Summer Masterclass Webinar Series


August Webinar Series: Mastering Financial Intelligence & Analytics

For the past ten years we’ve worked with enterprise organizations around the globe to deliver the capacity, and tools, necessary to achieve optimum financial intelligence and world-class reporting capabilities.  Needless to say, we’ve seen a lot over the last decade.  The landscape of financial data sources and systems continues to expand and evolve, and so does the inherent complexities.  The result—a growing gap between financial data and the ability to analyze, visualize, and report on the data easily and efficiently.  A multimillion dollar EPM system with all the bells and whistles, but a financial reporting process that relies heavily on manual and time-consuming Excel-based reports.  Sound familiar?

We’re here to help.  During the month of August we are providing a four-part webinar series in which we combine a decade of knowledge and experience into four key topics that will help any organization better master financial data and analytics.  We are thankful to have a number of expert guests and hosts ready to impart their wisdom to help you and your company better analyze, visualize, and report on financial data, and ultimately maximize your capacity to enhance financial business intelligence.
