MEET YOUR NEWLY OPTIMIZED PLANNING PROCESS

By Brian McCarthy, Director of Sales, RAMP Consulting

The financial planning process is often an intense and complex process that spans multiple business groups within most organizations and consists of many internally home-grown financial models and spreadsheets. The bulk of time seems to be spent on managing the process and coordinating tasks, to create a unified view from across the organization, rather than analyzing the results to enable improved business decision making—the original intent of the exercise.

The RAMP planning platform introduces the benefits of standardization and unification to the planning process.

Comprehensive views can be achieved from differing levels within the o rganization, from cost center to business and overarching corporate level plans. Changes, what- if analyses and modified assumptions can be evaluated with greater efficiency and the latest, most up to date findings can be distributed in real ‐time to key decision makers within the organization.
