Creating Organisational Resilience in the Finance Function

 The recent global pandemic illuminated a lot of cracks in businesses, forcing them to react fast. While many have been able to weather the storm, it has still been a warning for future disruptions.  

For this reason, finance and IT leaders need to be proactive and take the necessary steps to ensure that they’re not caught flat-footed next time. The key to being prepared is having technologies that allow companies to adapt to new realities quickly and effectively.

  • Which technologies are companies prioritising to enhance their finance functions?
  • How can digital transformation scale operations and create a better way to distribute funds throughout the supply chain?
  • How can putting suppliers first strengthen business performance?
  • What immediate actions can finance and IT leaders take to be better prepared for the next catastrophe?
