Aligning HR & Finance: How ReddyIce Transformed to Market Leader

Date: Wednesday, October 15, 2014
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT There are no CPE Credits for this Solution Demonstration.
Effectively managing resources is challenging for any company, and a lack of visibility into information on operational factors that impact margins and drive demand makes it nearly impossible. Despite the fact that companies dedicate 36 percent of revenues to human capital, many accept having less than 20/20 vision into the return they’re getting from this huge investment. How are companies leveraging technology to enable systems across the enterprise (from HR to Finance) to communicate with each other to deliver the real-time information company leaders need to optimize company investments, and the consumption of company resources.

Join us as Elliott Lester, VP of IT at ReddyIce shares how his company was able to leverage enterprise-wide visibility to break down operational silos, transform processes, improve product margins, and develop actionable metrics to drive the allocation of key company resources to transform from a company on the brink of extinction to a market leader with sustainable competitive advantage.

Manish Patel, Global Vice President of Collaborative Solutions, will join Elliott in sharing actionable advice for companies to leverage in:

  • Identifying the metrics that really impact business and help drive demand
  • Building flexible resource gap analysis models with real-time consumable data
  • Understanding when to incorporate unstructured external data to improve resource and product demand predictability
  • Gain a real-time view of headcount by integrating key human capital management data (HCM) into your company’s financial planning environment
After attending this event you will be able to:
Understand the technology and techniques that allow disparate business systems to communicate with each other effectively to give companies enterprise-wide visibility into key data
How to identify opportunities to improve the allocation of key company resources
Identify the data your company needs to more effectively forecast factors that impact your company’s margins and product demand and how it’s done

Event Sponsor Tidemark
Tidemark - Tidemark doesn't think that you can move forward while looking back. An historical, database-structured view of the world is not the way businesspeople see the world. They don't have time to learn the intricacies of advanced modeling tools. They don't ask questions in SQL. They need information, now. They need today's context. And they need to know their options and the implications of each—before the decision window closes. Tidemark's unified performance management apps give all decision makers real-time analytics, complete with their personal business contexts. Now they know what if, why, and what to do about it. They can look forward, instead of back. And because Tidemark apps are delivered from the cloud, your team always has what they need, anywhere they happen to be.
