PwC Named a Leader in Finance Operations Consulting

ALM Intelligence names PwC as top-ranking provider for breadth of services

Out of a total of 28 competitors in this Vanguard, PwC ranked among five firms that were chosen as leaders. PwC was named as “Best in Class” in Project Management and ranked highly in breadth and depth of consulting capabilities.

On the finance operating consulting space, the ALM Intelligence report states, “The focus generally among corporate (and private) clients has shifted from broader business model issue concerns to more tactical performance improvement, which means the service pendulum has swung once again back from finance transformation to enterprise performance management.”

Author of the report, Tomek Jankowski, Senior Analyst, Management Consulting Research, says, “PwC’s focus is to reconfigure and optimize finance towards the goal of supporting broader client organizational strategy. So the firm’s approach is on optimizing performance while putting the finance function in its proper organizational context. The firm leads with its BXT (business-experience-technology) paradigm, which addresses the business change needed, the human-technology interface -- the experience -- and the technology solutions required.”

Tomek notes specifically, “PwC’s approach to finance is strongly technology driven, with a heavy emphasis on helping clients automate as much of the finance processes as possible, while also driving down costs.” He continues, “PwC brings together the technology, finance, performance, strategy and human capital resources to bear for its vision of a fully optimized finance function.”

Brian Furness, Global Finance Leader says, “We are delighted that ALM has recognized PwC as a Leader in this new Vanguard.  Our focus on technology is now at the core of everything that we do, which includes a broad SME offering.  We are pleased that ALM recognises our ability to merge these business, experience, and technology (BXT) capabilities, as it underpins our entire portfolio and has us well positioned to help our clients address their changing business needs for the long term.”
