Performance Management (CPM/EPM)
Building Platforms for Financial Intelligence
CFOs lacking a Performance Management solution are a lot like drivers without a digital GPS system; they’re unable to navigate effectively or re-route due to unforeseen obstacles because they’re reliant on unsophisticated, manual, non-dynamic tools. For CFOs under high levels of scrutiny (whether private equity-backed or public), this simply won’t cut it. A Performance Management solution (also known as a CPM/EPM system) is an integral component of the modern CFO’s technology stack – as it enables better planning and forecasting, improved reporting and close processes, and actionable business oversight using automated KPIs.
At Accordion, our industry-leading Performance Management experts have successfully implemented more than 500 CPM/EPM systems over the last 15+ years – resulting in empowered Finance teams, increased value creation, and happy sponsors. While you can call on us for anything in the realm of Performance Management, our consultants specialize in Budgeting & Forecasting and Close & Consolidations.
