The Future Accountant: Unlocking time and resources to gain a competitive advantage
Xledger is hosting an insightful panel discussion on The Future Accountant – Unlocking time and resources to gain a competitive advantage.
While 2021 was beset with socioeconomic turbulence, 2022 offers renewed optimism and growth potential. With many firms and their clients adopting a hybrid working model across multiple time zones and geographies, it has never been more important for accountants to be equipped with accurate data and technology to ensure streamlined workflows and error-free data.
According to a recent study, employees spend approximately 416 hours a year on repeated efforts that could be automated while more research shows that around 90% of spreadsheets used in finance functions contains errors. In order to gain a competitive advantage in the future, firms must be able to unlock time and resources for themselves as well as for their clients, in exchange for more strategic and meaningful work.
In this webinar, we will discuss:
– Why accountants must strive for a consolidated view of their client’s data
– How automation can lead the way for more strategic work
– The importance of error-free data in a digital world
– Looking ahead: the future of accountancy and key insights for 2022
