LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwired - July 14, 2016) - The 2016 PEAK Matrix for FAO is based on 1,000+ large multi-year FAO contracts signed by 15+ service providers. The report found that the increasing demand for more judgment-intensive processes, such as Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A), has led service providers to reorient their capabilities. The competition in the market is getting intense and service providers are creating a differentiation in this market through various strategies, such as vertical-specific go-to-market offerings as well as advanced analytics, and proposing more transformative solutions instead of vanilla lift & shift.

Everest Group positioned arvato as a "Major Contender" based on high levels of delivery capability in the areas of Scale, Technology & Innovation and Buyer Satisfaction.

Speaking about arvato's positioning Rainer Majcen, CEO Finance BPO said "we believe arvato's positioning as a "Major Contender" is a reflection of arvato's client-centric approach, our focus on innovation and commitment to investing in F&A BPO solutions."
