2022 Financial Close Benchmark Report Results

The Office of Finance has evolved over the last couple of years as digitization and the automation of manual work, in areas like the financial close process, have taken center stage – reinforcing that as times change, finance teams must adapt, to not only stay competitive in the market but to get the actual work done in a timely manner, as well.

Trintech conducted a survey of 160+ finance professionals around the globe in the first half of 2022, including organizations from mid-market to large enterprise, across multiple industries and job titles. Results from Trintech’s 2022 Global Financial Close Benchmark Report show that attracting and retaining talent will be the biggest challenge organizations will face over the next 12 months, followed by the need to provide real-time, business-critical insights.

Key Findings:

  • 52% of respondents noted that meeting deadlines and time pressures is the biggest challenge facing their organization’s financial close process today.  
  • Two-thirds of organizations want to reduce their days to close – 34% state that an improved speed of the financial close is the most important factor to build the business case for automation. 
  • 74% of respondents reported that they do not have “established” automation in place today – they are still in “basic” or “developing” stages.
