The right people to get the extraordinary done.

Some opportunities feel like impossible challenges. They’re so big and complicated that they require insights from lots of different fields. But when you have the right team working with you, truly extraordinary things can happen.

BEGIN

Help a domestic airline to fly internationally.

Upgrading an entire airline is no easy feat. It takes collaboration and an incredible breadth of thinking to get the job done.

Sometimes getting the extraordinary done means taking on the world.

Going international is an incredible opportunity. New routes mean new markets and new possibilities to expand. But airlines are filled with a million and one moving parts. Things like infrastructure, technology and staff training can be extraordinary challenges. So we pulled together a huge team of diverse thinkers to help make it all happen.

Getting the extraordinary done, one infrastructure challenge at a time.

Remodeling 500 planes is one thing. Upgrading things like security, ticketing, customs and customer service in a whole host of new airports all at the same time is another task entirely. We set up a command center to work across nearly 100 airports and support centers to help manage it all.

When nearly your entire workforce needs retraining, the extraordinary needs to get done.

It wasn’t just that thousands of employees needed new skills. The training had to be done across a whole host of new countries, each with its own cultural, legal and regulatory complexities. And it had to be done fast. We came up with a new approach and executed it across countless work streams, implementing over 700 procedural changes across multiple countries.

Sometimes you have to completely rethink technology to get the extraordinary done.

Airlines rely on hundreds of business applications, databases and integration technologies. So when you need to upgrade and integrate them all in a hurry, you need a roadmap that lets you steer clear of all the headaches. It took lots of collaboration and a team of skilled PwC analysts, data architects, developers and programmers to get to takeoff without any bumps.

Implementing a new technology roadmap

We had to upgrade more than 40 different information-management applications as the airline was expanding internationally. Keeping old systems up and running without fail was just as important as making a smooth transition to our new platform. All of our applications had to be integrated with back-end data warehousing to support new systems for things like reservations, check-in procedures, in-flight communications and passenger apps for flight status and reward programs. From research to testing, implementation and deployment, PwC’s technology project team had the diversity of technical experience to handle the unexpected without a hitch.

Flip the switch to see how we went from old to new:

Help make the world’s leading cancer treatment available to everyone who needs it.

Helping a major research hospital innovate new ways to combat a disease is a huge undertaking. When that disease is cancer, the results can be nothing short of extraordinary.

Harnessing big data
to fight cancer. Getting the extraordinary done to save lives.

Applying big data analytics to cancer treatment is a complicated business. You have to aggregate thousands of medical journals, clinical studies and patient health records before things like diagnosis and treatment can even be considered. From oncologists to computer engineers, genomic analysts to program managers, we pulled together an extraordinarily diverse array of insights to help get the job done.

Reducing the need for trial and error

Identifying the right treatments for individual cancer patients has long been a challenge for doctors. The stakes are high and different stages of the disease require different courses of action. Often, treatments are extremely tough for patients to endure, which is why finding the right one early really counts. PwC helped a major research hospital design and implement an evidence-based approach using big data and cognitive decision-making technology. It means doctors can find the right treatments faster and quickly rule out ones that are ineffective. That’s great news for patients.

Flip the switch to see the difference.

When you can apply breakthrough technology to cancer diagnosis, you can get the extraordinary done.

Cognitive decision-making technology. It’s a new breakthrough in big data tech that can match a patient’s cancer diagnosis with the best available treatments. But before we could apply the tech, we had to properly evaluate all of its potential benefits, while keeping in mind all the complex regulations of the healthcare industry. That meant designing a new technology architecture and making sure it was as cost efficient as possible.

Improving medical decisions with results from big data.
That’s getting the extraordinary done.

Helping to make the next generation of technology standard practice in cancer care all across the country takes collaboration and a lot of PwC planning. Training oncologists and hospital staff to use the technology is one step. Creating a mobile application that helps patients directly is another. The goal — better-informed medical decisions based on evidence from big data. And more patients getting the treatment they need.

From big cities to small towns, getting the extraordinary done for cancer patients everywhere.

