You know the data is there but it never seems to be in a format that you want it or available when you need it. Most small and mid-sized organizations struggle with business intelligence, reporting, and data analytics. Transactional systems are often used to capture key data points but the lack of integration between systems leaves a gap in getting information into the hands of owners and executives in a timely manner. If your organization is reliant on excel and access databases to compile financial and operational performance data, you are likely using valuable resources that can be deployed elsewhere. There are numerous reporting, data warehouse, and business intelligence solutions available to small and mid-sized businesses at a competitive price point. Our consultants help organizations find and implement the right solution to improve management reporting.
Do you have the tools to flash relevant data to key executives and support critical business decisions?
ATX helps clients define key business metrics that business leaders need access to in order to appropriately steer the organization towards it’s objectives. Once defined, we work with our clients to effectively deliver this data in a timely manner connecting data points from the relevant internal business systems and external data sources.
Do you know how you stack up against your peers?
Benchmarking allows organizations to measure performance against industry peers and benchmark values related to costs, cycle times, performance, and staffing. Once benchmarks are established and compared to peer organizations, process improvements can be prioritized based on areas of biggest impact to develop an improvement plan. Key performance indicators (KPIs) can also be established to allow your organization to measure and monitor results of these initiatives as part of a continuous improvement process.
In addition to custom developed reporting packages, ATX often works with our clients to leverage the existing financial reporting tools available within their ERP application to create and distribute relevant financial statements. We help our clients better understand their data and seek to avoid the challenges many face in reporting with too many sources of data, disconnected systems, and a reliance on spreadsheets for key information.
