The Future of Cryptocurrency

In 2022, some people still regard the world of cryptocurrency as a kind of Financial Wild West: a place where anonymity is the norm, scammers can flourish, and easy wins (or catastrophic losses) can happen overnight.

For others, the arrival of the first digital currency was the most significant fintech development of our generation. Blockchain, the technology that underpins cryptocurrency, is all set to strengthen transparency and financial governance rather than undermining it. And with the number of crypto transactions on the rise, there’s an argument that by ignoring its presence, you are simply handing your competitors an advantage.

The right approach for most UK businesses will probably be somewhere in the middle. Read on to cut through the crypto hype, to understand the up
and coming currencies and trends, and to get a better idea of whether elements of the blockchain/ digital currency landscape may become more relevant to your own business in the near future…

8 outdated attitudes that are putting your organisation's financial future at risk

There’s never been a more important time to plan your organisation’s financial future quickly and accurately. With so much uncertainty around, you need to be able to model the financial implications of what-of scenarios quickly.

ERP Software Selection

ERP Software Selection


The promise of ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) is a compelling one. Deploy the right solution and it can help deliver a complete view of your business, integrate processes and data, drive efficiency, boost productivity and sharpen your competitive edge.

But as with any major software implementation project, success is not guaranteed. Even a seasoned procurement manager can be captivated by the bells and whistles such as swish visualisations and impressive-sounding AI capabilities, while potentially losing sight of the nuts and bolts: i.e. the ability of the system to meet your real-life business problems.

Steering the ship during times of extreme uncertainty

Steering the ship during times of extreme uncertainty


Our “Steering the Ship During Times of Extreme Uncertainty” paper looks at how critical FP&A is as we enter the phase of the unknown during & after COVID-19. It highlights important approaches that may prove valuable to those in FP&A across all verticals.

One of the key factors in successfully navigating through levels of uncertainty is a simple acknowledgment that you don’t know. You don’t know what will happen. You don’t know how long this will last. And you don’t know what the best way to handle it will be.

Therefore, in acknowledgment that we do not know, and fully encouraging alternative views, we attempt to highlight a few approaches that may prove valuable to you. We discuss:

  • Dumping your long-term plans.
  • Thinking short-term and scenario-based.
  • Developing an ‘options’ mindset.
  • Communicating and aligning teams.
