The comprehensive F&A BPO players in this quadrant generally share superior market understanding, have a global client base, an extensive network of well-distributed and highly populated global delivery centers catering for multiple languages, a good balance of transactional and high-end F&A delivery and innovative well-communicated and marketed sales offerings.”

Christopher Stancombe, Head of Global FAO at Capgemini, said: “We are delighted to be named as a leader by Gartner in this important and ever-growing BPO sector. We believe this is credit to our robust services across a range of industries, our leading global delivery model and our methodologies in transforming Finance and Accounting operations into value-adding business functions. This includes our Global Process Model (GPM) which provides an end-to-end process roadmap representing global and industry best practices which can be easily adapted to regional regulatory requirements.”
