We asked small-to-medium-sized businesses about their close: how long it takes, how many people are involved, how automated it is, what technology they use and what they would most like to change.

Key trends that emerged:

  • When companies reach 50-100 employees, higher levels of automation are needed to gain efficiencies and stay competitive.
  • While larger companies tend to be more automated, a high percentage of work remains trapped in spreadsheets across companies of all sizes – from manual imports and exports to allocations, budgeting and planning and more.
  • Companies are moving to the cloud for higher availability, better reporting and lower cost of ownership.
