InfoMate innovates: a case study in innovative solutions for shared services
Infomate Pvt Limited (www.infomateworld.com) was incorporated in May 2005 as a captive shared services centre for the USD 1.6 billion John Keells (JKH) Group (www.keells.com). JKH is a highly diversified conglomerate with business interests in leisure, transportation, property, IT, broking, financial services, consumer foods and retail. The objective of Infomate was to transition and migrate the Group’s accounting and payroll functions to a shared services environment and achieve efficiencies in the finance functions of the Group. Infomate employed the Group’s SAP platform in order to provide accounting services to the 60+ companies of the JKH Group located across Sri Lanka, together with Maldives and India. Infomate was the first shared services centre in the country.
