Series Overview

While the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic may be behind us, recovery has been slower than expected and the delta variant is keeping companies on their toes. Business success is more precarious than ever, and it has never been more important for leaders to keep on top of company finances.

As compared to other business functions, finance teams are slow at innovating. As a result, while digitisation is being used across other functions to streamline operations and drive efficiency, finance teams are still spending a disproportionate amount of time on manual data entry and other time-consuming tasks that deliver little to no material value to the company.

With technology, finance teams are able to automate time-consuming, monotonous tasks like cash-flow management, giving them more time to focus on delivering strategic, business-valuable work.

In Soldo’s Original Series “CFO strategy for success in the digital, post-pandemic world” you’ll get everything you need to prepare your finance team for success in the digital world. In Episode 1, explore the business case for developing a scalable, digital-first finance function and get tried-and-tested strategies for rolling out digitisation in your team. In Episode 2, we’re discussing ‘red flags’ to look out for during the pandemic recovery phase and exploring the digital tools available to help you better manage cash flow in the face of uncertainty. Finally, in Episode 3, explore how digital transformation can be harnessed to empower your finance team to acquire a new, more strategic and business-critical function.

Watch the series to get everything you need to prepare your finance division for the digital future of the business.

Designing a scalable, digital-first finance function
Filming: September 21, 2021, 11:00am - 12:30pm BST

Finance teams power expansion for fast-growing companies by laying the groundwork for scale with business processes and reporting, and by supporting strategic decision-making in areas such as fundraising and cashflow.

In the digital era, CFOs of growing companies have the dual challenge of scaling the operational capabilities of their team while providing strategic advice to the wider management team.

To successfully juggle these challenges, finance operations need to be streamlined, automating time-consuming, monotonous tasks to empower the team to take a more strategic function within the company. Digitisation gives finance teams access to more data than ever before. With the right tools, this data can provide a real time view of exactly what’s happening in the organisation. What’s more, digitising these processes is a smart risk management move, eliminating the risk of human error from business critical tasks like cash-flow management and financial reporting.

In this episode of Soldo’s Original Series “CFO strategy for success in the digital, post-pandemic world,” you’ll hear from leading finance decision-makers about the digital future of finance and how to gear your team up for successful growth.

Join this session to explore:

  • Gearing up for growth: choosing tools that can support your team as it grows
  • Resource planning and other areas to automate
  • Enabling your ‘lean’ finance function to deliver maximum value
  • Common digitisation pitfalls and how to avoid them
  • And more
Cash-flow management for the digitised world
Filming: October 19, 2021, 11:00am - 12:30pm BST

Having cash on hand has never been more important than it is today. The Covid-19 pandemic is set to cost businesses a huge $1.1 trillion in lost revenue, and with the recovery being uneven, margins in businesses across industries are narrower than ever.

With an uncertain economic outlook businesses need to keep on top of cash-flow to ensure they can survive whatever lies ahead. Evaluating the balance sheet to eliminate unnecessary expenses can be a good first step to unlocking working capital. By ramping up credit control, businesses can ensure invoices are paid on time, side-stepping the risks arising from late payments.

When conducted manually, these tasks can be time-consuming and prone to errors. Automating finance makes cash-flow management easier and more efficient. With access to real-time data, teams can quickly monitor the company’s financial health and run reports to identify areas for improvement.

In this episode of Soldo’s Original Series “CFO strategy for success in the digital, post-pandemic world,” you’ll explore the benefits of automation in finance and get tried-and-tested approaches to kick-start your journey to digitised finance.

Join the session to explore:

  • Curbing your finance team’s administrative burdens to encourage better decision-making
  • Cutting corporate procurement costs: how to optimise cash flow and resource allocation
  • Harnessing agile ways of working to ensure your team is ready for its digital future
  • And more
