1. Single source of truth
One of the most important steps for making efficient decisions as well as guaranteed error-free reporting and controlling is to have access to well-structured information. However, if you have information distributed across several systems and your subsidiaries use a variety of tools and software, then it is necessary to have a central repository for all your data.
Having one central database in place, will allow your finance teams to spend less time in gathering data and more in using the time to analyze it.
2. Business processes alignment
With a top CPM software for finance, companies will be able to ensure that all departments have consistent objectives which are aligned to the goals of the overall company. Business processes alignment can be achieved in two different ways, namely the top-down and the bottom-up approach, which are explained as follows.
- Top-down approach: Overall company objectives are defined first and the separate departments then define goals which are aligned to the overall goals of the company.
- Bottom-up approach: In contrast to the top-down approach, relevant operational as well as financial data is derived from the respective departments. Afterwards, the collected data is used to be consolidated at a company level.
3. Strategic planning
Some CPM software vendors include strategic planning in their offerings, which enables companies to create and implement long-term business plans. This not only helps with establishing new subsidiaries throughout the world, but also can be critical to drive investor decisions.
