xP&A Strategy Alignment

Organizations that successfully transform their planning, forecasting, analysis and reporting processes to increase accuracy, agility, collaboration and resilience, are rewarded on the bottom line (example). Even so, it is not uncommon for transformation-driven software initiatives to flounder.

The QueBIT xP&A Strategy Alignment service within QueBIT Advisory Services reduces risk of failure through a process of systematically analyzing and understanding your current process, environment and business challenges. The steps in the sequence are distilled from over twenty years of delivering successful financial planning and analysis (FP&A), sales and operational planning (S&OP) and artificial intelligence-infused integrated planning solutions to mid-sized and large companies in a wide array of industries. Extended Planning and Analysis (xP&A) refers to a comprehensive and coherent planning and analysis landscape that ties all this together, without limiting the needs of any function.

As specialists in planning and analysis, QueBIT’s experts provide in-depth advice customized to your organization’s needs on all aspects of xP&A, including business process change management, organizational collaboration and technology platforms.
