Accounting has evolved, and like the rest of the world, it is in the middle of a digital transformation.
Hear first-hand from Hyatt and the impact technology and process improvements have made on transforming and modernizing the way its finance and accounting teams work.
Learn how Hyatt:
- Increased visibility and streamlined the month-end close
- Eliminated the need to pull data for auditors – estimated 700 hours saved annually
- Ensured segregation of duties, and enabled hotels to focus on customers instead of accounting
Join us for this informative presentation as Michael Shultz, of BlackLine, looks at how existing technology can modernize your reconciliation and close operations and automate your period-end processes. And consider how technology can significantly reduce errors while speeding up work, allowing more time for review, investigation, and analysis.
