Rising to the top of the CFO’S Agenda: Driving greater value with AR automation

Accounting and finance (A&F) professionals have moved on from tasks simply “keeping the lights on” and are increasingly expected to perform a wide range of duties, from safeguarding balance sheet integrity to optimizing the company’s financial health.

Automation enables finance professionals to ensure the organization’s day-to-day financial health and lay the foundation for working capital optimization. The increased reliance on technology has shifted the role of CFOs and other finance leaders, with Brian Morgan, director of product marketing AR with BlackLine, noting that many finance professionals are transitioning to a CEO role. “I saw a report last year that — at least in the U.K.— 23% of new CEOs came from the CFO role. That is the real picture of how the controller role has evolved.”

Explore more insights from the recent Blackline webinar “Rising to the Top of the CFO’s Agenda: Driving Greater Value with AR Automation” and uncover how automation can help CFO’s balance their shifting priorities with more agility.
