Leading Global Strategic Advisory Firm and Record-to-Report Cloud Software Provider to Convene Forums on Best Practices for the Financial Close
Dallas, TX - July 10, 2014
Trintech, a leading global provider of integrated software solutions for the Last Mile of Finance™, today announced that it is hosting seminars in 14 cities across the U.S. focused on helping organizations benchmark their financial close process performance and identify how they can increase their efficiency to become a top performer through automation technology. The keynote presentation for each event will be delivered by special guest The Hackett Group, a leading global strategic business advisory firm.
“Finance teams face growing pressures from changing regulations and accounting standards, increasingly complex, global organizations, and constrained budgets,” said Paul Byrne, Trintech CEO. “We find that many finance teams still manage their close process with fragmented systems, point solutions and spreadsheets that reduce overall efficiency, impede visibility and increase risk across the process. At these events, The Hackett Group and Trintech will share lessons and best practices from across industries and map out a path to address these challenges.”
At each seminar, a speaker from The Hackett Group will present key findings from its 2014 Account-to-Report Performance Study, the “State of the Union” on record-to-report process performance assembled by surveying hundreds of companies around the world. The Hackett Group will discussmedian account-to-report performance levels compared with top performers, share key metrics for companies to measure and monitor the performance of their financial processes, and highlight opportunities to exploit technology to increase efficiency and effectiveness.
Delegates will also learn how companies improve efficiency, reduce risk, and create a centralized financial close process that increases visibility through Cadency®, Trintech’s Cloud-based record-to-report automation technology.
“Our mission at The Hackett Group is to evaluate and optimize strategies for operational excellence,” said Bill Marchionni, Finance Operations Advisory Global Practice Leader for The Hackett Group. “The financial close is often inefficient and can be a significant drain on finance teams and budgets. By streamlining and automating this process, organizations can mitigate risk, improve access to information, and reallocate employees to higher-value tasks.”
