Commercial real estate services provider Cushman & Wakefield has selected Accenture and Workday solutions to provide digital, analytic and cloud solutions.
Accenture will help the company to design and implement standardized HR and finance back-office processes, enabled by digital, analytic, and cloud capabilities.
Additionally, Accenture will manage select HR and finance and accounting functions through its business process outsourcing services, leveraging a digitally-enabled workforce.
Accenture will also provide consulting services to enhance Cushman & Wakefield’s use of data analytics in key strategic areas across the company.
“In today’s increasingly competitive business environment, companies must be efficient and agile. This program is about introducing world-class financial processes and controls through technology-based services, enabling us to innovate and make highly-informed business decisions on behalf of our clients around the globe,” said Duncan Palmer, Cushman & Wakefield’s global chief financial officer.
In connection with its latest IT move, Cushman & Wakefield expanded the deployment of Workday Financial Management and Workday Human Capital Management (HCM).
“With Workday, Cushman & Wakefield can rely on a single suite of applications for finance and HR, arming leaders with the critical insights they need to deliver outstanding levels of client service,” said Phil Wilmington, co-president, Workday.
Wilmington added that a significant extension of Cushman and Wakefield’s Workday implementation will occur later this year.
Design activity is already underway at Cushman & Wakefield to enable the adoption of new delivery models in HR and Finance beginning in 2016.
