“Working with Salesforce, our approach is targeted to drive value for our clients,” said Miriam Hernandez-Kakol, Global Head of Management Consulting, KPMG International. “We’re creating value by enabling clients to deliver on their promise at every point of the customer journey, and doing so, profitably.”


KPMG will also leverage the MuleSoft Anypoint Platform to drive digital transformation for clients by using an API-led approach to integrate any data source, device or application. With a single view of the customer, KPMG professionals can help organizations deliver an intentional and connected customer journey.


Hernandez-Kakol continued: “I am delighted that with Salesforce, we are not only working with a leading CRM platform provider, but are partnering with a company that shares our values and vision of helping our joint clients forge lasting, trusted relationships with their customers.”
