Solutions for Functional Areas
Why is it happening?
What is likely to happen in the future?
How should we plan for that future?
Comprehensive planning is essential for success. Yet companies often struggle with delivering timely, reliable forecasts and plans that align operational tactics with financial targets.
The Cortell team helps our customers create comprehensive planning by integrating process and analytics of key business functions across their organisations. Business functions such as budgeting, forecasting, revenue and planning with functions such as pricing, marketing, sales and workforce management. This not only allows their organisations the ability to see across the spectrum of the organisation but also provides comprehensive ‘What if’ and scenario planning capability to assess the impact of change in any one or multiple of those areas in real time.
This is the only approach to helping organisations answer the questions:
- what is happening?
- why is it happening?
- what is likely to happen in the future?
- how should we plan for that future?
