The use of digital solutions in accounting

Digitalization does not stop at accounting. Digital solutions for process optimization and automation are in demand. Companies want to remain competitive, increase efficiencies and reduce costs.

Capital Markets & Accounting Advisory Services supports companies on their way into the digital future. We advise on the selection and implementation of digital solutions for specific accounting issues, financial statement preparation and reporting, and modern knowledge management. In doing so, we rely on new technologies such as AI (artificial intelligence) and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) in addition to our distinctive expertise in accounting and IT. On the one hand, we have self-developed solutions, and on the other hand, we advise on solutions on the market.
