Industry Background

All industries regardless of the size and nature of operation are seeking Financial Management Excellence, for both internal and external reporting. The finance office of all these companies is facing key challenges:

IMPROVE PROFIT - Improved Focus on Cost and Profitability

TRUSTED DATA - Single Point of Trusted Data for Reporting

TIME CONSTRAIN - Speed of Internal & External Reporting

COMPLIANCE - Accountability & Data Governance (Audit & Control)

EMPOWERMENT – Elevating the Value of Finance Staff with Technology

 

World-class financial management focuses on speed and quality of data to enable management to react promptly to the changing business environment. Corporations big or small are struggling with consolidating the diverse data coming from many subsidiaries with different ERP systems and unifying the data into a standardized forms for both internal and external purposes. They are battling with time constrain, managing disparate sources of data, improving the quality and accuracy, more insightful information for decision making, and enabling their finance office to be more effective in order to gain competitive edge in their business.  

Achieving management excellence is all about improving your management and decision processes. But like most organizations, the challenge is that your management processes and critical information for decision making are not well defined and highly fragmented.

The symptoms are that your business is not well aligned, it’s hard to predict your business performance and your business decisions are highly inconsistent.

Unlike ERP, where you have well defined processes like ‘Make to Order’ and ‘Procure to Pay’ you have no clear definition of your management processes and lack of insight to critical information for making educated decisions.

We can help to change that.

With the broad scale adoption of ERP systems by most corporates in the market, the competitive advantage of “Operational Excellences” (induced by ERP systems) is beginning to diminish, opening up a new frontier in the area of “Management Excellence”.

Market leaders must compete on analytics and improve their management processes to strive to be the market leader, to be more profitable and more efficient. 

The vision of EPM is to build on the operational excellence achieved from ERP standardization and create the next level of competitive differentiation – it is the management excellence.

To be able to excel in today’s fast changing business environment – we all know the value of information is profound.

Scheme Description

Enterprise Performance Management is the processes designed to help organizations to improve their plan, budget, forecast, and report on business performance as well as consolidate and finalize financial results (often referred to as “closing the books” or “financial consolidation). EPM solutions are primarily used by the office of finance, while other functional areas, such as HR, sales, marketing, and IT, use EPM for operational planning, budgeting, and reporting.

Most of these companies are starting to realize that ERP systems can only get them halfway to their reporting needs, both internal management reports and external compliance reports. Management team demand much faster, more accurate and higher insightfulness in reports, where budget, forecast and cross-departmental focusing on profitability rather than the mere actual data for operational purposes.
