It has been a tough time in the charity sector in recent years, with finances uncertain amid the pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis. Charities have had to adapt, make the most of their data, and optimise their operations on a shoestring, while continuing their vital work supporting beneficiaries. In 2024, fortunately, there are signs of recovery. Charities must now take the lessons they’ve learned and apply them to the future, using data to drive further impact.
By sharing the right data with the right people at the right time, charity finance leaders become more than problem solvers. They are opportunity and trend spotters, cross-pollinating ideas from a diversity of influences, perspectives and observations across their organisation, and consequently making better decisions on everything from cost management to resource allocation and strategic investments.
Automation is just the start of your charity’s digital finance story. Once you’ve built that foundation, the next chapter is where the more impactful transformation emerges. Darren Cran, Chief Operating Officer at AccountsIQ, looks at what happens when finance – and the wider organisation – is empowered with real-time, predictive data insights.
Attendees can expect to learn:
- How charities can enhance their decision making with detailed, transparent data, becoming more than just a problem solver
- Practical ways to improve automation within your organisation, enabling both time and cost savings
- An introduction to AI and where it’s emerging in finance functions
