|EY and Sigma Conso Webinar
Improving group consolidation process
Consolidation can be a time-consuming process. Yet, consolidated reports are at the heart of your group’s financial communication. Thus, it is crucial for CFOs to assess the current group closing process and rigorously identify all the pitfalls.
In this webinar, EY and Sigma Conso aim to help organizations address the common challenges that they face in the consolidation process. The inefficiency of the consolidation and reporting process often results in hidden costs that can be easily overlooked but could be detrimental in the long run.
