5 Ways CFOs Use AI & Automation in Their Digital Transformation Strategy
By Scott Mackey | April 6, 2021
Risk and control. It’s what keeps most CFOs up at night.
There’s already well-documented maturity in transactional flow and monitoring systems that ensure accurate financial reporting.
Just because the numbers work doesn’t mean you’re not leaving money on the table or you’re not missing hidden obligations.
With contracts, you’re dealing with very complex documents. You can’t standardize them because your clients and vendors require customization. In the past, auditing these contracts took hours of manual labor.
With Contract Analytics software, you can better interpret and understand contractual change, risk, and opportunities quickly and effectively—so your compliance team can stay focused on what matters. With Adlib, you don’t have to struggle through expensive and tedious manual contract review either.
Enable Your Team for Digital Transformation Success
Firms often rely on people to mitigate risks.
To get answers, you need intelligent data. You can throw more people at a problem, but that’s not scalable or consistent.
What it can do, though, is make it easier for your teams to get their jobs done, allowing them to focus on more strategic priorities. Eliminating inconsistent approaches, human error, and layers of excess cost streamlines the process and makes it simpler for your teams to get complex work done.
Keep Up with Changing Regulations
CFOs often have to be the watchdog of the organization when it comes to new regulations.
With IFRS, LIBOR, GDPR, and PII regulations–and increased regulatory oversight for industries like oil and gas, manufacturing, and healthcare—businesses need easy access to data. Automation and AI helps direct that fundamental lack of visibility into the 80 percent of your content that’s lost in these complex unstructured document formats, contracts, and agreements.
CFO’s can’t go it alone.
On average, Fortune 1000 corporations have over 40,000 active contracts across various levels of the organization. That requires coordination between procurement, legal, finance, and other functions like marketing, product, or IT.
AI-driven Contract Analytics helps identify contract clauses that can prevent leakages, and leverages concessions and enforces compliance, helping your teams work better together. Armed with this info, you can create more informed corporate policies and strategic procurement cost reduction savings.
Proactively collaborating with other executives can bring traditionally siloed sides of the business together—making a significant impact on your P&L.
Making sure that works starts with C-level support.
See a Complete Data Picture
Every leader needs one thing to make better decisions: intelligent data.
If you don’t have a consolidated and accurate view of compliance or governance procedures, risk opportunities, duplication of effort, or strategic misalignment, you’re making decisions blindfolded through a maze.
With digital transformation technology, you get a bigger picture. Intelligent automation gives a holistic approach to digital transformation that accelerates your existing processes and unlocks new potential. Automated insights means breaking the human barrier of thinking.
Unlocking the power of your unstructured data gives you a more transparent and automated approach to everything from managing financial risk to analyzing performance.
