Trust Me, I'm an AI: Aaron Harris on the Future of Accounting

Aaron Harris joins Blake and David to discuss Sage's new AI offering, Sage Copilot, which brings generative intelligence into Sage Intacct to eliminate routine accounting work. They discuss specific use cases Copilot handles, like chasing people for approvals/documents, drafting emails, and answering ad hoc questions without running reports. Aaron also shares his perspective on AI’s impact on the accounting profession and why increased automation will make human review and trust even more essential.
