But creating, maintaining and communicating shareholder value is an increasingly complex process. In a post-financial crisis economy with markets in flux and investors still tentative, creating shareholder value is a bigger challenge than it’s ever been. And as companies compete for available dollars, it’s difficult to identify an opportunity and know how to take advantage of it. Beyond building value, companies often neglect to communicate value – the processes that drive it and the metrics that define it – to shareholders or to the enterprise at large. If value isn’t both fixed in corporate culture and disseminated clearly to shareholders, confidence and future investments can be imperilled and growth initiatives put at risk. The cost of failure in today’s market is high. These capabilities allow you to integrate data capture, processing, analysis and information with key finance process requirements.
