Business Functions

Finance

The very nature of the Finance function is undergoing a massive evolution. Bip helps its customers be at the forefront of this transformation.

Finance sits at the very core of a business, and is subject to three forces that are reshaping the corporate world: new priorities, new ways of working and new tools.

CFOs aspiring to drive the success of their companies will find the right way to balance stability and evolution in three key areas:

[Transforming Finance for Finance]

Promote new Finance operating models: transform all finance capabilities (internal processes, people, technology), and introduce new ways of working that are data-driven, lean and technology-enabled in order to ensure operational excellence in daily delivery activities, together with consistent support for statutory and compliance responsibilities.

[Transforming Finance for the other functions]

Be a partner for the Business in the company-wide digital transformation: partner with other functions to execute transformative strategies, by supporting decision-making in a business context where:

  • the request for information is moving from the traditional ex-post analysis and reporting to real time data and predictive insights;

  • game-changing opportunities require fast and continuous investments;

  • an increasing complexity requires careful managing, both internally and externally;

  • new risks coming from emerging digital business models should be mitigated.

[Transforming Finance for growth]

Act as architect of the value: directly drive strategic and business initiatives across the organization moving from cost controlling/cutting responsibilities to the direct research and promotion of opportunities to drive top- and bottom-line growth.
