Future of accountancy and finance professionals is set transform for the better through an increase in the adoption of digital technologies, according to Meaningful work for the digital professional, a report by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and EY based on a global survey of 4,281 respondents and 55 interviews between April and May 2020.

Social media and messaging had the highest adoption rates at 55% followed by “Next-generation” computing at 36% and data technologies at 30%.

The report also found that professionals who are less experienced but more digitally savvy found the transition to remote working brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic more difficult than  their more experienced counterparts.

Overall, the report shows that there is room to increase levels of digital adoption.
