Rethink controllership for a strategic finance function

Reimagine controllership. Quantify automation opportunities and establish transformation priorities to build a robust record-to-report process.

Supporting the strategic CFO

Today’s CFOs want to move beyond traditional controllership and deliver timely strategic insights that build competitive advantage. But too often, legacy systems get in the way. Manual, decentralized, and fragmented processes hamper the flow of information. Data from different sources that is hard to interpret discourages enterprise-wide visibility, undermining integration across the front, middle, and back offices. This degrades service to both internal and external stakeholders and increases risks of non-compliance.

With Genpact’s help, CFOs and financial controllers can reimagine their record-to-report operations. Our goal is to help companies achieve faster, more agile and error-free closure of books, while improving compliance and decision-making ability.

Our approach

Genpact combines design thinking with deep finance expertise to reimagine the record-to-report function and optimize business processes. We apply our Digital Smart Enterprise Processes (DSEPSM) framework to design a faster and error-free financial close process. We generate timely insights and management commentary using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. And to pull all this expertise together we create agile centers of excellence that guide automation efforts and incubate intelligent automation ideas.

What we do

Genpact offers a suite of services and modular products for an intelligent record-to-report operation.
