Great Plains Attracts Big 5 for Global Account Initiative
In an effort to focus business on large, multi-national companies who need assistance with implementing its solutions, Great Plains has announced an alliance with many leading market players in a new program called the 'Global Accounts Initiative.'
Partners include two Big Five firms, Deloitte & Touche and KPMG, as well as Ernst & Young Technologies. The bottom line on this new program is to ensure local companies in foreign countries have the built-in help they need.
This includes knowing similar languages, local accounting and tax requirements, and of course, a customer's technology needs.
The typical customer is large, such as subsidiaries of Fortune 100 companies, multinationals with locations in two to three countries, and multinational organizations with up to 20 sites and divisions.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
