ZEISS Group compliance

ZEISS has been a client of PwC Germany’s tax and legal services team since 2013. In September 2020, PwC started using the firm’s newly-launched Engagement Center (EC) (now Sightline) compliance platform to help ZEISS simplify its global compliance obligations.

With multiple business units in different countries, the company needed a clearer line of sight into local compliance issues in a rapidly evolving global regulatory landscape. 

In 2016, AT engaged PwC to develop its digital and customer strategy in order to transform the company from an engineering business into a world-class customer-centric organisation. Over the past five years, PwC has helped AT roll out ‘Customer Central’, an ongoing programme with a core objective to ‘build better, customer-centric digital solutions faster’.
