The accounting industry was already poised to continue its trend toward sensible tech adoption in 2020, 但全球大流行使这一趋势加速发展. 采用云计算等技术选项, 自动化过程, 数据分析, blockchain and even social media have seen widespread usage increases over the summer and into the fall. 公司还有什么选择, 毕竟, but to use every tool at their disposal to adapt to new and unpredictable ways of doing business?

我们即将迎来今年的最后几周, 企业面临着艰难的重新开放决定, the tech question becomes: What tech innovations are going to prove the most useful to firms in 2021? The BB电子 has composed its own list of predictions for the state of technology in accounting for the year ahead.


  1. 云服务在2020年证明了自己的实力, as firms still operating under traditional accounting processes discovered the necessity of accessing important files and documents from anywhere amid shutdowns and stay-at-home orders. 进入2021年, accounting firms and professionals are expected to continue adopting cloud services at an accelerated rate as 80% of companies plan to implement some form of hybrid return to work policies1.
  2. 自动化过程将在2021年继续取得进展. Automation of routine and compliance functions will continue to gain ground in the coming year. 应付账款, 工资, 签名, data collection and delivery were all high on the list of automation in 2020 and will continue to see expansion as reverting will create a competitive disadvantage2.
  3. Blockchain will drive efficiency among accounting firms as Distributed Ledger Technology will allow firms an unobstructed view of internal workflows to maximize budgets and efficiency. Progressive accountants should look forward to improved traceability of historic events for auditing purposes3.
  4. Big Data and 数据分析 will see improved regulation and protocols for responsible use regarding financial gain, 因为它们是收集有价值的金融见解的关键, 检测操作效率低下, 2021年跟踪客户进度,开发精确的预测模型3.

  2. Outsourced accounting functions is one of the fastest-growing areas of the accounting sector, 根据 INAA集团. 将特定的任务外包给第三方, firms free up time and resources which can be devoted to expanding current services as well as new offerings to clients3.
  3. 5G will move to replace wired Internet connections as the back up as it offers unmatchable speeds and bandwidth in 20212.
  4. Increased cyber awareness and security will require a company-wide strategy to combat growing sophistication of cyber criminals, 联邦调查局报告称,自疫情开始以来,网络攻击增加了300%1.


随着会计行业趋向于技术的采用, 注重创新,事半功倍, it is important to carefully evaluate any and all tech strategies prior to implementation. 2021年要避免的最大错误是过度自动化和过度数字化. 根据 《bb电子游戏网络平台》, 最大的风险存在于自动化通信中, such as chatbots self-service solutions which can takeaway the personal aspects of a company differentiating it from its competitors. 客户与公司之间的人际接触越少, the less opportunity for emotional connection which is a key driving factor in generating customer loyalty5.
