5 Ways CFOs Use AI & Automation in Their Digital Transformation Strategy

By bringing dark data into the light, you can make better decisions, reduce risk & improve your digital transformation strategy. Read the blog to learn how.

Digital transformation requires a combination of people, process, and technology. To discuss how AI and automation impact finance leaders, we sat down with Natie Powrie (executive VP of data analytics at Main Pointe), Chris Crowe (founder of Turning Partners and Sionic Advisors), and Garrett Evans (founder of Digital Risk Advisor) on a webinar. Here’s what we discussed, and what it means for your organization’s digital transformation strategy.

Manage Risk

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 Adlib, your contracts and other controlled documents are digitized, searchable and converted to structured data, that can be easily consumed by contract analytics, BI and AI tools for further review.

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.

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.
