Transcending Technologies: Evolving Your Accounting Services

May 19, 2020 from 8:05 am - 9:15 am

Innovations in accounting are on the horizon: artificial intelligence, blockchain, big data, and many more. What do accountants and tax advisors need to do to be ready for these innovations? Review the impact of these emerging technologies and identify what you and your teams need to do NOW to start getting ready for the changes that are coming and ensure your company has a competitive advantage.

How Emerging Technologies are Enhancing the Accounting Profession

May 19, 2020 from 10:25 am - 12:05 pm

Artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain and big data are being heralded as the end of the accounting profession. This is definitely not true. These emerging technologies will actually increase the value of the services provided by accountants by removing the need to perform mundane transactional and basic compliance work. Accounting firms and finance departments need to develop an innovation strategy to transcend these emerging technologies and prepare their staff for the changes that are coming ... and they are coming sooner than you think!
