Shared Service Centres

Fast-track finance, tax and trade transformation with content-enabled cloud-based technology

Build a future-ready Shared Service Centre that delivers greater strategic value to your business  

As companies navigate new levels of uncertainty, many are accelerating digital transformation and rethinking their approaches to statutory financial reporting, tax and trade compliance.  

As a Shared Service Centre (SSC), the time is right to become a springboard for enterprise-wide transformation. Content-enabled technology makes it easier for you to increase efficiency and quality by centralising more complex, knowledge-based activities like statutory financial reporting, tax and trade compliance. 

This way, you can build an SSC that is a true strategic partner to the business.

Expert-led automation removes the roadblocks to transformation

With a process automation solution that is embedded with trusted global content, data and information, your SSC can integrate complex statutory financial reporting, tax and trade compliance processes into an efficient, centralised model. Having all your data in one place enables greater analysis and insight, to inform strategic decision-making across the business.

Keep pace with evolving regulations and best-practice requirements across multiple jurisdictions


Easily comply with distinct local-GAAP disclosure and tax requirements, reporting formats and filing deadlines


Adhere to local language rules by leveraging machine translation capabilities


Reduce manual effort and improve data quality, transparency and auditability

Cloud-based software gives you the agility and ability to scale. Automate more data-driven, knowledge-based processes across multiple jurisdictions with ease.

Shared Services environment isn’t a choice anymore. You really have to scale your accounting control and compliance functions. You just cannot do them efficiently locally. Automation is fundamental… It’s critical to find the right tools that enable you to drive the efficiency from scaling.
