Business Intelligence Consultants

In Planning and Consolidation, we have been helping our clients drive increased visibility to performance-related data since our founding in 1995.  We help organizations that want to build a performance management culture.  Evolving from best practice methodology in Business Intelligence, our clients want to identify, measure, and control key points of leverage for achieving business success.  The ability to do that successfully is the true measure of a solutions’ – and an organization’s – information performance.

Today, most organizations are drowning in data, but lack the clarity that true information performance can deliver.  Leading organizations are moving away from monolithic management information delivery platforms and arming their key business leaders with the personalized metrics they need to achieve performance gains.

The true measure of information performance is not the quantity of data or the overpowering graphical dashboard.  The true measure of information performance is the ACTION that improves upon key performance metrics across the organization.

For far too long, organizations have built technology out in areas such as management reporting, decision support and analytics UP from the technology stack.  Our time-tested “Front to Back” process centers on the aspirations and needs of the functional areas of the business.  This approach provides every level of the organization with true insight to performance in a timeline designed for positive action.  We think a business system designed from the needs of the business user DOWN into the technology stack is the only proven way to drive true ROI – Return on Information. 

Business Performance Management Consultants

Our value is focused in one area – we understand the methodology and practices necessary to move our clients toward the business process and systems that create a true feedback loop in their decision-making process.  Without proper feedback from any action or inaction, initiative is lost.  Leaders among our clients want to run their business from the front, constantly moving forward.  As many insightful business leaders know, historical data is increasingly unreliable as an accurate predictor of future results, but it can have value.

Business Performance Management (BPM) is about building a focus in the organization to truly understand and monitor performance.  When past performance is understood, future performance can be predictable.  A Performance Management culture provides its leaders not only with specific, personalized insight to past results, but also provides a guide to the future.  In a business environment increasingly focused on a shorter cycle, what can be more valuable than accurate insight to the future?Of course, Performance Management can increasingly sound and feel like some idealistic place too far across the ocean.  However, the reality is that leading organizations have been to that place. The journey imparted true competitive advantage for their firm. In many places, when a party embarks on a long and difficult journey, a guide is retained. Strafford is very much like a guide, or compass – helping provide reference for our clients as they embark on a long journey.  This voyage can often start with improvements to financial reporting systems, sometimes in a labor analytics approach, and often with implementation of a budgeting and forecasting system.  As your guide on the voyage, expect to find that SAP Manager LLC team “knows the ropes” and can be a valuable Partner for you to guide you to the right port through rough weather and darkness to the light.
