Redefining office life

Over the past few years, new technologies have dramatically impacted the role of the finance function.

The same technologies are now starting to redefine the boundaries of the department as a whole, writes Graeme Howe, Softworld deputy managing director.

Previous responsibilities included forecasting, budgeting and financial control, although still necessary, these are now becoming more automated, allowing the role of finance director to become more strategic.

The finance department is rapidly evolving to become a driver rather than a measurer of business performance, and with technology delivering more, organisations will be better placed to make business decisions. It is essential that finance professionals embrace this technology to remain at the cutting edge.

The main aim of all the Softworld events is to educate the visitor and offer impartial advice and information on the issues directly affecting them. The educational programmes are designed to help examine existing systems and processes; consider new strategic frameworks, develop new business models and adopt e-business initiatives and new technologies that will allow them to manage their business as a whole.

This year’s programme has been divided up so sessions are tailored to specific roles within the finance profession.

Together with an exhibition of the leading players in the market, these show features will provide visitors with an understanding of the marketplace as well as the solutions to drive their businesses forward.

At Softworld you can meet up to 100 software and e-business solutions suppliers, see over 50 new products, attend one of the 162 daily vendor presentations (many of which are case study-led) and benefit from special exhibition-only promotional offers ? so enjoy the show.
