Host: Emily VanVleet, principal, Deloitte Tax LLP
Tax departments were in various stages of digital preparedness for remote work when the COVID-19 pandemic started. How can tax executives better prepare for the post-pandemic digital future while still having a sustainable approach to driving business value? We’ll discuss:
- Ways to transition core functions such as document management, data manipulation, and data management to the cloud.
- Strategies for maturing from simple task automation to more strategic and sustainable process automation.
- Considerations for when to wait for ERP and other enterprise solutions and when to move quickly with tax-focused solutions.
