The role of the modern Finance function is fast evolving to support and enable the ever-increasing pace of business change. Although the drive to optimise the cost and efficiency of finance never goes away, the role of the function to drive business value also becomes ever more important - operating as a true business partner to enable growth and drive cost efficiency right across the business. In our experience, some key themes driving change for the modern finance function include:
We have helped our clients transform and succeed in all these areas and more. We can help you both with defining the strategy for your Finance function, or with delivery of the change you need to achieve it.
We’ve worked with many of the world’s leading companies on their most challenging finance transformation programmes – from early vision, strategy and business case, right through the hard yards of delivery.
Our experience extends across all finance process areas – including Record-to-Report, Order-to-Cash, Procure-to-Pay, Treasury and more. We can bring a compelling combination of industry and business knowledge relevant to your sector, finance functional understanding, technology expertise and the transformational change know how to make it all happen. We help finance and finance technology executives understand how best to move their business forward – and we work closely with them to get on and make it happen.
With our ‘low volume, high value’ model, we won’t overwhelm with large teams or take months to produce results. Typically only using one or two highly experienced and high calibre people, we can assess and turn around major programmes in weeks, or help you cut through to a core strategy in a matter of days. Above all, this is about sound judgement – doing enough analysis and drawing on our experience to help our clients make a confident call on what’s right for them. We work as close knit part of your team, doing the work ‘with you, not to you’, and getting to results that have real ownership and buy-in.
A strong finance function is at the heart of any successful business, so any finance transformation is vital to get right. We’ve worked on some of the most challenging and critical transformations in this space – from major financial reporting programmes, to Procure-to-Pay transformations, to Treasury systems implementations. Whatever the nature of your finance transformation, we can help you set the strategy and deliver the change you need to realise your vision for finance.
