Streamline your workforce planning process

Having a growing organisation brings the challenge of managing large amounts of data, which can easily leave day-to-day operations spent sifting through spreadsheets. Not only does this take up precious time, but it also hinders your ability to effectively interpret your data and make informed decisions — ultimately affecting business performance and limiting your future growth.

Our Financial Workforce Planning (FWP) solution automates this process so that you’re free to focus your time and energy on the things that matter most. It provides a more streamlined process and allows you to determine how your financial decisions affect your business even at the individual level, meaning that you always know where you stand.   

Our solution is people-centred and gives you a “full organisation view” of your workforce planning so that everyone involved in the planning cycle can see the latest status of the plan. Created to cater to all your planning, budgeting and forecasting needs; our FWP solution allows you to keep track of actual performance compared to targets, so you can plan with confidence.

Built in the IBM Planning Analytics platform, FWP provides a quicker, more cost-effective approach to Financial Workforce Planning.

Remove the burden of repeat admin

Free your team from time-consuming and repetitive admin and instead focus on the tasks that generate the most value for your organisation.

Confidently plan for the future

Look into the future and discover the potential impact of your decisions to ensure that you’ve assessed every option. Understand how external factors, such as inflation rates will influence your plans.

Accurately manage your people costs

Gain peace of mind that your budgets, forecasts and analysis are accurate. See how close to budget you are throughout the year and alter your spend accordingly to ensure that your resources are being deployed to the right place at the right time.

Gain complete visibility of your people costs

Gain a granular view of your employee costs in a way that suits your business and see changes in real-time in order to make improvements and solid plans for the future. Get a clear understanding of your workforce costs, budgets and models right down to the individual level.

Increase ROI

Take a proactive approach to change rather than a reactive one. Drive continuous cost savings for your organisation over time and increase ROI.
