Strategies for achieving the promises of Finance Transformation

About this event


The PwC Finance Benchmarking Report suggests that automation can transform finance departments by freeing up valuable time for finance professionals to focus on more strategic initiatives.

Gartner concurs noting that CFO priorities for 2023 put the transformation of the finance function very high on the agenda of CFOs. Gartner says automation will reshape transaction processing functions such as procure to pay (P2P) and order to cash (O2C) with specialist teams on process excellence, data governance and application management.

You are cordially invited to a closed-door roundtable discussion that will not only discuss the transformative power of automation in streamlining finance processes, but also reveal best practices in integrating technology-led solutions into their financial systems, eliminating manual tasks, and optimizing workflows. 

Discussions will revolve around the benefits and challenges of automation and how it enhances financial agility and efficiency, as well as proven solutions that Grab itself has taken as part of its own transformation journey. Among the topics to be discussed include:

  • Priorities and tactics for transforming the finance function
  • Mitigating human errors through finance process automation – what works so far
  • Priorities for futureproofing the finance team


Join us on 27 September 2023 as we discuss best practices and proven tactics in achieving the aspirational goals of digital transformation by digital transformation
