Measuring the Real Cost of Manual Accounting | BlackLine

Presented by BlackLine and Financial Executives International
 1 CPE Credit Accounting 

Manual accounting processes are a top frustration of every accountant—the repetitive work, endless spreadsheets, and late nights at month-end. But what’s the real cost? How can we change? What can we do given this distributed work environment?

Sonia Chu, of BlackLine, will explore the costs of traditional manual accounting processes. She will discuss how you can measure the value of automating specific accounting tasks, identify the significant issues at your organization and change to be more efficient.

After this webinar, you will be able to:
  • Discover why manual accounting processes are not sustainable, epically given the work from home environment.
  • Recognize the real costs of accounting beyond hard dollars, including risk, time, and employee morale.
  • Explain the opportunity cost of doing accounting work the way it’s always been done.
  • Identify key considerations for building a business case for transforming your accounting department.
