Survey of 500 Senior Finance Leaders in the UK: 

 

“Those at the forefront of digitalisation understand the benefits that automation and cloud bring to the finance function. The rest of the finance community are very fast followers because best practices spread.”

Jonathan Howell, Group CFO, Sage

 

It is no secret that financial leaders in the UK are aware of the benefits of digitalisation. Automation, AI, and analytics have transformed and will continue to change the way the finance function operates.

The pandemic has proved that tailored digital capabilities not only speed up repetitive processes – freeing up teams to focus on more analytical problem-solving – they also give the finance function a competitive edge through the insights they provide.

When Covid-19 hit, financial orgnaisations that had already completed their digital transformation were in a much stronger position to provide guidance to their C-suites, fundamentally giving them an advantage over their less digitalised competitors.

The pandemic has shown the need for financial organisations to be reactive and agile, by having effective digital transformation capabilities in place. A recent report conducted by Sage, in partnership with the Financial Times has these fond these four core findings:

 

 

The CFO’s number one goal is now driving Digital Transformation

 

51% of senior finance leaders said the demand from stakeholders for more real-time, up-to-date data increased during the pandemic

 

52% say talent gaps have proven a major impediment to digital adoption

 

40% say their inability to access real-time financial data and insight is the most difficult part of their jobs today

 

Are you experiencing any of the same challenges within your organisation?
