Automating the Last Mile of Finance
The term “financial close” describes a corporation’s ability to complete its accounting cycles and produce financial statements for internal management and external legal reporting. The requirement to close books quickly and with quality is a key indicator for the success of a company’s finance function. Recently, there has been an increasing focus on automating the “last mile of finance” with disclosure management solutions, to manage the production, filing, and publication of financial statements and reports, driven in part by the increasing global mandates for companies to submit electronic filings in the XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) format. This half-day seminar will focus on trends, issues, and strategies for accelerating the financial close, with a concentration on automating the financial and regulatory disclosure processes.
