Put data at the heart of your financial initiatives
Valuable finance transformation is about changing not what your finance department does, but what it’s for.
It's about getting the most out of your data, automating your finance admin, empowering your finance team, and identifying growth opportunities.
Why do you need finance transformation?
Too often, the job of finance teams and reporting departments is much harder than it should be. They become bogged down in number crunching and routine reporting, leaving little time for strategy. The answers to critical questions are in the figures, but unlocking them takes too long.
We specialise in helping organisations like yours transform their finance department into a strategic powerhouse. We give you the tools and know-how to automate key tasks, putting insights into the hands of the people who need them, and equipping you to make the right, strategic decisions faster and with confidence.

Extended Planning & Analysis (xP&A)
Gartner has coined the phrase extended planning and analysis (xP&A) to describe the trend that suggests by 2024, 70% of all new planning and analysis projects will reach beyond finance to support operational processes.
Traditional financial planning and analysis (FP&A), links revenue, expenses, and capital expenditure data and pulls these elements together for budgeting, reporting, and forecasting. As its name suggests, FP&A’s focus is from the financial perspective.
xP&A takes the automated planning tools and processes used by finance and extends their usage to operational planners. The end result is that everyone - from departmental managers through to the CFO and wider C-suite - gets a more complete and up-to-date view of the business.
We're hosting a webinar demonstrating how to achieve xP&A. Find out more and register to attend here.
