From good to great: Financial close learnings from the top-performers

About this event

How does the financial close process in your organisation compare to the high-performing companies across Nordics? What can we learn from the top performers regarding processes and technology applications?

This joint Aico and EY Finland webinar will look at the Closing Excellence Survey 2021 results. A comprehensive study conducted by EY across Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark was dedicated to continuous improvement of the financial close process.

Our guest speakers from EY will break down the survey results to show the following:

  • The average time companies spend on performing closing, consolidation and reporting every month.
  • The average cost to perform the finance function as a percentage of revenue.
  • The main IT and internal challenges associated with financial close.
  • Key differences between the top-performing companies and the population's average.

In the second part of the webinar, we will demonstrate how Aico financial close platform enables companies to overcome some of the key challenges to improve their processes.

We will address these topics:

  • Automation of processes
  • Increased IT integrations
  • Standardisation through technology
