Accountants and digitalisation: Time for change

As in many professional sectors, the professions surrounding business accounting are undergoing a profound transformation thanks to digitalization.

The need for digital development in the federal, cantonal and municipal administration

All the surveys say that the Swiss have confidence in their administration. However, the coronavirus health crisis has highlighted gaps or shortcomings.

With the digitisation, digitalisation and automation of processes, human resources departments are evolving into a new profession, into a more central role within the company. Under the condition that this one is well-prepared for the inevitable digital transformation. Although the HR department no longer produces pay slips or manages leave by hand, it must now face new challenges arising from new technologies. The management of data within the company and its security must be at the heart of the...

The digital revolution we have been experiencing in recent years is bringing about profound changes in all economic sectors. The need for digitalisation is felt at all levels, not only by large companies or corporations. Process automation goes far beyond office automation.
