Dynamic Insights: The Smart Close


Optimizing the accounting close for financial excellence

Completing the accounting close quickly has long been an objective for finance and accounting departments. A faster close enables them to respond more rapidly to changing business and economic conditions, providing more time to analyze results, address costs as needed and free up personnel for other duties. However, in more than a decade of tracking this metric our research has found slow progress in departments’ performance. This brief Dynamic Insight research survey will help you assess your efforts. This brief Dynamic Insight research survey of 16 questions will provide an evaluation of your organization’s efforts and you will receive our prescriptive guidance based on your specific responses.

Are You Qualified? The survey for this market research is designed for accounting and finance professionals who are involved with the financial close process. Solution providers, software vendors, consultants, academics, media and systems integrators may participate in the research, but they are not eligible for any incentives and their input will be used only if they meet the role qualifications. 

What’s In It For You? All research participants will receive immediate access to related research to support their organization’s efforts. Thank you for your participation!
