A Thought Leadership Paper by Everest Group, supported by Infosys BPM

Amid changing business dynamics, the CFO’s role has evolved to that of a strategic partner, while the expectations of organizations for their service providers to provide more strategic support have also risen. With the added imperative of finance transformation along with key concerns such as cost optimization, productivity improvement, and digital transformation to navigate economic uncertainty, organizations have become more open to leveraging third-party support.

In this space, it is a pleasure to present this Everest Group thought leadership paper titled "How to Maximize Value from Your Finance and Accounting Outsourcing (FAO) Engagements".
