Episode 2: Another era, another gameplan

In this two-part episode we talk about what some are dubbing the ‘New Financial Era’ – specifically Covid-19’s part in thrusting the need for technological change upon us – but when managed properly, it doesn’t have to be complicated.

With financial pressures intensifying dramatically in the wake of the global pandemic – and more and more organisations re-evaluating how they do business – Director of Product Management at Basware (and Source to Pay, eProcurement, eInvoicing, and AP Automation expert), Jason Vincelette and Tim Harford OBE: ‘The Undercover Economist’, Financial Times columnist, BBC broadcaster, and author of books including “How to Make the World Add Up” share their views and expertise on:

  • What businesses need to consider when implementing technological changes
  • Especially when such changes are being thrust rapidly and robustly upon them
  • How “improvising as they go” can help them dictate such change and rewrite the financial function in the role of an unlikely hero of innovation
  • How the automation of financial processes and data will be crucial
