The Hackett Group, an Answerthink company, announced a major expansion of its business research offerings with the formal launch of its new Business Advisory Service (BAS). The BAS programs include: Finance, with a core topic focus on Sarbanes-Oxley compliance; Invoice-to-Cash; Purchase-to-Pay; Plan-to- Results; Payroll; Shared Services Optimization; and ERP Optimization. These first seven programs – with additional planned introductions in coming quarters – dramatically expand the ways Fortune 1000 companies can leverage Hackett's advisory capabilities, renowned benchmarking, and best practices database to address timely business issues, increase operational effectiveness and reduce costs.

The Hackett Group will expand its line of BAS offerings over the coming year to encompass other major business processes within finance, IT, human resources, procurement, and sales, general and administrative (SG&A). In addition to the new BAS programs, Hackett also continues to provide comprehensive functional and process benchmark studies.

"Since The Hackett Group was formed nearly fourteen years ago, it has become a leading source of benchmarking services and data about best practices in use at world-class companies," said Hackett President Bruce Barlag. "Today's business world is complicated by factors that could never have been foreseen fourteen years ago. Our clients have increasingly been asking for our advice on how to deal with these challenges. Our new Hackett BAS programs are very much a response to market demand."
