5 Questions CFOs Should Ask Their Controllers

As the office of the controller becomes ever more strategic in how they help drive growth and profitability, the financial organization’s relationship to the controller role must evolve as well.

Today’s CFO needs to work closely with the controller to ensure that the controller’s office is operating at the highest levels of efficiency and accuracy.

Here are the five questions to initiate a conversation around best practices:

1.How many manual journal entries are we making during the closing process?
2.Have you reviewed compliance with local jurisdictions?
3.How long does it take to close our books? (And what’s holding things up?)
4.Are we using Excel? (If so, why?)
5.Can we integrate our financial information and our operating metrics?

Download our white paper in which we explore the answers to these five questions with your controller, the key takeaways you can expect, and how they will help create a stronger, more effective financial structure.5-questions-cfos-should-ask-controllers
