if not days, consolidating multiple subsidiaries, each running in different financial management systems, and yet you still don’t feel confident in the integrity of your data?
At this engaging session you'll discover how implementing automated, accurate and repeatable processes can remove the stress from your year-end reporting and give you complete confidence in the accuracy of your data.
Find out how implementing the right tool can enable you to directly access real-time data from multiple systems and create error-free, refreshable reporting in minutes–so you can become the strategic adviser your business needs to deliver the greatest return on investment (ROI).
Transform your Planning, Budgeting, and Reporting Approach in 2022
It’s that time of year. Are you currently working on your 2022 budget, but spending too much time putting together the data, leaving too little time for analysis?
With many organizations still relying on manual spreadsheets for planning, budgeting, and forecasting, it’s no surprise that these manual planning processes are frequently time-consuming, error-prone, and struggle to scale as the number of planning participants increases.
Join this breakout to ensure you have the right processes and technology in place to generate effective plans that position your organisation for a successful 2022. Discover how you can:
Adopt an integrated, flexible, and accurate planning process.
Enhance your existing spreadsheet models with a scalable and agile planning solution.
Incorporate input and commentary from stakeholders, update forecasts more frequently, and model multiple scenarios to prepare for potential future outcomes.
09:50 – 10:00: Break and opportunity to use networking tables to meet today's speakers and fellow members
10:00 – 10:30 Panel Session: Driving More Effective Decisions With Agile Planning and Reporting
According to the latest FSN “Agility in Planning, Budgeting, and Forecasting (PBF)” and “Agility in Financial Reporting and Consolidation” surveys, 84% of organizations recognise that improving the relevance of data captured is the most fundamental area that needs to change to improve agility, yet data errors affect reporting agility in 72% of cases.
Join Gary Simon, CEO of FSN, John Brooks, Director of Solution Engineering at insightsoftware and Harald Fruehwacht, Senior Strategist at insightsoftware as they ask, “how agile is your organization?” Using results from FSN’s recent surveys, Gary, John, and Harald will look at:
Techniques you can use to improve the agility of your reporting, planning, budgeting, and forecast (PBF) processes. How well your organization stacks up against FSN’s “agility dial.”
Why completing a digital transformation journey and having access to advanced, specialized tools is essential for reaching data maturity and effectively supporting your business to drive faster, more accurate decisions.
