“The features of the EPM models are specific to the business functions and they congeal with the data and the business process.
Summarizing Techwave’s expertise, Gummadapu highlights a case study of a one of the large wholesale distributor. Even though the client was diligently planning and forecasting in manual, they lacked in monitoring and addressing their planning process that fine-tunes their performance on a regular basis. “So we evaluated the entire scenario and worked with them to implement EPM solution for end-to-end rolling forecast, annual planning and financial consolidations,” delineates Gummadapu. The client gained better insighton their business performance, which lead them to take action to make sure that they are providing right resources or investments in a right place with timely data. The client benefited the value in terms of combining the solutions that not only gathered the data but also provided the insight for the client.

In the near future, “We see ourselves as a strong player in terms of providing SaaS models of pre-defined EPM solutions that can address the future business challenges.”
