Company leaders are increasingly looking to CFOs for strategic direction, not just the latest financial reports EY Germany’s Dr. Marcus Gantzkow noted that CFOs are gradually taking on the role of “Chief Value Officer.” “CFOs today are expected, from an internal management perspective, to provide real-time insights from data of all types, also increasing beyond the scope of purely financial insights,” EY says. This is due in large part to the decreased cost and increased accessibility of technologies such as cloud-based systems and instruments for data analytics, as well as “greater clarity about key analytical areas.” In an economy marred by uncertainty – rampant inflation, unpredictable supply chains, an evertightening labor market and fluctuating consumer demand – it’s imperative that business leaders stay a step ahead of whatever crisis may be coming next.

The Roadmap to Business Continuity
White Paper: Basware
AUTOMATION ENABLES BUSINESS CONTINUITY In challenging times, a reliance on physical paper and manual processes significantly slows down the entire payables process, and in some situations makes it impossible to keep up with your normal business processes. But there’s a way you can minimize disruptions to your financial supply chain and day-to-day business. Automation. Automation does more than just speed up the process – it mitigates risk, supports a flexible and remote work environment, offers real-time insight into exactly where your business stands at all times, guarantees you can take care of your suppliers, and ultimately provides visibility no matter where you are or what’s happening in the world. To bounce back from today’s challenges without major economic fallout, businesses need data to not only make the right decisions but also make them quickly. We’ve now seen how critical it is to have visibility over your global supply chains for resilience and continuity to prevent shortages, ensure safety, maintain profitability, and future proof your business. In times like these, automation allows you to focus on what’s important – employee welfare, minimizing supply chain disruptions, and business continuity – instead of getting caught up in manual, repetitive processes. It’s about more than just making money – it’s also about ensuring the safety of your employees and protecting the supply chain.
