Digitalisation and automation in the financial column

To deal with all of the developments in the Life Sciences sector, digitalisation and automation are crucial for the financial column. As a result, Financial Accounting and Business Control are becoming increasingly intertwined. According to account manager Thomas Peels, financial professionals are increasingly being given the main role in providing insight into management and steering information and the financial column is thus becoming the backbone of organisations in the Life Sciences sector.

Other competencies are required

The efficiency of the financial column in the Life Sciences sector is increasing, but also the complexity. This demands other competencies from financial professionals, who wish to play a role in this dynamic sector, than were required previously, i.e.: flexibility, willingness to change, adaptability, and affinity with systems and IT. Investments in staffing solutions have to be made now to find the right financial professionals for Life Sciences. The capacity that is available at present must be employed as efficiently as possible in view of the shortage.

Continuous innovation has a huge impact also financially.

The pharmaceutical industry and the Life Sciences sector are in the limelight. This is also due to the pandemic that has been holding the world hostage since 2020. Life Sciences contributed to scientists being able to develop various vaccines against COVID-19 in a record time. Apart from the COVID-19 pandemic, Life Sciences is a sector in which many developments are taking place. Topics such as ageing and technological innovations are resulting in exponential growth. All of these developments are resulting in constantly changing financial dynamics.
