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

Model your budgets and forecasts with accuracy and anticipate your organisations’ future costs
Re-forecasting (RF) allows you to review your budget part way through the year based on actuals.
Carry out calculations like pay awards, pay protection, pension contribution and restructure modelling.
Model scenarios to decide on the best outcome before committing to a decision.
Produce a Medium Term Forecasting Strategy (MTFS) and a LRP (Long Range Plan) up to 10 years using current financial data.
Tailored to the unique requirements of your business and suitable for all company schemes, including pension and maternity schemes, we can alter the look and feel of the system to your branding so it’s consistent with your employee experience.
‘Transaction backouts’ provide a constant audit trail, showing which users have run processes and allowing them to be undone. Relax in the knowledge that everything your users are doing is recorded and changeable.
FWP links directly to your HR system and converts HR information (salary, NI, pension, bonus payments, student loan etc.) into monthly, weekly or even daily costs.
