Client case study - Consulting firm achieves total transparency across its business

In the Professional Services industry where internal efficiencies are instrumental in achieving profit targets there is a constant strive to achieve a ‘single version of the truth’, enabling you to make business decisions with confidence and not rely on guesswork. Having complete transparency across the business will contribute to taking your organisation to the next level.

In this next post in the ‘Dispelling the Myths’ blog series, I want to focus on whether it’s truly possible to gain one accurate, real-time version of your business information. In a recent interview, David Creighton, CIO at Analysys Mason discussed how he wanted to see a ‘single version of the truth’ and recognised that having disparate systems across the business was not giving him the vital information he needed.

Consolidate your systems

Consolidating your IT infrastructure makes sense for your business. Many Professional Service firms, such as Analysys Mason, grow their business through acquisition. While a larger company brings fantastic benefits, a constant issue is the integration of multiple, disconnected IT systems.

However, with a enterprise resource planning (ERP) system you will reduce the risks associated with new acquisitions and can expect improved efficiency and greater control of front and back-office functions. You will have the ability to see what is happening in all corners of your business right now and gain foresight of what is coming down the line.

Case study proof

If this is a challenge which resonates with your business, please spend a few minutes listening to David Creighton explain why Analysys Mason implemented the Deltek ERP system and how they are now able to grow the firm confident that they can now see a ‘single version of the truth’.
