We work with our clients to enhance the operation of their finance functions and position their finance teams for lasting success.

We work with our clients to enhance the operation of their finance functions.

As the leaders of today’s finance functions continue to work hard to boost their relevance and value provided to the business, they are shifting their focus outward to those activities that contribute the most to supporting better business decisions that improve overall business performance.  

The biggest challenge lies in creating the efficiencies needed to gather and process basic financial data and continue to deliver the traditional financial outputs, while at the same time redeploying their limited resources to drive business decision support activities.

How we can help

At KPMG we work with our clients to enhance the operation of their finance functions and position their finance teams for lasting success.

Our focus is on supporting our clients with the key elements of the transformational change required to position finance as a trusted advisor to the business.  Specifically:

  • establishing a Finance Target Operating Model that defines the finance organisation of the future 
  • taking LEAN finance principles and practices to drive the required process efficiencies 
  • rethinking the use of Shared Services and Outsourcing to implement more strategic, mixed sourcing practices and migrating certain higher-value activities 
  • building a new approach to Finance Talent Management to attract employees and develop capabilities at all levels within the finance organisation 
  • harnessing Business Intelligence tools and data analytics techniques to provide more meaningful forward looking financial forecasts, predict and manage risk, and identify new market opportunities 
  • aligning Risk and Finance Functions to enable business decisions strike the right balance between risk and reward considerations and create a more sustainable financial reporting environment, and  
  • deploying EPM Solutions to enhance the return on investments in ERP systems; data warehouse tools and business intelligence capabilities to provide a comprehensive, integrated decision support platform that can enable finance teams to provide significant business support and value.
