At Fast Forward Studio, we want you to get all the tools you need to use technology to achieve your business transformation.
We have carefully designed this event to inspire and educate accounting and other financial professionals across the world. Take part in interactive games with the chance to win one of three prizes, learn from the experts on how technology is the future of successful accounting and become part of that change. We hope that you will join us for this spectacular event.
Here are the 5 inspiring topics we'll be looking at:
15:30-16:05 - What all these new technologies really mean for financial services.
We’re hit with a never-ending list of acronyms … AI, QC, IoT, VAR, 5G, DLT, API, and BCI. We hear that all these technologies are going to transform our firms and client services – or that’s what the 'futurists' believe. Find out what these technologies really mean for you as we delve into practical ways your firm can use them to meet changing client demands.
16:10 - 16:35 - Why is Connected Accounting the new normal?
Technology has changed bookkeeping forever by automating and simplifying financial tasks. Accounting is now undergoing the same transformation. We call this the era of connected accounting. To win at the new rules of accounting, firms need to use technology to transform their services and to give them more time, data and tools to deliver value-added advisory services. So what is connected accounting all about? What does a good technology strategy for connected accounting look like? Find out this and more.
16: 40 - 17:05 - Leading accountants share their digital transformation stories.
Four prominent accountancy firms who are taking the lead in digital transformation share their perspectives and experiences. They’ll share how you can begin to transform your firm, explore what has changed in the profession and how client expectations have changed. This session will answer those important questions about what firms need to respond and how technology can help.
17:10 - 17:35 - Bringing modern technology to accounting: how cloud, AI, machine learning,… can serve accountants today.
COVID-19 has accelerated the much needed digital transformation within the accounting profession. The data we previously relied on for financial forecasting has also been impacted by this uncertain operating environment. In this session, we’ll explore how modern technology is harnessed by the Silverfin platform to achieve dynamic financial planning. We’ll showcase technical developments for accountants from Silverfin Marketplace partners in artificial intelligence and machine learning, benchmarking and cash tracking.
17:40 - 17:55 - Fireside chat with our founders Joris & Tim
Attendees will have the opportunity to put their questions about the future of accounting and the role of technology to Silverfin founders Joris Van Der Gucht and Tim Vandecasteele. They’ll discuss their experiences as an accountant frustrated with inefficient processes and a software architect looking for a problem the cloud could solve and how this led to the creation of Silverfin.
