Finance and accounting BPO services: Profit Recovery and Analytics

Helping organizations drive toward high performance with innovative prevention, detection and recovery services.

Overview

Problems in procure-to-pay come at you from a variety of angles: Duplicate payments, invoice errors, “fat-finger” data-entry mistakes, failing to take appropriate discounts.

Whatever the case, it all adds up to lost profits, and you can’t have that. Getting it right requires comprehensive and holistic solutions.

The good news is that with our advanced analytics tools, in a matter of weeks, we will help detect and recover lost profits, identify root causes of underperformance, prevent future overpayments, and smoke out opportunities to avoid unnecessary costs and improve processes and controls generally.

We’re here to provide an ounce of prevention – and more – for your business’ health.

Accenture will vault you from a reactionary, after-the-fact mindset to a proactive position where you’re identifying errors before payments are made.
