Implementing Modern Technology for Finance Operations

Businesses, big and small, are quickly realizing the need to introduce new technologies in order to meet their customer’s needs. From day-to-day operations to critical decisions and long-term strategy, new technology stacks have the ability to improve the processes of many departments, if not all. The pandemic has already shown the importance of digital platforms and opened new gateways for businesses hoping to reach more clients. The current technological revolution coupled with the rise of working remotely has brought a sense of urgency regarding these new technologies. It is common for smaller-sized businesses (and even larger corporations) to be overwhelmed with this technology transformation. However, by taking smart steps towards their goal, a business can successfully put together processes and technologies that work for them.

Finance teams are having to complete increasing amounts of tasks with the same resources. Technology can fill the gap that is caused by resource shortages, allowing the financial department an increased capability. Adding a new application to a part of the finance team allows a period of trial and error within one team prior to announcing a transformation throughout the finance team and the entire company. This approach is also beneficial as it reduces the risks and resources required in any implementation. 

Knowing where to start can be difficult when there are so many paths to becoming a data-driven institution. One of the first steps a business must take is to organize its priorities and develop a strategy that allows it to strive toward its goals and business outcomes. These goals can range from reducing risk to maximizing efficiency and productivity. By identifying specific improvements a business needs, they can find more effective solutions than if they try to solve a vague problem.

The next step after recognizing top-priority goals is to figure out what specific problem implementation of technology can resolve. This implementation may require different amounts of planning depending on the scope the business initially wants to experiment with. The planning must evaluate the amount of staff, capital expenditure, and time necessary for the transformation to be successful. 

Looking out for repetitive, tedious tasks is especially crucial because financial technology is quite literally built to solve efficiency issues. These tasks tend to process large amounts of data and need multiple teams to collaborate before the final deliverables. Modern platforms using AI and machine learning can complement existing systems  -saving the associated costs required for all-out replacement.
