Finance software touches every department and function; it's the pulse of the entire organization. Selecting the right software to automate its application processes can mean huge savings in time and money -- and it can boost revenue. Choosing the wrong ERP, accounting or compliance package, however, can spell doom.
In this three-part guide, veteran IT journalist Alan Joch talks to industry observers with advice on how to make sure that doesn't happen -- and it starts with teamwork. Before digging into the high stakes of financial software selection, Joch lays out the steps necessary to put the right people and processes in place.
