HighRadius Positioned as a Leader in First-Ever Gartner Magic Quadrant for Integrated Invoice-to-Cash Applications

HighRadius, the leading provider of Autonomous Finance Software, today announced it has been named a Leader in the 2022 Magic Quadrant for Integrated Invoice-to-Cash (I2C) Applications.

According to Gartner, “Leaders are in the strongest position to influence the market’s growth and direction. They demonstrate a market-defining vision of how integrated I2C applications can help CFOs achieve their business objectives of improving cash flow while enabling efficiencies and predictive capabilities within their AR operations. Leaders have the ability to execute their vision through their product strategy by deploying AI throughout the solutions within their application. They excel in their combination of market responsiveness, innovation and product features.”

Gartner further states that integrated I2C solutions have become a key requirement for most finance organizations, projecting that the market for integrated I2C solutions will reach $3 billion by 2024.

The desire of CFOs to address the shortcomings of traditional ERP systems, improve cash flow and enhance customer experience is expected to drive that growth, as will the need to arm finance teams with the tools needed to manage ever-increasing workloads and reduce turnover related to workplace stress.

According to a recent survey by the Institute of Finance & Management, accounts receivable teams report feeling more stressed at work than ever before, a factor that likely contributes to high turnover in this key function. By automating routine processes and using artificial intelligence to flag potentially problematic issues for further review, HighRadius’ solutions increase the productivity of finance professionals while also easing their workplace stress.

“Finance organizations are always battling the clock and unrealistic expectations, and the constant pressure to keep things moving creates a great deal of stress,” said HighRadius founder and CEO Sashi Narahari. “Our solutions, which support many key functions in the office of the CFO — I2C, Treasury and Record to Report — allow finance professionals to make better decisions more quickly than has previously been possible. All while dramatically reducing their workload and allowing them to focus on what matters, not just what needs to be done.”

Automation Addresses Growing Concerns Around Team Burnout

“The Great Resignation” is significantly impacting finance teams, with CFOs increasingly concerned about high turnover rates. Finance teams move quickly and can’t afford to veer off-track toward business goals, especially during vital times such as end-of-year close. To avoid missed monthly objectives, CFOs can leverage Autonomous Finance Software to help ease workloads, reduce costs and save time.

“We conducted a series of interviews with finance team executives and found that many are under a significant threat of burnout,” said IOFM Director Josh Barrett. “Companies are investing more in automation solutions to help their teams work more efficiently and address the growing feeling of fatigue from absences, time constraints and increased workload.”
