We help manufacturing and distribution organizations manage critical business challenges to help them face the future with confidence.  Here are some of the most pressing issues we are helping organizations to address. 


Given their global connectivity, manufacturing and distribution companies face cybersecurity threats from multiple fronts.  Confidence in cybersecurity does not come from believing nothing will happen, it is achieved by knowing all the things that can happen and being prepared.  Protiviti provides a holistic approach that defines what is most important to you, helping you to protect yourself and also react quickly when a breach occurs. 

Digital Transformation

The drive for great efficiency and effectiveness has organizations transforming through the smart use of technology to better manage what they do and how they do it.   We help you to see the opportunities in fast moving markets, aligning people, processes and technology to transform your organization and help you to face the future with confidence.

Business Intelligence

Improving how you understand, organise and leverage your data assets is a business imperative. The challenge is identifying and capturing information in disparate systems and then organising and managing this information to create business insights. Protiviti takes a pragmatic “one size does not fit all” perspective. We tailor solutions that fit your organisation, enhancing business value through more efficient collection, distribution and usage of information.

Regulatory Compliance

Regulatory demands continue to increase for manufacturing and distribution organizations.  Key areas of focus include how manufacturers manage safety and disposal, as well as how third-party compliance is managed with global providers.  We can help you address emerging trends and existing regulatory demands through solutions that position your organization for sustainable performance and compliance now and in the future. 

Cost and Performance Management

Faster, cheaper and better are not options for manufacturing and distribution companies, they are imperatives.  In today’s competitive global environment, the ability to make and manage smart capital investments, run efficient back-office operations and manage cash flow are critical.  We help you identify and implement cost management efforts that drive performance, in both good times and those more challenging.   

Transactions, Mergers and Acquisitions

Manufacturing and distribution companies seek three types of transactions to transform their businesses.  Mergers or acquisitions to expand the scope of operations or value chain, divestitures to focus on core competencies or capital infusions from the public or private markets.  In all these situations, we provide independent advisory and due diligence services, helping you maximize value available today and position you for success in the future. 

Evolution of Internal Controls

In the fast-changing global market, control is critical to success. However, the demands on internal audit and finance functions continue to increase as the expectation today is not just for accurate reporting, but insights that can improve the business.  We can help you steer your company with greater precision and prescience, increasing confidence you are on the right path with world class internal audit and finance functions.
