Sponsored by Vena
DATE: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2019
TIME: 2:00 PM ET
DURATION: 1 HOUR

Webcast Summary

Financial planning and analysis (FP&A) are among the most crucial skills finance teams bring to their companies. Finance teams help inform their companies' strategic decisions not only by interpreting financial data but also by outlining future scenarios and advising how their companies ought to plan for them. 

But many finance teams are unable to focus on forward-looking endeavors because they continue to spend most of their time gathering and verifying the accuracy of the data they require for FP&A.

During this Webcast, we will reveal how finance teams can establish FP&A as a priority by streamlining administrative tasks, including data collection. We will discuss:

  • How to determine which activities your finance team performs are the best candidates for automation,
  • Which aspects of FP&A are essential for finance teams to develop in-house, and
  • How to apply the latest methodologies and technological advances to accelerate the timeframe in which your finance team contributes value to your company through FP&A.
