“When everyone involved in financial management and business control can access relevant & transparent information, the business benefits,” said Alar Lange, Global Industry lead, Financial Performance Management at Unit4. “Because most business data is being pushed into financial systems, CFOs own the business intelligence and have the opportunity to take a leadership position: staying up-to-date 24/7, collaborating with the business, and driving future performance. Working with customers and senior industry representatives, the Advisory Council will focus on the digital future of Financial Performance Management.”
Unit4 delivers innovative financial management solutions designed to meet the core needs of people- and services-focused organizations around the world. “Financial Performance Management is a key focus for every organization no matter what their business,” said Anders Löwgren, Finance Manager at Semcon Group and Advisory Council member. “As global business goes digital and new challenges emerge, the role of the CFO and finance is even more critical to success. Organizations must be prepared with the right tools to gather and format financial data, so they can spend more time planning for the future and generating budgets that keep the organization prepared for the future. We appreciate this opportunity to provide input around such an important business issue.”
