ScottMadden Shares Guiding Principles to Create the Next Generation Financial Shared Services Organization

June 28, 2017

ScottMadden, Inc., a general management consulting firm, recently sponsored and presented at SSON’s Shared Services for Finance & Accounting event in Dallas, TX. This event offered a unique platform for attendees to gain the proper knowledge to evaluate the impact of intelligent automation, grow their shared services operations from a North American focus to a global one, and transform their service delivery into the indispensable backbone of the business.

During the event, Brad DeMent and Trey Robinson, partners and leaders of ScottMadden’s finance and accounting practice, discussed a new generation of shared services. So, what’s next for financial shared services organizations (SSOs)?

“Organizations need to begin skating to where the hockey puck will be versus where it is now. A digital financial shared services strategy can avoid wasteful spending in yesterday’s technology, vendor call centers, long-term BPO contracts, and much more. ScottMadden can help you review basic principles of establishing an enterprise-wide digital plan that will keep your finance organization relevant for the next decade,” said Mr. DeMent.

“As many shared services organizations begin to mature, it is extremely important to remain focused on expanding, innovating, and inspiring your teams. Those who don’t, stagnate. However, those who do remain strategic organizational assets,” added Mr. Robinson. “We are excited to be able to share leading practices at conferences like this, and we are thrilled to partner with our clients as they navigate this evolution.”
