Shared Services

Investments and recurring costs in non value-added activities are constantly growing and exerting continuous pressure on organizations to reduce costs and increase transparency in these services. Shared Services are a key contributor to driving efficiencies and tackling budget pressures.

Businesses throughout the world are constantly facing operational and strategic challenges to improve their service to customers, lower their costs and increase business effectiveness. This has never been so imperative than in the current economic climate.To align their business strategies with this ever changing environment, businesses have to adopt some element of Shared services in its operating model. This approach enables companies to eliminate non value-added activities, automate essential processes, and benefit from standardisation, economies of scale and skill.

Shared Services are more than just centralization or consolidation of similar activities in one location, rather it’s convergence and streamlining of similar functions to ensure effective and efficient service deliveries.
