A future greater than the sum of its parts

KPMG and Microsoft helped a global professional organization transform go-to-market strategy, finance operations, and workforce approach.


U.S.-based global professional organization




Digital transformation enabled by KPMG Connected Enterprise, KPMG Powered Enterprise, and Microsoft

Client challenge

Our client is a “for-purpose” organization working in nearly every country around the world to advance careers, strengthen organizational success, and enable changemakers with new skills and ways of working to maximize their impact.

Over its 50-year history, this global non-profit grew through multiple acquisitions, resulting in complex and expensive operating model with disconnected processes, systems, and data silos. It was increasingly difficult to provide a consistent and reliable view of all customer interactions and effectively manage and forecast financial growth.

Digital disruption and shifting customer expectations and needs also provoked heightened interest in on-demand, digitally enabled products and services around the world. However, the organization’s outdated and unsupported technology infrastructure, including difficulty in processing international currencies, hindered the non-profit from keeping up with the needs of the business. Internally, it was getting harder to recruit and retain innovative talent to generate new ideas.

Piecemeal change wasn’t the answer. Nothing less than total transformation was required to help our client achieve its goals for continued growth.

KPMG and Microsoft joined forces to help this organization completely modernize and transform its processes, technology, and organizational design. Nothing less than total transformation was required to achieve its goals for future growth.

Key KPMG initiatives

KPMG helped PMI move through every stage of an ambitious digital transformation journey, leveraging the KPMG Connected Enterprise approach and Powered Enterprise implementation tools, from initial “art of the possible” thinking to full realization of a new operating model. KPMG:


Monetized B2B sales from companies partnering with our client to certify their employees.


Leveraged Microsoft Powered Finance and Microsoft Powered Sales and Service to accelerate the complete transformation and modernization of the organization’s back, middle, and front office.


Reconfigured the enterprise operating model to provide greater clarity around job roles, competencies, and career opportunities.


Helped our client establish a Customer Experience function, creating a strategic pillar focused on CX improvement while implementing a new operating model and future state roadmap designed to deliberately engage customers.


Consolidated four separate enterprise customer relationship management systems into a single Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Experience (CE) platform and unified the finance systems into Microsoft Dynamics Finance, resulting in a 360-degree view of the customer from initial contact through payment.

Business impact

KPMG helped transform every part of our client’s business. As a result, the organization has:


Enhanced customer engagement through personalization across digital channels and channel partners and through a unified and personalized shopping experience and updated brand, including international storefronts with local currency acceptance.


Consolidated sales and operations efforts bringing over 450 internal users into a single platform enabling transparent pipeline reporting for the entire sales team, advancements in customer 360 awareness.


Improved resolution time and first-touch resolutions by integrating Microsoft D365 CE with phone, email, and chat channels and consolidated approach towards customer management in a single D365 platform.


Increased customer growth by establishing new centers of excellence in high-growth markets globally and customizing product offerings by region.


Streamlined its cross-functional business processes with near- real-time data and automated period-end close and consolidation processes.


Targeted an eight-point improvement in net promoter score.


Stayed on track to achieve a 20 percent improvement in net financial performance by 2022 by providing engaging experiences during COVID-19.
