Any organization can be overwhelmed by aggressive competition, intrusive regulation, capital markets volatility and business complexity. Companies need to respond nimbly both to market pressures that impact their organization and to business opportunities that emerge. Furthermore, the regulatory environment is forcing more collaboration and transparency, especially among public companies.
Our goal is to create an efficient, effective, and financially aware enterprise to address these challenges. We help drive strategic business imperatives throughout the organization to create value and enable sustainable business performance through:
- Finance Strategy. Determining the role that finance needs to serve in order to support your company's vision for growth and operational excellence.
- Transformation Planning. Identifying the gaps to best-in-class performance and developing the road map to close those gaps through process re-engineering, organizational alignment and technology enablement.
- Finance Operations Effectiveness. Designing and implementing detailed finance and accounting processes, including developing user requirements, process flows and narratives, and key technology enablers necessary to maximize efficiency.
- Cost Optimization. Utilizing data analytics to identify and implement opportunities in the organization to reduce costs and maximize profitability.
- Shared Services. Conducting analyses to evaluate options for shared services, including performing cost-benefit analysis to assess onshore/offshore decisions.
Identifying the gaps and more closely linking the people, processes and technology within the organization are critical to a successful financial transformation and an aligned, informed and integrated enterprise.
