Turn finance into a growth partner

How finance can help drive growth, instill agility, build resilience, and deliver insights for a sustainable future

CFOs today are playing a critical role in helping their companies manage inflation, rising costs, and supply chain disruption. They also face the challenges of driving sustainable business growth, mitigating risks, building resilience, and developing new business models.

But to deliver as strategic growth partners, CFOs must elevate the finance function from a provider of transactional services to a vital source of strategic insights and guidance.

Challenge

Drowning in data; unable to surface insights

But many finance organizations struggle to realize this vision. They have inflexible and fragmented structures and operating models – they also suffer from manual, error-prone processes and backward-looking financial planning and analysis. They battle against legacy technologies, systems, and disconnected data while also facing the challenge of reskilling their people. As a result, finance teams spend too much time collecting, collating, and crunching numbers and not enough uncovering the insights and value that support strategic decisions.

As finance leaders' priorities shift toward supporting sustainable growth, managing inflation, and building agility, they must first address each of these challenges.

Solution

Remove burdens, release insights

Genpact's finance and accounting consulting services guide organizations as they transform into future-ready finance functions. Our hands-on experts reinvent finance operating models, eliminate the burden from transactional processes, and arm leaders with intelligent insights to support major business decisions (figure 1).

Three core assets help us accelerate this journey:

  • Our continuous transformation framework, which incorporates four capabilities linked by enterprise intelligence, seamless change management, and a client-focused culture. We bring industry expertise, technology, and data together in a way that delivers a combined value greater than the sum of its parts
  • Proprietary performance and governance frameworks that drive world-class finance functions
