Industry focus

Business and technology alignment


From a technology perspective, KPMG has aligned to best vendor capability, building up implementation skills across a number of leading BI technology platforms. 

 

From a delivery perspective, KPMG employs some of the industry’s most experienced professionals and we pride ourselves on the expertise and experience of our consultants. 

 

Proven value delivery


We offer a leading blend of business, financial and technical skills. Our consultants are renowned for their depth of financial and business process experience. 

 

As a global firm, we employ tested methodologies around delivering and implementing successful solutions while managing all attributes of a successful deployment. 

 

Our approach enhances risk control and helps to deliver tangible value throughout our engagement with our clients. 

 

Financial consolidation

 

Statutory consolidation

 

The challenge for the finance function is to develop an efficient, accurate, timely and repeatable financial consolidation that enhances the integrity of reporting from beginning to end. 

 

Technology, as a finance enabler, drives efficiencies into the statutory and management reporting process and delivers reliable and integrated results. Manual tasks are automated to ensure more time for review and analyses.

 

Our technology team assists our clients to replace manual spreadsheets or legacy consolidation solutions with a modern consolidation application that improves cycle times to facilitate a timely close. 


Regulatory and external reporting


External reporting is often a manual and error-prone process. Our team can assist in automating the collation of information from multiple sources and people, to contribute to integrity and accuracy in external and internal reporting.

 

This automated software solution minimises risk and enables our clients to meet their regulatory reporting deadlines with confidence.


Business Intelligence


In an increasingly data-dependent world, the ability to extract strategic insights from business information is becoming crucial.

 

BI enables our clients to improve the way they do business. It ultimately enhances their performance by gaining critical perspectives into vital operational and strategic information within their business.

 

We use progressive technology to enable our clients to unlock the true value of their business information.

 

Our experience in the provision and delivery of successful enterprise-wide BI projects ranges from data integration to business decision-supporting solutions based on tested web technologies.


Budgeting and planning


It is essential to plan and closely manage a business's financial performance. Creating a budgeting process is the most effective way to keep a business and its finances on track.

 

Structured planning can make all the difference to the growth of a business. It enables the business owner to concentrate their resources on improving profits, reducing costs and increasing returns on investment.


The key benefit of business planning is that it allows our clients to create a focus for the direction of their business and provides targets that will help their business grow. It will also give them the opportunity to stand back and review their performance and the factors affecting their business.


KPMG helps our clients in their redesign of budgeting and forecasting processes, as well as their management reporting.


The Business Performance Management methodology enables us to analyse the way our clients conduct and drive business performance.


We do this through an approach that helps our clients understand their business drivers. By developing Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), we can help streamline the planning, budgeting and forecasting processes and identify and implement BPM-enabling technologies.
