Budgeting & Forecasting Solution Implementation
The Accordion Approach
Accordion works with clients from strategy to implementation – configuring and customizing the CPM/EPM system to meet the business requirements. This includes:
CPM/EPM Strategy & Project Guidance
We engage early to best align finance and business processes with technology requirements.
Software Selection & Assessment
We take a “tech-agnostic” approach to assisting clients with software selection and road mapping.
Our consultants bring more than tech expertise; we’re able to advise on best practices in finance, accounting, and operations.
Data & Systems Integration
By connecting the data behind the scenes, we make manual data collection/consolidation more automated and seamless.
Managed Services & Support
We have a dedicated onshore managed services team that helps augment client teams in both technical and functional areas.
If a new system is not required, our consultants are able to optimize existing technology to improve efficiency and scalability.
Featured Case Studies
The Accordion team has helped us drive real business value through technology enablement. We’re leveraging the solutions they helped us develop to better manage and forecast product profitability, link our sales forecasts with financial plans, and optimize spend.
