Whether it’s revamping accounts payable processes with new automation technologies, sharing leads with the sales team to increase win rate, or weighing direct investments in cryptocurrencies, today’s chief financial officers are expected to bring a strong combination of business and operational knowledge to the table while serving as enablers of future growth opportunities.

In a recent virtual meeting hosted by Protiviti, a group of technology industry CFOs discussed the various ways their organizations are relying on technology transformation within the finance function to achieve cost savings, including rolling back bolt-on systems and increasing the use of automation for transactional activities.

The CFOs also discussed their mixed views on the proliferation of cryptocurrencies, including the risk-reward tradeoffs of investing in stablecoins and the potential disclosure requirements associated with these investments.
