Intelligent Close: Evolving finance with GenAI

Generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) is all the buzz, but for finance and accounting it is important not to forget the foundational processes and technologies required to make your life manageable. With emerging technology, traditional accounting activities can evolve to what we’re calling the “intelligent close.” KPMG LLP's Intelligent CloseTM  goes one step further to embed digital, analytical, and artificial intelligence capabilities from the creation of a transaction through to accounting and reporting—improving the spend and quality of the close. By embracing trusted transactions, autonomous accounting, real-time reporting, and a modern workforce, you can revolutionize your organization from being the accountant to a value creator.
