Managed Services (‘Firefighting’)

From special projects to finance transformations, general 'firefighting' and beyond - there are common challenges faced by finance teams, and there is never enough time to get through the project list!

We offer an alternative – a managed service where a dedicated specialist team work with you to deliver project-based work. Our teams are managed by qualified and experienced professionals meaning that they can be ‘parachuted in’ with minimal guidance and support – with the view to get started straight away to work with your team and reach the core of the issue at hand.

How we can support you

  • A project-based service delivered by a managed team
  • ERP implementation
  • Month-end optimisation
  • Intercompany reconciliation
  • Balance sheet ‘tidy up’
  • Finance transformation
  • Other bespoke projects/’firefighting’

Examples of our work

ERP Implementation - Our team assisted a multinational group with implementing a new cloud-based ERP as part of a wider 'finance transformation' programme. This involved a detailed assessment of legacy processes, a roadmap to best practice, and support with the configuration of complex areas such as revenue recognition and global consolidation structures. This extended to support design, testing and elements of training and change management.

Month-end close - Our team worked with a group as part of a project to reduce the length of their month-end close following a request from their private equity investors. This involved an information-gathering stage in understanding the group policies and procedures. Following this, an analysis was conducted to identify efficiencies and 'best practice' which was then rolled out across the group on a staged process, which resulted in a 40% reduction in the days taken to close periods, as well as increasing the level of financial control and accuracy of reporting.
