Every organization is doing enterprise performance management (EPM) in some fashion. Think about the key financial processes your organization runs – creating the annual budget, monthly and quarterly management reporting, analyzing results, modeling new business scenarios, and reporting to external stakeholders.

Are you struggling through these processes with spreadsheets and email? Is your organization held back by outdated, legacy budgeting or reporting applications? Maybe it’s time for a new approach.

Attend this webinar to learn how cloud-based EPM applications from Host Analytics are helping over 650 companies reduce reliance on spreadsheets, shorten the annual budgeting cycle, implement rolling forecasts, accelerate reporting, and improve insights for management and external stakeholders. See a demonstration of how a cloud-based EPM platform can be deployed in weeks and easily adopted by both finance and line of business users.
After attending this event you will be able to:
Reduce reliance on spreadsheets and manual processes
Leverage your Excel skills while using the power of the cloud
Streamline, and reduce the pain of the annual budgeting process
Implement rolling forecasts to bring more agility into the planning process
Empower and drive accountability among line managers with timely, insightful reporting and analysis
