Michael Shultz, Director of Finance Transformation

Reconciliations play a vital role to the overall financial statement close process. Improperly done they can lead to errors and open you up to risk. However, properly managed they can result in unexpected value that stretches well beyond the SSC. In this session we will discuss the need for global standardization of the balance sheet reconciliation process which can lead to compliance with policies, reduction of risk and visibility into the global close process. Join Mandy Strider, Director of Accounting, Interstate Hotels as she describes their journey to an improved close through standardization and the use of a cloud automation tool. And listen in as Michael Shultz, of BlackLine, looks at how existing technology can modernize your reconciliation and close operations and automate your period-end processes. And consider how technology can significantly reduce errors while speeding up work, allowing more time for review, investigation, and analysis.

One of the most common things we hear when we speak to organizations about improving their financial close process through automation is “We already have an ERP to control manage our Close and Reconciliation information”. It’s true, an ERP goes a long way towards helping manage parts of the financial close process. However, there is still a significant amount of work that is taken outside of the ERP each period end and managed manually, increasing the risks of your financial data.

It’s no secret that there has been one topic in the finance community that has been growing louder and louder: Robotic Process Automation, or RPA. However, Trintech takes RPA one step further with Risk Intelligent RPA™ (RI RPA). But what is RI RPA, how does it affect the close process, and how are other companies currently utilizing automation to transform their financial close? Simply put, Risk Intelligent RPA allows your organization to live in a risk-based world. One where the robots know the tolerances that are allowed according to your organization’s policies and automatically runs activities, only notifying a person when there is a core issue to be resolved. This not only delivers improved value to the business but is also the type of high value work most likely to attract and retain high quality people. Join this webinar to learn: • What is Risk Intelligent Robotic Process Automation™ • How RI RPA can transform your finance organization • How organizations are currently utilizing RI RPA • Why a RI RPA approach is critical to your success

Value Creation

If you’re a leader within shared services, you are increasingly being asked not just to reduce costs but to “give hours back” to the business and improve the speed and quality of service delivery. While the first wave of RPA was predominantly a narrowly deployed cost-cutting tool, technology advancements that pre-package solutions (e.g., AP, O2C, etc) and enable faster deployment and better scalability make RPA a more powerful capability for wider SS transformation. Bigger impact RPA requires some form of Center of Excellence (CoE) and a roadmap for scaling from early stage to maturity.
