ACPET realises that today, more than ever, educational organisations are expected to produce plans, budgets, forecasts and make informed, timely business decisions with data. But we know that achieving the collaboration needed between systems can be hard, as can moving away from the systems you currently use. But things have changed – come to this workshop and see how you and your organisation can experience the competitive advantages of the cognitive era.
The workshop focuses on forecasting, planning, financial budgeting and reporting, return on investment and how leading organisations can use business and planning analytics solutions to improve their budgeting, planning and forecasting activities.
IBM and authorised business partner Cortell have consulted and developed a variety of solutions for the education sector and other industries. This workshop is aimed at providing practical insights and case studies that will show you ways to remain competitive and react faster. In this hands on session, Matthew from Cortell will demonstrate how you can remove the manual MS Excel spreadsheet based processes, automate processes, improve the accuracy of your plans and reduce the time to complete your budgeting processes. Matthew will show real life examples and case studies of how you can make improvements by linking operational planning to financial outcomes, allowing you to change the various parameters to understand the impact on your business in real-time and perform what-if scenarios to test and understand the results.
The 2.5 hour workshop that includes a complimentary lunch will show you how to reduce costs, increase efficiency, speed up the planning process, deliver more accurate results and spend more time on adding value to your organisation.
IBM and Cortell will also be sharing details of an exclusive offer for ACPET members.
