Corporate Performance Management
Senturus specializes in delivering fast-growing, mid-sized companies with the comprehensive data analysis systems and methodologies that comprise Corporate Performance Management (CPM). Senturus helps enhance their strategic decision making, dramatically improving their ability to plan, monitor and analyze the direction of their business.
Senturus breaks CPM into three components:
- Planning, Budgeting and Forecasting: What happened? What will happen?
What do I want to happen?
- Business Intelligence: Why did it happen?
- Scorecarding and Dashboarding: What is happening?
Common pain points addressed by CPM
Companies turning to Senturus for CPM solutions have achieved new levels of growth, tracking performance using different business applications (e.g. ERP, CRM, HR, Payroll, Project Accounting, Custom). Often, Excel spreadsheets or homegrown patchwork systems are used to assemble and then manually massage this silo'd data. Forced to work with differing data formats at varying degrees of quality, organizations end up with a time-consuming clean-up and evaluation process that eliminates any true value.
The result: inconsistent information, wasted time, misinformed decisions, reactive approach to running the business.
Planning and Business Information technology has emerged to integrate the valuable asset represented by all this business data. But without an intelligent and informed approach to its implementation, it's just more software capturing and holding volumes of more data.
Senturus: CPM data while it's actionable...not history
Senturus knows the right business questions to ask, how to gather the relevant data, and how to process it to deliver meaningful, relevant, actionable reports in real time. Whether you have already decided on the BI or Planning system to incorporate or are just starting your research, Senturus will work with you to design the Corporate Performance Management system that will deliver proactive corporate insight. Senturus will enable your organization to become more agile and competitive by providing organizational alignment, visibility and greater confidence.
We can help you close your quarter earlier...for starters
Shortening the quarter end to three to four days, instead of three to four weeks, is just one example of how a Senturus CPM system will save time and money. Our ability to deliver accurate, daily reports and offer granular detail as well as the big picture allows executives to quickly notice negative variances and take positive action while there is still time to affect the quarter results.
The result with Senturus is proactive and informed decision making, better forecasting, and overall business optimization.
Smart win approach to CPM
Senturus understands that many organizations are not prepared to implement all the elements of CPM at once. The Senturus approach focuses on smart win projects that can be scoped and implemented quickly, rather than taking a big bang approach that becomes cumbersome and protracted, causing you to lose momentum. With our targeted and staggered implementation approach, our clients realize provable success and rapid ROI, ensuring internal support for the next step of the process.
