Finance and Accounting organisations become more agile with improved operational efficiency

PwC named as a Leader by IDC MarketScape
According to the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Finance and Accounting Business Consulting Services Vendor Assessment, there are many high-quality consultants who work with clients to improve the finance and accounting (F&A) function. While the F&A function is fairly stable, improving operations is increasingly involving new technologies and new approaches to developing an efficient, best-in-class performance. 

The IDC MarketScape states that “the firms are generally strong, improving operational efficiency and internal operations and helping F&A organisations become more agile.”
The report highlights that “PwC is regarded among business consulting clients as the most capable firm overall at helping them implement changes and innovations that produce results.”
It goes on to say that “buyers of finance and accounting consulting services regard PwC as the most capable firm at helping them comply with regulations and improve operational efficiency. In addition, PwC is rated most highly at implementing required change, providing the necessary spectrum of consulting services and supporting business change across a client organisation. A C-level representative from the utilities distribution industry said that PwC had delivered "excellent results."  The representative went on to say that "PwC is definitely the leader in its segment."
Commenting on achieving this positioning, Miles Everson, Global Advisory Chairman, said: “We are really pleased to be recognised in this IDC MarketScape as a Leader.  At PwC, we help our clients to make sure they are compliant with new and existing regulations.  We bring our global presence and local knowledge of individual markets and sectors to every client, helping them move strategically through a global landscape of rapid change.”
