Today’s tough financial climate means that increasingly, more needs to be done for less.
It is vital that finance functions rise to this strategic challenge by helping to create a competitive cost structure, increasing efficiency, enabling business expansion and providing the analysis and insight needed for superior decision-making. Overall, your financial management services should mirror and support the strategic agenda of the enterprise.
We bring the right team to help you transform your finance function in line with your organisational goals. Challenging conventional thinking yet taking a pragmatic and flexible approach, we help to address operational challenges, and design, build and deliver the world-class finance services that your business needs to operate at the top of its game.
Developing the finance operating model
We work with your finance function to bring together disparate teams and decision makers to develop, debate, evaluate and implement an operating model that is fit for purpose and future-proofed.
Finance shared services and outsourcing
From building the vision, strategy and business case through to developing the operating model and advising on the procurement and transition of services, our experts will help you to identify and implement the right financial shared services and outsourcing solution for your business.
And when the new services are up and running, our work continues: helping you to continuously improve processes and develop the internal skills required to successfully manage the relationship with your service provider.
Effective finance processes

Finance enabling technologies
Process automation can provide myriad benefits for finance functions, helping to increase efficiency while reducing cost.
We have helped some of the world’s largest companies to source the right technology to enhance their financial management services; from defining requirements through to procuring and implementing the best system to serve their needs.
Cost to serve
To achieve steady growth and profitability, it is vital for an organisation to know what it costs to provide its products and services and to operate its value chain.
Our pragmatic, quick to deploy, cost-to-serve techniques help the finance function to analyse its cost to serve its internal customers, and also help the wider organisation to assess and analyse its operating costs and the profitability of its products, services and customer segments. This results in greater visibility and a higher quality of information, which can be used by management to drive superior decision-making.
Supply chain finance
Globalisation, offshore production and pressure to improve cash-flow have all played a part in lengthening the supply chain. As a result, businesses need supply chain finance solutions to mitigate risk and manage capital effectively.
We work with a range of global and regional businesses, to deliver supply chain finance programmes, reduce costs, improve cash-flow and enhance working capital. Our expert team work closely with you to define the scope, develop strategy, formulate processes and implement technologies. We´ll help you to select the right financial partners and implement the best supply chain finance solution.
