Course Description

Modernizing intercompany accounting can have a tremendous impact on an organization, but alignment is key to success. That's because, for many global organizations, intercompany processes are a challenge, often driven by complex regulations and local reporting requirements. Simultaneously, underlying activities are heavily dependent on manual efforts and require significant cross-functional finance and accounting collaboration.

Join us as Chad Soltman and Katie Thayer of BlackLine discuss steps your organization can take to improve intercompany accounting processes and, as a result, reduce risk and cost while gaining productivity.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify why manual intercompany accounting processes are not sustainable

  • Determine why your enterprise resource planning (ERP) system isn't designed to handle intercompany accounting

  • Recognize the complex challenges of intercompany processes

  • Identify key value drivers of intercompany accounting processes, including cost savings, productivity gains, and risk reduction

  • List top intercompany use cases for technology to address
