The struggle to achieve both speed and accuracy in the financial close process can be challenging. Major stakeholders want the information as fast as possible, but they also need data they can trust. Those working on the close may feel as if they're in a catch-22: pushed to work faster, but with no errors.

During this meeting, members will share how they improved the efficiency and effectiveness of their close process by improving internal communications and leveraging technology. 

After this meeting, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify pain points in their financial close process
  • Explain tactics or methods other members used to improve their financial close process
  • Determine ways to leverage technology to simplify and expedite the financial close process
  • Develop performance metrics to evaluate your close process

We look forward to seeing you on May 21st!
