Finance & Accounting is a core internal function responsible for planning, organizing, directing and controlling the financial activities of an enterprise, including treasury and risk management; accounting and financial reporting; capital budgeting; policy and regulatory compliance; financial and tax planning; cost control; and other financial administration related activities.
The primary challenges for Finance & Accounting include doing more with less; maximizing shareholder value through prudent financial discipline; aligning corporate and financial strategies; managing investor relations; optimizing financial risk exposures using financial derivatives; hiring and retaining talent; internal audit and control; financial process optimization; and ensuring optimal financial policy and governance.
As the complexities of business grow, so the depth and scope of Finance & Accounting team’s knowledge of their organizations – from management level to day-to-day operations – becomes an increasingly valuable resource, providing the opportunity for the function to expand beyond focusing on Financial Administration to delivering shareholder value through Strategic Finance.
But Finance & Accounting often fails to deliver its intended benefits because of a lack of 360-degree stakeholder intelligence, employee engagement, cognitive insights, and real-time performance management capabilities.
While Analytics-Based Performance Management helps transform enterprise performance management into a function that supports high-performance value creation, the integration of Performax360’s cutting-edge stakeholder engagement and business intelligence technology will help companies accelerate value creation by providing real-time customer and employee touchpoints for better product quality, reduced costs, and faster realization of optimal strategies.
Performax360 is an intelligent enterprise performance management platform that helps improve the effectiveness of the Finance & Accounting function, by ensuring continuous touchpoints and alignment with key internal and external stakeholders.For companies in time pressured industries, moving from stage gate processes to lean and concurrent efforts helps to shorten development timelines. The integration between Analytics-Based Performance Management’s thought leadership and Performax’s intelligent stakeholder engagement technology allows real-time decision-support at both strategic and operational levels.
“It is my pleasure to announce that the enterprise performance management expertise of Analytics-Based Performance Management and Performax360’s stakeholder engagement and business intelligence platform can now be accessed by customers through a seamless single-point solution.
