PwC South Africa, Google enter joint business relationship

Mergers, Acquisitions and Financial Results

PwC South Africa has entered into a joint business relationship with Google to bring new and innovative solutions to companies across Africa through PwC’s Africa Network.

In a statement released on Thursday, PwC said the rapid pace of innovation in technology had fundamentally changed how and where work gets done, driving organisations to transform their businesses for the future.

“Together, PwC and Google aim to help that digital transformation happen,” noted PwC Africa strategic digital transformation leader Liesbeth Botha.

Google will provide companies with innovation and technology platforms, while PwC will contribute industry experience and a broad range of business services and client insights from strategy through to execution.

Together, the parties will help companies succeed by leveraging PwC’s business insights along with Google Apps for Work and its Google Cloud Platform.

In doing so, PwC and Google will guide companies seeking to break new ground in their businesses — not only to compete with new entrants and adapt to disruptive market forces — but also lead the innovation themselves.

“Ultimately, our collaboration is about helping clients embrace their journey to the cloud, and transform their organisations to thrive and maintain relevance in a rapidly changing world,” Botha said.

PwC Africa has also started introducing Google Apps for Work applications in its own operations.
