Cloud Applications for Finance

Eliminate Errors

To err is human, but can lose companies staggering amounts of profit. Some of the largest financial errors in history were due to human-made copy-and-paste errors in spreadsheets, a worry that can be eliminated by adopting a cloud application for finance.

The Future of FP&A

Machine-Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Explainability…

Excel was debuted in 1985. It’s initial use was the same then as it is today: to aggregate and access data not to be a 360-degree financing tool, which is how more than half of mid- and large-size companies utilize it.

Today, there are full FP&A and xP&A platforms, like Anaplan, which are designed to be flexible and adaptable while still having the security, governance, and controls needed to support even the largest and most complex organizations.

Anaplan’s PlanIQ, an xP&A tool powered by Machine Learning (ML), can absorb greater volumes of historical, internal, and external data to evaluate multiple scenarios. Using this wealth of information, decision-makers can drive future outcomes.

This innovation isn’t stopping, either level-up your finance team and stay ahead of the competition.

Out-of-the-Box Thinking for In-the-Black Goals

Why Us? We Get Into the Greatest Technologies on the Ground Floor.

Scale. Grow. Transform.

This mantra is on our minds every day as we explore the latest and greatest technologies, as we keep our ears to the ground about the latest innovations, and how we think about not only what is but what can be, will be, what’s next.

We hire the best people, the experts, the thinkers, the strategists, to use the best-in-cloud applications in great and even unusual ways.

The best technology falls flat when poorly executed, which is why you need to spend as much time choosing a strategic advisory and implementation partner as you do your cloud application. We’ll prove our mettle by really understanding your unique business and goals so we can implement a financial planning and analysis ecosystem that will change the way you operate for the better.
