Finance & Accounting
Implementing sustainable strategies to drive down back-office costs
With a large proportion of councils drawing on cash reserves as a short-term fix to their funding shortfalls, there is a clear need for long-term solutions that will restructure how services are delivered.
Working with an outsourcing partner can help government organisations identify a number of areas for improvement, including opportunities to streamline finance & accounting processes and overhaul legacy systems.
We work with our clients to eliminate wastage caused by manual processes, improving speed of payments and accuracy. Our end-to-end service offering includes:
- Record to report
- Accounts payable
- Order to cash
- Project accounting
- Financial support & advice
- Internal audit
- Debt management & recovery
- Process credit & debit card payments
We understand the importance of trust and security, particularly when it comes to protecting data. The unique nature of our long-term partnerships is widely recognised, and include some of the most complex and large-scale finance & accounting programmes in the public sector.
