EGR-2013-1-R-0899 THE RISE OF INDUSTRY-SPECIFIC FAO SOLUTIONS Introduction Finance & Accounting Outsourcing (FAO) has traditionally been a horizontal service offering with a value proposition driven by cost savings and efficiency gains. However, as the market requirements intensify, FAO solutions are increasingly becoming more industry-specific. The nature of these changes ranges from the adoption of industry-specific terminology to more asset- intensive approach in the form of dedicated industry-specific platforms. As the demarcation between horizontal and industry-specific offerings blurs, the FAO value proposition is expanding beyond the bottom line to more directly target the clients’ top line performance. This report lays out a comprehensive framework for the FAO market’s move toward industry-specificity, and then applies this framework by taking an in-depth look at two key industry segments: retail and airlines. The report discusses:  Drivers for rising industry-specificity in FAO  Three levels of industry-specificity in FAO solutions  Application of industry-specific FAO concepts in retail and airlines (illustrated with case studies)  Challengesand emerging bestpractices To download the full report click here.
