How to Implement Continuous Planning in a Fast-Changing World

You already know that to remain competitive, your company must transition from finance-driven quarterly forecasting to a process of continuous planning.
In a recent study by BPM Partners, 54% of respondents identified more frequent forecasting as an area of increased importance as a result of the current global economic conditions.

So what’s stopping organizations from planning at a pace that best suits their business?

Join Craig Schiff, President & CEO, BMP Partners and Tim Caudill, Tidemark expert in this complimentary, CPE webinar as they review common barriers to initiating a continuous planning process, how to overcome these, and what to look for in a continuous planning solution that delivers real-time, up-to-date information from across the business.

  • Leveraging Technology to Communicate the Story Behind the Numbers Nov 3 2020 1:30 pm UTC 46 mins
    Vincent Lucey, Senior Account Executive - insightsoftware
    Does your finance team spend more time reporting on your company's performance than analyzing and communicating it to stakeholders?

    The more attention finance teams dedicate to spreadsheets and manual reporting, the less likely they are using their analytical skills to enable their companies to understand and make better decisions based on the dynamics of key financial and non-financial drivers of performance.

    Advances in automation now make it possible for finance teams to redirect their efforts away from preparing reports about past performance and focus instead on learning how their companies can positively influence future performance across the enterprise.

    During this session, we will reveal how finance leaders can:
    - Use automation to reduce or even eliminate the time they spend on manual reporting
    - Employ data visualization to communicate about their companies' performance far more clearly and succinctly than they can with numbers alone
    - Align financial and operational data to identify opportunities and inform decisions about how to improve their company performance.

  • BSK Associates Finds Success Reporting From Multiple Data Sources and Empowering Recorded: Oct 8 2020 26 mins
    Connor Strapp, Vice President of Partnerships, insightsoftware and Kris Morton, Chief Information Officer
    Prior to implementing Spreadsheet Server, BSK Associates had trouble creating comprehensive reports with their data living in multiple systems, including their Deltek ERP. With their move from an on-prem to cloud version of Deltek, their reporting didn’t get any easier. PDF reports from Deltek were being manually re-keyed into Excel and custom reports became very complicated, even for Kris Morton, their CIO who is an SQL programmer.
    Join this session to see how Kris was able to perform six months of reports for five different cost centers in less than 20 minutes; empower his business users to create reports they need without going through Deltek technical services; and make migrating from Vision to Vantagepoint easier after implementing Spreadsheet Server, an Excel-based financial and project reporting tool using live Deltek data.

  • How can Financial Analytics Provide a Springboard to Insight? Recorded: Aug 17 2020 31 mins
    Gary Simon, Chief Executive Officer of FSN
    FSN’s newly released research, “The Future of Analytics in The Finance Function,” finds that only 14% of analytic effort is insightful.

    More than 50% of companies are simply reliant on cyclical reporting from ERP systems, with very few CFOs having the capability to go the extra mile. And while standard reporting can provide a robust foundation for analytics, rapidly changing circumstances such as Covid-19, or an aggressive acquisition strategy, bring home the need for a more agile response.

    So, the obvious question is, why are so few companies able to deliver insightful analytics and how can CFOs better prepare to answer any financial question sent their way?

    In this 30-minute webinar, Gary Simon, Chief Executive Officer of FSN, and Henry Schumann, Director of Finance at insightsoftware, discuss the crucial information that can be driven from financial and operational data in the quest for better insights and decision-making.

    Speakers:

    Gary Simon is the Chief Executive Officer of FSN and Leader of the Modern Finance Forum for CFOs. He is a graduate of London University, a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, and a Fellow of the British Computer Society. Gary has more than 30 years’ experience of implementing management and financial reporting systems. He is the author of four books and a popular independent speaker on market developments.

    Henry Schumann is Director of Finance at insightsoftware. With more than 30 years of experience in the finance sector, Henry has an extensive career spanning multiple industries and using various software packages to maximize financial functions such as forecasting, budgeting, process improvement and documentation, variance analysis, NPV, IRR, ROI, capital planning, credit analysis, transfer pricing, ERP implementation, and financial reporting to executives and boards.
  • How Financial Intelligence Can Help Improve Strategic Analysis Recorded: Jul 29 2020 57 mins
    Mark Pockl, SAP Senior Solution Engineer at insightsoftware
    Something all SAP users knows is that when it comes to creating timely reports, they face different challenges both in terms of data access and manipulation. Being forced to rely on IT to create the reports often means organizations must spend too much time preparing the data, instead of analyzing it, preventing them from gaining a real-time, relevant picture.

    This is where Financial Intelligence comes in. But what is Financial Intelligence? And how can it help organizations access real-time, accurate, and drillable data and easily identify the key indicators you should focus on to achieve better results?
