I've noticed something about people. Practically everyone I've ever met is walking around with two questions bouncing around inside their heads:
Who has the same problem as me?
How in the world did they solve it?
It's basic human nature. It's why YouTube videos for home repair are among the most popular. It's why Quora exists.
In business, we're doing it constantly. In fact, before I started writing this blog post, I did a quick search on "blog articles about infographics" to see how others tackled this specific problem.
So, what's my point? As finance people, we sometimes wonder how others have solved back office problems like remote access, data quality, process automation, reporting, and audit readiness.
Who has the same issues as me?
We recently polled hundreds of accounting and finance people to gauge their opinions on 12 fundamental questions about what it's like to work in the finance back office. We then summarized our findings into an eBook and an infographic.
We've placed the infographic below for your convenience. Enjoy and let us know if you agree or disagree with any of the findings!
