Join us at UHY’s Farmington Hills office
8:00am–10:30am est
Please join blackline Systems and UHY for an exclusive networking breakfast discussing the challenges organizations currently face in creating an efficient and effective record to
Report process and how new Finance Governance Technology Tools help address these challenges. We are also pleased to have Henry Wagner, a Senior Manager in the Accounting & Financial Reporting function at Chrysler, discuss how Chrysler has been successful in addressing these challenges.
Finance Governance Technologies (FGT) refers to the tools that automate and digitize the record to report process components. These technologies provide the foundation to establish the monitoring, visibility, and benchmarking necessary to deliver value, manage resources, control risk, measure performance, and capture assurance in an integrated platform. The use of these tools has grown very rapidly over the last two years. This program should help attendees understand where these tools could provide value in their organizations.

Who should attend
This session is intended for anyone who is involved in supporting the execution of an efficient and effective monthly, quarterly, or annual financial reporting process. In addition, customers of the financial reporting output, such as Tax, FP&A, and Regulatory, should gain insight into how the quality and timeliness of their data can be improved. Companies that are heavy users of excel, have very manual close and reporting processes, or have complex customer, legal entity, or trading partner relationships should see opportunities to reduce complexity.
