Online virtual event,

  • The Event
Following in a long line of annual accounting software sessions, this year’s event will offer an update on the latest developments for the sector and will also examine some of the newer products on the market. 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.
