From T&E and payables staff in the back-office to the decision makers in the corner office, the entire finance function is under a tech transformation. Sales and marketing departments were among the first to benefit from the ease of automation. Then, a flurry of tech tools penetrated human resources and other admin areas of the organization. Now it’s finance’s turn.
“Leading this shift and tech transformation for finance teams are the disruptive fintech startups developing software solutions as well as the forward-thinking finance teams striving for greater efficiencies,” said Morrison. “At this event, we are bringing these groups together to talk about how finance organizations are embracing the tech space successfully.”
Attendees are invited for a night of networking and a one-hour panel discussion featuring insights from the region’s best and brightest fintech startups as well as experiences from finance leaders at organizations embracing this transformation. The discussion is specifically focused on the changing role of modern finance teams, real-world insights from businesses automating AP including struggles and successes, streamlining, saving, and efficiencies realized in corporate travel, breaking down internal barriers, and securing buy-in for fintech solutions.
