Improving sustainability and productivity is an absolute requirement for Council Finance leaders faced with the challenge of doing even more with even less.

Chaired and introduced by Chris Smith and Emma Foy, this webinar will address some of the common challenges S151 officers and their teams face, including the requirement for Productivity Plans and how to modernise the finance function with a single solution that provides automation, self service and best practice across the entire finance function and beyond.

It will feature a practical example of how a modern SaaS solution has helped with the West Lindsey Council transformation journey from Emma Foy, S151 Officer.

Emma will discuss how West Lindsey have improved management of budgets, reporting and closedown through the implementation of a modern, easy to use finance solution that has removed silos and enabled improved business process and access to management information across the whole Council supporting all services.

For additional insight from a Unitary Council the webinar will feature the views of Blackpool Council S151 Steve Thompson and CEO Neil Jack on their experience of implementing a new finance solution.

The webinar will finish with some views on the “art of the possible” from TechnologyOne followed by a Q and A.
