Digital transformation is a buzzword. It is also a strategy. One that McKinsey believes is key to an organization’s long-term success and its ability to outperform the competition. It is also the metric by which differentiation and disruption are measured because it is digital that unlocks the agility and scale needed to adapt to changing business and market expectations. For companies moving into new markets, digital is an invaluable tool that allows for them to manage shifting operational and financial expectations across multiple currencies and countries while remaining compliant. It is also the competitive advantage companies need, says PwC, to stay ahead of the competition and ensure that employees stay engaged, strategies aligned, and growth on track.
First, the question should be…how?
How can your business find the right digital platform that allows you greater insight and control over projects? What approach should you take to refine operations and smooth out processes for a competitive edge? What methodology will ensure that technology investment actually delivers the transparency, visibility and efficiency that you need?
The first answer lies in knowing the pain points
As an organization moving into new territories, you will very likely need to revise your processes and systems to ensure that you are agile enough to adapt to different legal, regulatory, and operational requirements. Multiple companies across different countries means multiple currencies, taxation laws, employee payment packages, benefit expectations, and accounting requirements.
Rapid international growth often results in an increase in manual processes across multiple systems that are disparate and disconnected. And everyone knows what that means – slow processes, frustrated employees, and limited visibility across silos and operations.
Another challenge is managing resources and finances. While there is the payroll and employee management side of the international coin, there is equally the finance and billing side that introduces its own fair share of problems. Suddenly, you’re invoicing across multiple currencies in different countries which is further complicated by internal cross-billing that has to be carefully tracked to ensure the company remains compliant and systems aligned.
These are just some of the challenges that you’ll have to overcome across sales, procurement, management and accounting to ensure that you’re capable of operating across different jurisdictions while staying compliant and efficient.
The second answer lies in the methodology…
To resolve these challenges, you want a multi-currency, multi-country platform that meets functional business requirements, can be integrated across disparate systems to ensure consistency, and that allows for improved visibility through rich data insights and reporting. Right.
This can be achieved by following a smart methodology that allows you to fit the technology to the pain points, not the other way around.
