Capgemini’s award-winning Frictionless Finance drives the transition to the Frictionless Enterprise

David Lumley

Talk of intelligent automation, artificial intelligence, and other emerging and innovative technologies always promises a revolution across every aspect of your business – especially when these discussions turn to what these technologies can do for your finance and accounting (F&A) function.

However, despite the race to become the most digitally-augmented company on the market, your organization still faces a range of problems if you want to achieve truly high-performing business operations. What’s more, these same obstacles often lead to an impaired customer and employee experience, inefficient decision-making, reduced speed-to-market, and an inability to keep pace with rapidly changing regulatory environments.

Countering friction requires real operating model evolution – to break down your internal barriers, take control of your data, and redefine your finance processes for the digital age. Your finance function should be a key protagonist of this evolution, and needs to move from simply cleaning-up frictions to becoming a business model disruption catalyst.

But how can you make this transformation easier? How can you handle the ins-and-outs of this kind of transformation without disrupting your day-to-day business operations?
