The finance and accounting (F&A) function has been transformed by technology over the last decade. This back-office function plays a critical role in supporting strategic business decision-making, improving business profitability, increasing shareholder value, and optimizing working capital. Still, finance professionals today are under pressure to improve operations and cut costs even further.
Automation is enabling F&A to play this role in a much more efficient and effective manner. The F&A value chain is full of processes that are terrific candidates for Robotic Process Automation (RPA), according to a new report by the Everest Group.
