CaseWare Africa hosts forums to spotlight new technologies
“Today the only certainty in the world’s economies and business markets is change," Theuns Holtshousen, divisional business leader for CaseWare Africa, said. "Of late, we have been reminded of the ‘trickle-down’ impact that macroeconomic influences have on even the most-sophisticated or fastest-growing economies in Africa.”
This philosophy, Holtshousen said, also applies to the financial services sector.
"In addition to looking at adapting to ongoing market challenges, this profession -- including financial officers, accountants and auditors -- are faced with numerous other changes in standards, regulations and new ways of working and there can be no doubt that the profession needs to adapt to thrive,” he said.
Company officials hope leaders and associates of businesses looking to upgrade their software solutions will attend the forums, which will include sessions geared toward accounting and auditing practitioners and business financial professionals.
“Today, financial offices and practitioners alike are expected to focus on more than just the numbers and have to demonstrate value through strategic focus on the client or business’ forward moving objectives,” Holtshousen said. “With this change comes more pressure and responsibility to not only prepare financial statements and monthly management reports, but to interpret the information and advise the client or business towards meeting the strategic end objectives."
The forums will focus on the latest CaseWare technology and ways that technology can be used to get the best outcomes.
