The Charmer Sunbelt Group was recently recognized at the Shared Services Outsourcing Network’s (SSON) annual Shared Services Excellence Awards as the Best New Captive Services Delivery organization in North America. The honor recognizes and promotes both captive and outsourced shared services that demonstrate winning practices.
Collectively, the awards form the industry’s benchmark in terms of best practice and business excellence.

They provide an opportunity for shared services and outsourcing professionals to gain recognition for excellence and initiatives.
Shared Services is a proven way of delivering more efficient and customer focused services and financial savings that can either be returned to the business or invested in service delivery. A shared service center can add substantial benefits by reducing costs and creating more efficient, streamlined processes and centralizing activities.

Paul Fipps, CIO & VP, Business Services CSG stated that, “Clarkston Consulting brought a particularly strong strategic view of shared services that helped us shape the vision and execution of our shared services center.” Clarkston’s experience spans the full range of potential shared services functions with deep functional expertise in areas including human resources, finance and accounting, information technology, corporate services, and supply chain.
