Most critical priority

For the finance team to become a better decisions driver of results, and within the finance team, to support the business as best as it can be.

How Gartner helped

  • Gartner's resources provided the CFO with insights that were critical in understanding their team's competencies.
  • Gain a better understanding based on similar client experiences. Also, the opportunity to connect with peers on what they've done to best allocate capital.
  • Leveraging Gartner insights and experts helped put things in perspective in benchmarking their Finance function against peers and setting standards to aim for.

Business impact

With Gartner’s support, the CFO was able to:

  • Gain insight into key elements used in their reporting, which was then implemented by a 3rd party. This led to significant cost savings as Gartner already informed them what to know. 

  • Support the finance team make better decisions that drive results and create actionable plans while being very conscious of the expense ratios to drive sustainable costs.
