KPMG CONSULTING FORMS ALLIANCE WITH LEADING INTERNET SOLUTIONS PROVIDER
KPMG Consulting has signed an alliance agreement with Internet solutions provider Clearview Zivo to implement Internet-based business solutions.
"The alliance between KPMG Consulting and Clearview Zivo brings together two leaders in the e-business marketplace," said Peter Kane, partner in charge of KPMG Consulting. "It's part of a clear strategy to quickly enhance our capability, whether by acquisition or alliance, to deliver on the promise of the digital economy for our clients."
The alliance comes hot on the heels of the recent KPMG Consulting announcement of the acquisition of The Web Limited. It formalises the strong relationship that has developed between KPMG Consulting and Clearview Zivo over the last 18 months.
"It signals a further commitment to helping our clients address the challenges and opportunities around the emerging 'New World' economy," said Phil Royal, head of solutions and alliances at KPMG Consulting.
"The alliance enables KPMG Consulting and Clearview Zivo to offer the most comprehensive strategy-through-to-implementation service in the market, and exploit the Internet to the competitive advantage of our clients."
KPMG is a leader in the e-business marketplace and a key proponent of e-strategies and e-business transformations. It has completed major e-business assignments in New Zealand in the energy, public sector and financial services marketplaces over the past year. more... Clearview Zivo managing director, Ken Westlake, said the alliance is a continuation of Clearview Zivo's plan to position itself at the forefront of the Internet solutions industry in the Asia Pacific region.
"It's about building businesses, not just websites," said Mr Westlake. "The Internet is now mainstream corporate technology and internet solutions increasingly lie at the very heart of our clients' long-term business planning.
"The alliance with KPMG Consulting recognises that strategic business consulting is integral to delivering online solutions which will be successful in a rapidly maturing e-business environment," he said.
Clearview Zivo was established in 1995, and became part of the Liberty One group of companies in June 1999. It has built a client base covering a wide section of industries, including publishing, telecommunications, aviation, travel and tourism, financial and professional services, FMCG, gaming and public sector.
