Webinar Wednesday: Transforming your LGA

Webinar Wednesday: Transforming your LGA

We understand that reporting visibility and accuracy within LGAs is often restricted by reliance on outdated or unpredictable manual processes and disconnected systems?

This session provides insight into the tangible benefits of having a single source of truth for LGA finance data, and how this supports improved planning and decision making across the organisation.

Planning and reporting that relies on spreadsheets from multiple disparate systems is time consuming and stressful. The right technology can turn your data into a “single source of truth.” whether it’s financial, project, or grant related. You’ll save countless hours of manual effort allowing your finance team to focus on value-add activities such as "what-if analysis" rather than tedious data manipulation.

Key learnings for this session include:

  • Reduce reporting cycles via effortless production of monthly, quarterly, and annual council financial and statutory reports.
  • Aggregate disparate data from multiple systems (ERP, HRIS, Fleet etc) providing a real-time single source of truth. 
  • Ensuring data accuracy when consolidating and tracking budgets and grants for multiple departments.
  • Empower their finance team to be more efficient and productive whilst delivering meaningful, value-adding work
