Fortunately, there are ways to overcome some of these hurdles. And while the transition to a virtual professional world isn’t easy, it is possible to streamline what might feel like chaos into a strategic working model that delivers a competitive advantage.

Thriving in an era of disruption

To thrive in the midst of heightened uncertainty, risk, and accelerating change, organisations must move toward what we at BlackLine call Modern Accounting. This begins with adapting to changing circumstances through better collaboration, visibility, and control.

Doing this successfully all comes down to implementing the right technology. Using automation platforms and cloud-based software, businesses can reduce the strain their teams are facing by reducing manual processes, automating key deliverables, simplifying administrative tasks and enabling teams to seamlessly access systems remotely.

All of this frees up valuable resources, allowing finance and accounting (F&A) teams to spend less time on routine, manual tasks and more time providing analysis and insights that can help the business thrive.
