When introducing a new process, system or solution into a business it is imperative that all members of the organisation buy in to the chosen method. Priorities differ from role to role making it important to understand individual and departmental needs. It is also key to identify what the benefits would be to yourself and your team.

For any Finance team the bottom line is top priority. But with calculating profitability and generating and chasing invoices, tasks within this department can be extremely time consuming and resource heavy. This is where automation can make a huge impact freeing up time to analyse, plan improvements and increase profits.
