Time for CFOs to say goodbye to Excel?

The Future CFO Report

We are proud to be part of The Future CFO report by Raconteur, published in The Times and online.

The report examines some of the challenges faced by CFOs today, and key trends and expectations for the future. There is a particularly interesting interview with Kelly Steckelberg, CFO at Zoom, on some of the approaches taken to handle the huge growth the company saw during the pandemic, with average daily users increasing by a factor of 30 over a five month period.

With valued input from Michael Krabbe, CFO at Bunker Holding who use AFC Software’s cloud-based Digital Finance platform, our article addresses this recurring question.
