Finance Transformation

Optimising cost and efficiency


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.

Our experience extends across all finance process areas – including Record-to-Report, Order-to-Cash, Procure-to-Pay, Treasury and more.

Some key themes driving change for the modern finance function include:

  • Faster close
  • Finance efficiency
  • Reducing data gathering in favour of data analysis
  • Automation of controls
  • Zero-based budgeting
  • Finance structure and effective business partnering
  • Finance shared services
  • Finance data, analytics & insight
  • Finance technology
