Survive and thrive by harnessing the power of digital technology

About this webinar

A recent Deltek Clarity Survey showed that professionals in the engineering industry are already grappling with technological innovation and industry disruption.

Survey respondents spoke about their teams being connected but not completely integrated and this is throwing up a whole new set of issues. Around 72 percent of the engineering sector respondents acknowledge the benefits of digitisation and consider AI as very important. Also, the survey showed that accounting and finance teams are one of the top two areas of the business that many respondents identified as most reliant on manual data entry (77 percent), the other being procurement at 79 percent.

Layer on the added pressure brought about by the current pandemic – and it’s no surprise that many CEOs and senior managers are seeking advice and assistance to steer their companies through this challenging environment.

In this webinar, you will hear from our expert panel of CEOs and CFOs who will draw on their vast experience and specialist knowledge to answer some of the questions industry leaders face today.
