NEW YORK, June 20, 2023 – EXL [NASDAQ: EXLS], a leading data analytics and digital operations and solutions company, announced that it has been named a Leader in the 2023 Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Finance and Accounting (F&A) Business Process Outsourcing (BPO)” for the second consecutive year.
The Gartner research report evaluated 18 F&A service providers according to a uniform set of criteria, placing companies into four quadrants: Leaders, Visionaries, Niche Players and Challengers. Gartner defines Leaders as companies that “execute well against their current vision and are well positioned for tomorrow.”2
The authors note that “Leading vendors in this market have not only developed offerings capable of introducing intelligent workflows and advanced analytics but also ensured these functionalities apply across end-to-end finance and accounting processes. Furthermore, these vendors have improved their ability to convey how their business models and innovation strategies will continue to optimize and enhance automated processes throughout the contracted term.” Gartner forecasts that “by 2025, 80% of finance outsourcing contracts will be for digital transformations (primarily contracting for technology implementation and management services), up from 55% in 2021.”
“Once again, the world finds itself on the precipice of a digital revolution and business leaders around the globe are grappling with what the meteoric rise of new technologies, such as generative AI, will mean for the future of their businesses,” said Narasimha Kini, EXL executive vice president and business head, Emerging Business Unit. “At EXL, we have spent years helping finance and accounting leaders develop data- and AI-driven solutions that power better insights and more streamlined operations. We believe this recognition reaffirms that direction and validates our path forward.”
“As finance and accounting business processes begin to incorporate more cutting-edge AI-driven solutions, we are playing a key role in making the promise of these technologies a reality,” continued Kini. “We look forward to continuing to help our clients improve efficiency and deliver superior customer experience and improve business outcomes.”
EXL currently has an overall rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars for its Finance and Accounting BPO services based on 40 reviews as on 16th June 2023 on Gartner Peer Insights.
