5 Ways Poor Visibility Undermines Financial Shared Services Initiatives
More organizations are operating their accounts payable and accounts receivable functions as part of a regional or global shared services environment. These organizations are drawn by the promise of lower costs, better process efficiency, and improved service to stakeholders.
But organizations will never achieve the full benefits of a shared services environment if they still rely on manual and paper-based finance and accounting processes.
