Transform your finance function for key business benefits


The financial close is a complex process which continues to grow in importance as executives and chief financial officers (CFOs) face increasing pressure to deliver timely information to the market and critical information to the internal organization. A key catalyst to modernizing the financial close is emerging automation capabilities which leverage state-of-the-art technologies and enhanced business processes to drive efficiency into all activities.


Join RSM as we share how resetting an organization’s finance function by aligning to the organization’s strategy improves competitive advantage, leads to better decision-making, and supports the goal of driving stakeholder value. During this event BlackLine and Host Analytics will discuss why leveraging modern cloud-based financial applications provides greater insight and cost savings, and allows organizations to move their finance function forward.

Our presenters:

Karen Wiltgen, principal, and Monir Hachem, manager, both consultants in RSM’s technology and management consulting practice will be our presenters. In addition, representatives from BlackLine and Host Analytics will share insights on financial function automation.
