Venue: Le Meurice


Imagine you could have real-time visibility of your financial results at the touch of a button. If you could look at your balance sheet, at any point in time and manage risk in a controlled automated fashion, how much would that improve efficiency and decision making?

This is continuous accounting and it’s about to transform how finance and accounting think about their work and their role in the business.

Join us on 11 July to discuss what it means to close smarter by choosing a cloud software that enables your legacy ERP(s) to work better for you without the involvement of time stretched IT resources.

Throughout the evening we will be discussing how to make automating the close, balance sheet reconciliation and other back-end processes, as well as reporting on-the-fly, a reality.
