In December of 2021, Industry Dive in partnership with HighRadius undertook a survey of senior finance executives to determine the issues which affect CFO office agendas in 2022. More specifically, we asked 150+ finance leaders in the industry what their top objectives would be in the coming year, what significant threats were on the horizon, and how they intended to meet their goals while minimizing those risks.
Finally, we asked how automating AR processes could address the emerging challenges in 2022, and the resulting impact it might have on customer service, costs, and cash management. This report presents those results along with expert commentary on how advanced AR automation technology provides a host of benefits, including creating competitive advantage while helping companies attract and retain the type of talent they need to achieve their growth objectives in the coming months.
