The 2015 State of the Shared Services Industry report provides an insightful look at how shared services operations around the world are reacting to challenges - namely process optimization, digital transformation,data analytics, automation & new and evolving skill sets - and the opportunities presented by these trends. We've canvassed our global SSON practitioner community and documented responses from 450 Global and Regional Directors and Leads of Shared Services, Finance, HR and GBS for insight into their own practices.
Key findings on what’s driving “radical performance” in 2016. With much of the discussion around Shared Services evolution hinging on new opportunities that have presented themselves in recent history, SSON asks practitioners how they are positioning themselves to become more relevant and offer better service in the coming years.
Automating manual tasks often falls by the wayside as IT is overburdened and can’t get to all of the project requests. The good news is there is a new, emerging solution called robotic process automation (RPA). Intelligent software “robots” can be deployed in a matter of weeks to automate routine, repetitive activities and create a digital workforce‒with no coding required‒and without the need to replace your existing systems.
“No Rip and Replace Needed: A 6-Step Starter Kit to Implementing Robotic Process Automation” is packed with helpful tips on:
- Identifying which manual tasks to automate
- Evaluating and selecting the right RPA vendor
- Building executive and IT consensus
- Determining your full-scale roll-out

We have extrapolated detailed and actionable trends from our surveys of regional industry professionals, regarding topics such as performance optimization, data analytics, customer service, and more!
Technology has been driving the evolution of Shared Services since its inception more than three decades ago. And yet, never before have we experienced such extraordinary shifts in scope, value, and capability as over the past 18 months. This shift has been driven by nothing less than a fourth iteration of the industrial revolution based on robotic automation, but now, moving from manufacturing into services.
There has never been a more exciting time to work in Shared Services, to lead Shared Services’ evolution, or to take a seat at the executive table – at least for those who understand how to grasp the opportunities.
SSON’s annual market report highlights the underlying trends driving these shifts, identifies the ‘new and improved’ profile of a modern Shared Services team, and points to strategic value-add embedded within the Shared Services model.
