The Finance & Accounting Industry


In the finance & accounting sector, the role for accountants is changing significantly. 

Innovation is driving the need for change as clients are using cloud-based technologies. The next 'big thing' is now purchase-to-pay software, which digitalizes & simplifies the entire process even further.

We understand the issues within finance & accounting. We strive to resolve them.

What are the problems in the finance & accounting industry?

Technology is evolving & manual processes are becoming a thing of the past. But without an innovative purchase-to-pay system in place, it can cause lots of issues from staff relationships, right through to missing data & no visibility.

Too many individual processes across different areas of the business

There are often multiple people involved, all with different roles & it can be hard to bridge the gap between finance & budget holders. This can cause issues with confusion & complexity which can have a big impact on staff relationships.

Manual processes often leave room for human error

If any step is manually completed, it leaves a gap for human error in the process. This can cause inefficiency, increased costs & more resources to put correctly. Automation can take all these problems away & make the process seamless.

Time is wasted on menial tasks when it could be better spent elsewhere

Too much time is spent on repetitive tasks that bring no real value to your business. These processes are slow & take up a lot of time that could be spent elsewhere. 

Storage & environmental costs of storing mountains of paper

The amount of paper we can use in finance & accounting is huge! This paired with missing invoices & paperwork can cause delays in payments & cash flow issues. If it was all digitalised, there would be no paper wastage & all the data would be in one place.
