Modern financial systems have brought the concept of ‘right time’ to a scenario that historically looked at the past only in order to solve issues pertinent to the present and relevant into the future.

Earlier generations of technology ran functions in isolation – this was the only way to achieve the set goals.  Therefore, financial systems were tasked with keeping reliable transactional records. While that remains a crucial function today, current robust connectivity makes it possible to break down  barriers and connect financials directly into day-to-day core business operations.

Implemented in just a few months or even weeks, a cloud financial system is able to work in sync with the business. Instead of acting as a brake on progress, it embraces and facilitates change. It delivers financial data in a business context that shows the real-world impact of decisions. It supports speedy digital alternatives to error-prone, slow-moving paper processes. It has the connectivity and integration smarts to automatically consolidate business data. Rather than running in isolation from the rest of the business, it becomes an integral part of day-to-day operations, decision-making, and strategic planning.

Fast-moving enterprises understand the importance of right-time information to compete successfully in a digitally connected world. They recognise the risks of delay and the rapid advantages a cloud financial system offers. There are significant strategic business reasons why now is the time to move to cloud financials.
