Thomson Reuters Backstage presents:
Are your future-proofed tax and accounting systems already obsolete?
On-demand event

2020 has pressed the fast-forward button on many of our “future” plans. Remote work and cloud technologies became instant necessities, and our new way of working shed light on common challenges around data, systems, and processes.

Thomson Reuters Backstage is reprising this popular episode, Are your future-proofed tax and accounting systems already obsolete?, which was originally aired during Thomson Reuters SYNERGY 2020 virtual conference.

At Thomson Reuters, we often talk about the future of tax and accounting. Well, the future is here, sooner than we thought. Let’s greet it together and embrace this unique opportunity to redefine the work we do and how we do it.

Take the cloud for instance. We’ve all heard about it for years, but what is it really? Beyond letting us all work from home, what does it really do? How does it save us time and money? Let’s chat with the experts to find out. Our brilliant team members at Thomson Reuters are busy at work on cloud technologies that drive new innovations and ideas. They’re on the frontline of cutting-edge research and lab-tested solutions for real-world customer challenges. Artificial intelligence and blockchain are “future” cloud tech that Thomson Reuters has been working on for years.

Join us for this special edition of Thomson Reuters Backstage, reprised from SYNERGY2020, as we talk with the experts behind the scenes at Thomson Reuters and discuss how we’re preparing for our current future.
