Cited as Top Company in all categories by IAOP.
KPMG International’s shared services and outsourcing advisory practice has received all-star ratings in all judging categories on the International Association of Outsourcing Professional’s (IAOP) 2017 World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors list. KPMG was also designated a Super Star for Sustained Excellence due to its positioning on the list for the last 5 consecutive years.
The judges – who included executives and professors from GE, IAOP, Sprint, Thomson Reuters, and the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management – used a rigorous methodology to award KPMG with perfect scores in the Customer References and Programs for Innovation categories. IAOP describes the second category as being “demonstrated through specific multi-client programs and resulting outcomes that produce new forms of value for customers.”
“KPMG is truly honored to have been named a World’s Best Outsourcing Advisor every year since the list’s inception in 2008,” said David J. Brown, Global Lead, KPMG Shared Services and Outsourcing Advisory, KPMG International. “We value it not only because it provides marketplace recognition of our dedication to delivering transformational value to clients, but also because it validates for our more than 1,100 team members in 152 member firms the hard work, passion and commitment to outstanding quality they exhibit in every client engagement.”
As evidence of the depth and breadth of its global advisory capabilities, KPMG’s customer references were for transformational business process and IT outsourcing engagements with CPG, finance, and public sector clients in Australia, Europe and the US.
In the Programs for Innovation judging category, KPMG highlighted its:
- useful technology
- talent management
- talent development
- difference between centralizing and establishing a SSC
- executive buy-in
- VAT reform
- introduction to the 5 stages of shared services maturity
