Improve your margins through back-office transformation

About The Webinar

To say that SoluGrowth’s business process outsourcing (BPO) project for Mastercard Global has been a success is to put it mildly. What started as a skills replacement project in the UK and Europe seventeen years ago, expanded into a global project spanning vast aspects of the finance function, from accounts payable to fraud analytics. The project has delivered Mastercard a cost saving of more than 30 percent, and significant efficiencies, while SoluGrowth’s fees remained the same. 

In this topical webinar, Kim Besgrove, Director - Transactional Services at Mastercard will explain how business process outsourcing and automation built a case for itself at each new implementation across the business, and outline the magnificent savings and efficiencies realised as this global project rolled out.

Francois Burger, CFO of SoluGrowth, will outline the challenge to reduce costs facing all finance executives, and where the opportunities exist to optimise and drive continuous improvement across the finance and accounting function. Sandile Gwala, the CEO of SoluGrowth, will outline global trends that are driving applications in the finance and accounting functions, and what kind of results companies can anticipate. And Mark Angus, the CEO at Knowledge Executive, will present the data that makes the case for back-office optimisation.​​​​​​​