It’s not just about technology. It’s about saving lives. And providing cancer patients and their doctors with access to the best possible information, no matter where they happen to be. Cognitive decision-making technology lets doctors in even the most remote locations compare their patients with patients across the country to identify successful therapies. That means more people getting well. And staying that way.

Rethinking the audit process for a global apparel brand.

Delivering a quality audit for a rapidly evolving global company is no small feat. It requires an incredible breadth of technical and industry experience to provide an objective point of view across the business.

When you’re the auditor of a rapidly changing global company, it’s your job to get the extraordinary done.

It takes a global team with lots of technical and industry experience to get the extraordinary done for a fast-growing international company. Understanding the complexities of an evolving global supply chain in over 150 countries was just the beginning. We had to maintain a core understanding of their current business relationships and track new developments.

We need to continually innovate our audit process to get the extraordinary done.

Getting the basics done right isn’t as easy as it sounds. That’s particularly true when a quality audit process has to keep pace with the demands of a fast-changing industry. By investing in technology, we’re always driving improvement in our audit process. That helps us make things more automated and it enhances our project management capabilities. More innovation. More effectiveness. That’s how PwC delivers a quality audit.

Having a diverse team and lots of local experience gets the extraordinary done.

An ever-evolving global brand requires a diverse team to handle its complexities. We have groups of professionals with technical experience in every corner of the globe. That means we can create knowledgeable global teams and strategically place them where they’ll work best.

Being prepared for tomorrow’s business developments today. That’s how you get the extraordinary done.

When a business is changing rapidly, it requires an incredible breadth of experience and insights to provide a quality audit. We dynamically reshaped our teams and added members with deep understanding in areas like emerging technology to enhance our perspective.

Streamlining the global tax process for a pharma multinational.

Simplifying, standardizing and centralizing the tax processes of a global pharmaceutical company is an enormous challenge. It takes a cross-disciplined team and lots of detailed thinking at every step of the supply chain.

Getting the extraordinary done to help a company help the world.

Bringing new treatments to market is a painstaking business. Things like R&D, clinical trials, manufacturing, marketing and distribution are all essential steps. And at every stage of the supply chain there can be thousands of transactions that need to be properly accounted for. That’s why it’s critical to create a standardized process that’s as streamlined as possible. Because when a company can manage its supply chain more efficiently, it can allocate its resources where they can have the most impact.

Implementing a uniform process across hundreds of business units.
That’s getting the extraordinary done.

When you’re dealing with the tax implications of thousands of transactions happening at every point on a long supply chain in a highly regulated environment, it’s not always easy to handle all the complexities. The more so when you have thousands of different products that need accounting for. Get it wrong, and it’s impossible to see a clear picture of the company’s true performance. That’s why we designed a simpler, more centralized and automated model to make things easier.

Using technology to centralize tax reporting

A more automated and centralized tax-reporting process makes things simpler and more efficient. That’s important when you’re dealing with thousands of transactions happening across hundreds of business units on a global scale. But building a more centralized framework is also a balancing act between the need for globally consistent policies and the specific needs of local operations. We developed one technology engine with an ERP system that enabled a more centralized and automated tax-reporting approach everywhere.

Flip the switch to centralize the tax-reporting approach.

Getting the extraordinary done with a cross-disciplined team.

Fully understanding and aligning a company’s tax processes is never simple. But when policies need harmonizing and processes need standardizing across continents in a multitude of unique, complex and highly regulated environments, the challenge becomes colossal. We needed a cross-discipline team addressing issues from business strategy to risk to tax reporting in order to establish consistent policies, processes and governance for markets on a global scale.

Getting the extraordinary done in tax across a whole supply chain. That’s helping people get better.

WWhen a pharmaceutical company can manage its supply chain as efficiently as possible, it can dedicate more time and resources to helping people get better. We built more standardization and automation into the tax process to make things simpler and more consistent for everyone. One technology platform integrated with an ERP system to eliminate the need for spreadsheets and manual calculations, so the client could put their resources where they were needed most.
