Roadmaps

Empowering finance teams to be a strategic partner to the business is just one key step to expanding the role of finance within an organization. With the right tools in place, finance can be more than just pencil pushers and planners, they can play a strategic role in analyzing business results and making smarter decisions. Strafford is armed to be your finance partner and to help make digital transformation a reality. We can help you better align and automate your financial planning, budgeting, auditing and reporting processes, and we offer expert Hyperion consulting services.

When you engage with Strafford, we will present and demonstrate how the latest Enterprise Performance Management (EPM)Business Intelligence, and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) technologies can be leveraged to create a finance ecosystem that promotes alignment, accuracy and value across the enterprise. We define a roadmap to be both a comprehensive strategic review, and a document that shows you how to incorporate these technologies into your organization. The roadmap will also show you how to design training for your users on not only how to use the new applications, but how to enhance and extend them over time.  Empowering finance teams to be a strategic partner to the business is just one key step to expanding the role of finance within an organization.

Best Practices

Consulting is more than giving advice, it’s about setting and exceeding expectations. That is a Strafford promise. Our team of professional finance, technology and project management advisers take time to not only recommend the best tools to use, such as Oracle Cloud or Hyperion, but we also share industry best practices on how to use and leverage them in the most efficient way.

When you partner with Strafford, you get best practices for the business, app performance (benchmarking), team efficiency, and for data and system security and compliance. During the entire implementation process, we provide best practices that will drive measurable performance improvement. Even after the implementation phase is over, we’ll be available to support and maintain your finance environment.
