Consumer & Retail

As they digitise their businesses, retailers must have real-time insight into their customers’ demands, motives and behaviours. And they must create the compelling, omnichannel experiences that today’s consumers expect.

This requires a technology platform that can integrate product, customers and experiences – and provide a single view of all three.

Government & Public Sector

Citizens’ expectations of public services are on the rise in the digital age. People want to interact digitally with the agencies they deal with, and expect slick and convenient experiences when they do.

But at the same time, digital technology is an opportunity for public organisations. It’s a means of doing more with less – delivering more services, more effectively, and more cost-efficiently.

An integrated platform

  • In the public sector, improving services often means joining them up. And joined-up services require joined-up systems. Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a fully integrated ERP and CRM platform, offering you:
  • The collaborative power of cloud-based working
  • The data and insight to understand changing demand patterns
  • 360° visibility of your organisation
  • An ideal platform on which to establish digital services
  • Productivity tools to help your employees work more efficiently
  • Better risk management and financial control
  • The ability to enhance service capabilities and citizen satisfaction

What’s more, it wraps these capabilities in a familiar Microsoft environment. This makes it intuitive and user-friendly for employees with diverse roles and skills: from managers and support staff, to frontline community workers and service providers.

Why KPMG?

Our team understands public finances, and knows how to de-risk the process of managing them. A number of our consultants are CIPFA-qualified accountants, with extensive experience of working for local authorities, central government and police forces.

We’ve used this knowledge to develop specialist functions within Dynamics 365 that cater for the demands of public finance: for example, a CIPFA-compliant Chart of Accounts and reporting facility.

We’ll tie your Dynamics implementation to your strategy and operating model, and help you understand its governance, risk and compliance implications.

Print & Media

  • Print organisations need to address three overriding challenges:
  • Coping with declining volumes
  • Controlling and reducing costs
  • Accelerating their response and delivery times

Today’s technology enables you to tackle all three. But many print businesses are missing out on the transformation opportunity it offers.

Transformative capabilities

Print firms are often hampered by legacy management information systems (MIS), which lack the ERP and CRM capabilities to transform their operations.

To succeed in a changing market, they need an integrated technology platform that can:

  • Schedule production efficiently
  • Manage complex workflows simply, flexibly and effectively
  • Analyse the cost of production in real time

That’s what Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central enables you to do.

Affordable and easy to adopt, Business Central is a flexible and scalable ERP platform with powerful CRM functionality. It’s built to intelligently manage print operations end to end, and to grow in line with your business.

Our unique print solution

Thanks to our strategic alliance with Microsoft, KPMG has deep expertise in implementing Business Central, and tailoring it to the needs of print organisations.

PrintVis, our dedicated print application, is embedded in Business Central. Designed specifically for print companies. It runs all pre-press, press and post-press activities, and can manage all forms of production, including flexo and litho printing, and the latest digital processes.

PrintVis provides complete visibility over your production cycles. And it gives you access to the latest innovations in the Microsoft 365 stack, including the Power Platform.

  • Its JDF/JMF-compliant functionalities are designed to manage your:
  • Estimation and real-time costing
  • Job-flow planning and control
  • Purchasing and inventory
  • Shop-floor operations and data collection
  • Despatch and invoicing
  • Customer relationships and complaints handling
  • Performance and cost analysis
  • Financial control and reporting

Why KPMG?

We know the print sector inside-out. We understand its operations, processes and supply chains, and we’re experts at transforming them. To date, there have been more than 250 PrintVis implementations worldwide.

Our team combines more than 100 years’ experience in the industry. Clients include renowned litho printers, and some of the world’s largest food packaging and transactional mail producers.

Wholesale & Distribution

Today’s consumers are used to having everything available at the touch of a smart device. And they demand the same of the retail businesses that wholesalers and distributers supply.

It’s a change that is forcing wholesalers and distributors to eliminate defects, work to shorter setup and lead times, and operate smaller production runs and lot sizes.

An agile platform

Adapting to this new reality demands the flexibility to respond to fast-changing customer needs – which in turn requires real-time visibility of the entire supply chain.

Yet the technology platforms many wholesalers and distributors use can’t deliver the necessary immediacy and transparency.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 brings the power of the cloud to wholesale and distribution operations.

It also gives you the data and analytics capabilities to view the whole supply chain, in real time. And it provides the operational agility to meet evolving market demands.

Why KPMG?

Our team has over 50 years of combined industry experience; and we’ve completed more than 100 Dynamics 365 implementations for wholesalers and distributors around the world.

But while we think globally, we act locally. We’re where you are, and we know what’s happening in your backyard. We’ll ensure your solution is fit to tackle the disruption you’re facing.
