Can you afford a tangle of data?
With the numerous economic challenges all agencies face, you can no longer afford the tangle of data being reported in yet another spreadsheet and the potential risks that brings.
We work with agencies of all shapes and sizes to select the right systems and help them to understand the benefits and costs of the different options available, including whether to upgrade or replace.
Our capabilities extend to process and systems reviews, systems selection, implementation, project management, development, consultancy, training and report writing. Support during and after implementation is a core part of our service offering.
We develop business plans and models for operation planning, forecasting and due diligence.
We also build business intelligence dashboards and complex financial consolidations.
Process and Systems Review
At the outset of most engagements, we run interactive sessions with our clients to map processes, the various systems and extent to which they are being used within their agencies. This is crucial to gaining a proper understanding of the areas of greatest pain, typically lack of control, poor visibility and multiple layers of manual data processing. We strive to ensure all our work adds value and we make recommendations on our findings, without complicating the picture.
During the course of our many years implementing and working with numerous different systems, we've built comprehensive profiles of the features, functionality, pricing and vendor support of over 12 ERP systems and similar number of CPM or planning systems. We'll take what we find in the Discovery Workshops and present options which best match our clients current and aspirational needs, as well as budget. We will always advise what is most appropriate for our clients.

We are experts in successfully delivering systems for our agency clients, and have the depth in our team to manage full cycle implementations, from the process discovery through all the phases of system design, build, UAT (user acceptance testing), advanced and basic user training, data migration and project management.
