To find success in today’s uncertain economy, it is critical that businesses take measures to plan and then monitor against the delivery of those plans. However, due to a reliance on antiquated or inappropriate technologies to run their planning, budgeting, forecasting, consolidation and reporting processes, many organisations find that they are unable to easily support their corporate strategy or growth plans.
By combining our corporate performance management expertise with the leading financial reporting software platform, Planful (formally 'Host Analytics'), RSM is able to partner with your organisation to achieve your business objectives more effectively and efficiently.
Partnering with Planful and RSM will result in you spending less time in spreadsheets and more time making faster, more strategic business decisions.
With Planful you can automate your financial planning, budgeting, and forecasting processes. Leverage pre-built, good-practice templates or build your own planning templates to meet the financial, workforce, capital planning needs of your organisation. Support continuous planning with rolling forecasts and driver-based planning, to keep up to the pace of your business.
Planful's consolidation tools accelerate and automate your financial close, compliance, and reporting processes. You can easily connect data from multiple systems across your organisation. Whether your company has more than one general ledger, plans to acquire another company, leverages global currencies, or is preparing for an external audit, you can benefit from Planful's powerful consolidation software features.
Planful's financial modelling features allow you to create and connect operational and financial models that align and link with your financial plans and forecasts. If you update business driver assumptions in one model you will see the impact on all associated models as well as your financial plan. Using driver-based assumptions specific to your business, and unlimited dimensions within models, you can increase business agility and drive actionable insight throughout your organisation.
By centralising financial and operational data, leveraging self-service, dynamic and interactive reporting, users can quickly and easily generate financial, ad-hoc, management and even board reports that are dynamic and always up to date. The software enables smoother collaboration and allows you to drill down through live, accurate, interactive and financial reports.
Planful offers powerful visualisation and interactive dashboards for both financial and non-financial data. This helps you keep an eye on key metrics that drive your business performance. The financial dashboard shows leading as well as lagging indicators - so you can easily spot trends, identify performance gaps, and stay ahead of your business problems.
