Case Study

Achieving Better Supply and Demand Planning at a High-Growth Professional Services Firm

Team Size
2 Consultants
Project Duration
5 weeks

The Situation

A high-growth professional services firm needed a more streamlined, automated way to understand gaps in supply (resourcing and hiring) and demand (active projects and estimated pipeline) in order to best plan and analyze business performance. The Accordion team implemented an intelligent, automated forecasting solution in a short period of time that become the basis for the Company’s supply and demand planning.


Budgeting & Forecasting Solution Implementation

Reporting & Analytics

The Execution

  • Worked closely with the Company’s FP&A, IT, and leadership teams to develop a comprehensive supply and demand planning solution in Anaplan that automated an existing manual and error prone Excel modeling process.
  • Deployed and rolled out a solution leveraged by the entire consulting team (300+) – accounting for time entry input, resource modeling, skill search/management, existing project assignments, and future pipeline analytics.
  • Implemented an automated connection to NetSuite, in order to provide a real-time view of any gaps in the weekly plan.

The Results

With Accordion’s help, the Company was able to deploy a more collaborative and intelligent supply and demand model that both saved time in the weekly forecast cycle and provided more automated and actionable business planning.
