Why CFOs and finance professionals use Sage Intacct
New research by Sage highlights how the role of the CFO and finance function has changed, creating a need for next-generation financial platforms. The responsibilities of today’s redefined CFO and finance professional extend beyond managing and securing their organisations’ finances.
CFOs and finance professionals must be flexible enough to adapt to new challenges and ways of working and growth opportunities. Increasingly, they need to nurture non-traditional skills that help them navigate complex, technologically enabled industries and deliver digitalisation initiatives.
Beyond increasing sales and revenue, CFOs’ and finance leaders' top priorities are upgrading software and technology solutions to drive digitalisation, integrating emerging technologies and developing new products and services. The research shows that 78% of finance leaders believe the financial industry needs a new breed of CFO to build a successful digital future, while 75% of CFOs say their responsibility for digital transformation has increased in the last year alone.
“Today’s CFOs and finance professionals must blend attributes that allow them to engage in cross-functional decision making, operate with purpose, and future-proof their organisations,” says Hartman. “These executives play a multifaceted role in guiding their organisations toward productivity, equity, and innovation. A cloud-based system like Sage Intacct supports their expanded role, putting the right digital tools at finance leaders’ fingertips to drive greater agility and improved current and forward-looking visibility for enhanced decision making.”
“Our expansion into Mauritius, Namibia, and Botswana demonstrates our commitment to the regions, by creating customers for life and adding value to their businesses, together with our Business Partners and through the use of our Sage software solutions.” concludes Hartman.
