Accounting packages and cake

Back to all events

14:00 Wednesday 30th September 2020

Online virtual event,

  • The Event
Following on from the success of our previous accounting software sessions, this year’s event will offer an update on the latest developments for the sector, the state of the market, and will also examine some case studies that exemplify the risks and benefits of real-world implementations. Delegates will be invited to share experiences of software and suppliers as well as discussing examples of good practice for selecting and implementing the right package for your organisation.
The session will draw on case studies from the sector and the subsequent discussion will cross the traditional departmental boundaries; so, senior managers have been invited from finance, HR, fundraising, marketing and communications disciplines as well as those with information systems responsibilities.
