PWC Expands E-Business Services With New Partnership
The buzzword in today's marketplace is "e-business," and PricewaterhouseCoopers knows it.
The Big 5 firm has announced a partnership with methodfive to provide customers an expanded portfolio of e-business services, including Web design and development, integration with a customer's other services and back-end processing.
To solidify the arrangement, PWC is an equity owner in methodfive. In exchange, the New York/London based provider of professional Web services has named PWC as its preferred provider of system integration services.
In today's virtual environment, an interesting note on this story is that PWC and methodfive will house staff together in one office.
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.
