While being the backbone of many organization’s Offices of Finance and Accounting, it is now commonly acknowledged that this overreliance on Excel spreadsheets coupled with the lack of visibility associated with its use represents a very real risk. With automation available to improve both process efficiency and effectiveness, the challenge many companies face isn’t why they should transform their process but how. The key to overcoming this challenge is creating a strong business case for investment. One that not only sets out the objectives of the project but is also underpinned by a robust financial analysis, in the form of qualitative and quantitative ROI, and a thorough understanding of risk.

One of the most common things we hear when we speak to companies about improving their financial close process through automation is “But I already have an ERP system.” It’s true that an ERP goes a long way towards helping manage some of the financial close process. However, there is still a great deal of work that is taken outside of the ERP each period end and managed manually.

In our previous eBook, “Part 1: Enabling Financial Transformation through Technology,” we examined the “why” of Record to Report transformation and briefly described ‘how” you can achieve this through the implementation of Record to Report technology. Now that you understand the “why” and the “how” it’s time to put it into action to ensure a successful Record to Report transformation delivery. But first we need to lay the framework, as the majority of you have probably never embarked on a financial transformation journey before or have experience with a technology purchase or implementation of this calibre.

Typically, Shared Services Center (SSCs) automation initiatives have been undertaken to reduce costs and improve efficiency. These goals are achieved relatively easily within the first few years, most immediately through reduced labor costs and centralized activities. In fact, standardization and centralization deliver up to 50% savings. During subsequent phases, technology automation and outsourcing cut costs further. But, if cost reduction is the only clearly defined goal, organizations will reach a point of diminishing returns.

In terms of reconciliations, we tend to spend most of our time simply gathering data before we can even begin to think about reconciling it. Once the data is finally in the right format, the majority of our time is then spent manually going through the matching process, rather than spending that time focused on the areas that are most critical to us, as can be seen in the diagram on the right.

"Financial services institutions are high-value targets for cyberattacks because of the capital they control, the personal information on customers they maintain, and the fear an attack on a bank generates in the public. Phishing attacks on FSIs have risen steadily, especially employee credential theft - because once an employee’s credentials are stolen, cyberattackers can access customer information, employee data, even finances. While legacy security solutions claim to block up to 99.9 percent of cyberattacks, all it takes is one employee or contractor to open an email from an unknown source, download a file from a compromised website, or in any other way fall victim to a cyberattack. So, it’s time for a new approach: Isolation, also known as, remote browsing. Download this Financial Services Best Practices Guide to Isolation to learn how to best eliminate phishing attacks and web malware. "

Data inundation and information overload have burdened practically every largescale enterprise today, providing great amounts of detail but often very little context on which executives can act. According to the Harvard Business Review, less than half of an organization’s structured data is actively used in making decisions. The burden is felt profoundly among finance executives, who increasingly require fast and easy access to real-time data in order to make smart, timely, strategic decisions. In fact, 80% of analysts’ time is spent simply discovering and preparing data, and the average CFO receives information too late to make decisions 24% of the time.

In some kinds of more traditional businesses the finance department tends to swallow as much data as is thrown at it but only outputs small, measured and curated amounts of insights periodically: “Here’s revenue vs target in the last quarter”. These are undoubtedly essential for proper business management, But periodic reports also mean it can be too late for the business to respond. It’s like driving by looking only in the rear-view mirror. Looking at what’s behind isn’t going to let you spot a sudden bend in the road! Essentially, the highly competitive and evolved business environment of today requires businesses to have proactive, indicative business metrics. Combined with more traditional metrics, these mean businesses have invaluable and complete insight in order to evaluate performance. Proactive, indicative business metrics are found across most successful businesses–and especially amongst C-suite employees. These people know that the benefits are proven. Analytics-driven execu
