    Tech-Savvy CFO: Agility, Scalability, and Future-proofing
    People talk a lot these days about the speed in which the business landscape changes and how companies need to be nimble or agile—able to quickly adjust tactics to take advantage of changes in the marketplace, and to stay ahead of the competition. From the CFO’s perspective, what underpins the ability to change, to grow, and to be prepared for an increasingly uncertain future? Generally, the answer lies somewhere in people, processes, and technology. Peter Wagner, the director of marketing at AcctTwo, examines the technology and how it can drive agility, scalability, and future-proofing.

    Empowering Tech-Savvy CFOs
    While some CFOs count themselves amongst the more tech-savvy people in an organization, many tend to be quite risk averse by nature—and therefore—late technology adopters. However, today’s business landscape is changing—how customers evaluate products, the volume of real-time data available to chart the course of your business, and the mobile access employees have to critical systems.

    The same technology driving this wave of change and challenge can also be the rising tide that propels CFOs forward. Learn why today’s CFOs are increasingly becoming tech-savvy individuals that enjoy seeking out ways technology can make them more productive at home and at work.

    Scaling Finance from $0 to $100m in ARR
    Over the years, Intacct has worked closely with hundreds of founder teams and startups to help them scale their businesses—from raising the first rounds of financing to expanding their companies—and, for some, completing successful IPOs. Check out some of the principles and strategies we’ve learned and refined for scaling finance through a company’s growth phases.

    New CEO Requirements Demand a Tech-Savvy CFO
    Stacy Schuettler, president of LBMC Technology Solutions, discusses how more CFO’s are expanding their focus beyond the traditional limits of governance and regulatory requirements, adding significantly more value to their role by contributing as a strategic growth partner, and harnessing technology to do it; changing requirements from CEOs now mandate this.

    Tech-Savvy CFOs Take the Progress Option
    Change is inevitable; progress is VITAL! Cloud accounting is progress. In fact, the biggest risk your company faces regarding cloud accounting is not making the move before your competition does. Don’t risk being left behind and becoming obsolete.

    Philip Massey, president and founder of Massey Consulting, discusses why today's CFOs need to be educated about the risks and benefits of cloud solutions to make rational, informed decisions.

    How Tech-Savvy CFOs Make the Most of Their Financial Metrics
    We’ve made the case for years: There’s a huge opportunity and need for CFOs to become more strategic to their organizations.
    We all agree that financial data should heavily influence future decisions within any business eyeing long-term success. But the cumbersome effort required to gather and analyze historical performance data and project future outcomes has hindered many finance leaders’ ability to spend less time managing data and more time acting as a strategic partner to the organization.

    Rob Hull, founder & chairman of Adaptive Insights, shares why finance needs the right FP&A tools and processes to drive a fundamental shift in responsibilities—a complete transition from number cruncher to strategic decision-maker—from reporting on historical performance, to driving future decisions.

    Technology accelerates everything. Now is the time to transform your business, power your growth, and become a tech-savvy CFO. It's time to get a competitive edge—or get left behind. Learn more here.
