Future development plans
Already, IT development has automated many of the day-to-day tasks of the traditional finance department.
We believe the finance department will change dramatically in the near future, upgrading from a primarily ERP only to adopting a strategic position in finance management and we see Host to Host integration accelerating this trend.
Finance department will remain an agent of change in adapting to and complying with APSAS accrual reporting template as and when reviewed by PSASB.
