This new funding presents an opportunity for collaboration across levels of government to maximize the efficiency of investments and set our youngest residents and their families up for success.

Modernization of County Financial Operations – Key to Resiliency & Continuity

August 12, 2021

Thursday, August 12, 2021 | 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Accuracy and risk mitigation have long been the primary focus of finance operations, but it’s time to expand that horizon. County leaders can no longer afford to ignore inefficiencies around invoices and employee discretionary spend that are draining productivity in their organizations. Working in the finance department of a state or local government has always meant working under pressure. But now, when many are working from home, those pressures are greater than ever. Simply reducing a step here or automating a process there won’t deliver the far-reaching optimization that organizations need to succeed today and in the future. Now is the time for Counties to invest in the people, processes and technology that will fuel their digital transformation. During this webinar SAP Concur will discuss how digitizing County finance operations can save money, increase productivity, and improve delivery of government services.
