Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving opportunities in the global accounting and audit services market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:

Adoption of technology saving aspects
Technologies such as big data and advanced analytics, integrated auditing of ERP systems laser, and cloud computing help analyze large volumes of financial data in a short time, leading to cost-savings to the extent of 7% of the total category spend.

Buyers also expect their suppliers to possess capabilities such as resolving accounting and auditing challenges that may arise during the auditing process.
Supplier competition saving aspects
Suppliers compete on the basis of direct fee discounts and offer value-added services such as environmental audit. Clients prefer to engage with suppliers that are conversant with regional regulations and standards set forth by regulatory bodies such as the FRC for divisions of their organizations operating in the UK. Suppliers need to exhibit thorough knowledge and expertise with all auditing standards related to the region where they operate.
Bundling of services saving aspects
One of the most opportunistic strategic cost saving levers in the global accounting and auditing services market is the bundling of accounting and auditing along with tax advisory services. Buyers expect their suppliers to possess capabilities such as resolving accounting and auditing challenges that may arise during the auditing process.
