KPMG Consulting partners Comshare

The deal will see KPMG Consulting provide UK customers with consulting and implementation services using Comshare’s IT solutions.

Although the deal is initially UK-wide, the agreement may be introduced into other countries, and follows three months of negotiations.

The first implementation deal with an un-named customer has already been completed, and is in line with similar deals the software house already has with Deloitte & Touche and Pannell Kerr Forster.

A Comshare spokesman said: ‘This deal is a truly joint initiative and will aim to allow us to increase our software revenue and KPMG to increase its implementation revenue.’

‘The emerging market for performance management systems is huge,’ added Chris Bedell, principal consultant at KPMG Consulting.

‘Organisations recognise they must excel at all aspects of management planning and control to be successful in today’s fast changing and competitive environment.’All too often the critical processes of planning, budgeting, reporting and analysis, are disjointed and disconnected, exist in different systems, and are not easily accessible to those that need to plan and control organisational performance,’ said Bedell.
