Our mission statement says it all: we help large companies simplify their complex budgeting process, rapidly and inexpensively.

What does that mean in plain English? It means if budgeting and forecasting has become a really painful process for you, then we can help you budget the easy way and it won't put a dent in your bank account.

The famous management guru, Stephen Covey said: "people and their managers are working so hard to ensure things are done right that they hardly have time to decide if they are doing the right things". This quote encapsulates what we do brilliantly. Our objective is not to just implement a budgeting and planning system and walk out of the door, but to truly understand how this new system will improve your business process and performance, and importantly ensure that it is aligned to your strategic objectives. Okay we admit this sounds like consultancy talk so what do we really mean here? Well, it is pretty easy to lock ourselves away for 2 weeks and build an application that we hand over to you at the end of that period. But how much value is that if your users still do most of the work around this shiny new system in their individual spreadsheets and then just type in the end results into the new system.

How much more value would we have added if the client has a strategy that talks about providing "outstanding customer service that is best in class" and we have no way of measuring or tracking that within the new application.
So, what we do is more than just software
implementation. Our first week with the client is about learning about their business at a fundamental level, and understanding how this new system will fit into the current strategic and technology intiatives. We then work with the client to see how we can use this opportunity to capture some of the strategic measures that enable the organization evaluate and manage their performance. Only after this step is complete and the client has a  business requirements document in their hands that all the parties sign up to because it successfully captures the scope and objectives of the project that we start building the system.
What we do
So what problems are we trying to solve? Well, the first one is spreadsheet hell! You know the one, you have scores and hundreds of spreadsheets you are consolidating and it takes you 4 months to complete the budgeting cycle. Any kind of reporting or re-forecasting is an absolute nightmare. Oh, the last person who designed this beast has moved on and nobody dares change it, so you are stuck with this template that probably has some embedded errors. The second is managing the budgeting process itself so you move away from just gathering data to applying more financial intelligence to the data you've actually collected.  
You know, do stuff like sophisticated what-if and scenario analysis across all departments, regions, companies etc.

Well, you will be glad to know that there is a better way. Using a reliably hosted software solution you could reduce your budgeting cycle by up to 90% and you will be able to reforecast to your heart's content in just a few clicks. Even better, you can get your users trained in an hour or so and they will be ready to start budgeting. Sounds too good to be true? Well don't take our word for it, see for yourself...
Client testimonial
I was very impressed by the technical knowledge exhibited by our consultant. He had a firm grasp of not only the technology, but of the financial function within an organization like ours. What I really valued however, was the fact that he always promptly responded whenever we reached out for help, even long after the project was completed.
