UVID Consulting: Pioneering the Art and Science of EPM Implementation

Ramya Krishnaganth, Founder and Managing Director
Enterprise Performance Management programs (EPM) — sets of management processes, data, and people knitted together by technology—enable improved decision-making, ultimately separating successful companies from the rest. However, implementing a proper EPM program proves to be challenging as most companies fail to recognize that it relies on both the science of technology and the art of change management. These ideals often get lost among the vast amounts of data existing in siloed systems, preventing companies from having a single source of truth, which is foundational to sound EPM implementations. In addition, the extensive use of Excel sheets and the redundancy of manual processes limit companies from enhancing their business performance and success.

It is at this juncture that UVID Consulting comes into play. The company helps clients design optimized and seamless systems to manage their finance, sales, and operations performance cohesively. “As a trusted EPM advisor, the company helps implement EPM solutions with innovation and creativity so that the solution enables business success,” states Ramya Krishnaganth, the Founder and Managing Director of UVID Consulting. “We collaborate with businesses of all sizes and from all industry verticals to help deliver business excellence,” she adds.

To help companies attain a streamlined EPM, UVID Consulting takes a design thinking approach. The company’s most significant value proposition is its capability to understand the clients’ business areas, drivers of business success, processes, and challenges. It analyzes different datasets, stakeholders, and the insights they need to drive better performance. UVID simplifies the overall EPM experience and magnifies the results by finding the right set of processes, data, and technology solutions. They also focus on fast-tracking technology adoption through a uniquely inclusive approach.

UVID Consulting focuses on three areas of EPM service—consulting, implementation, and ongoing support. The company’s consultants support clients with decision-making, choosing the right products, undergoing readiness assessments, and analyzing their maturity. Often, companies need clarity on the skills and collaboration required to launch a successful EPM program. They also typically have concerns about enhancing their business value and performing different types of process harmonization and standardization. UVID Consulting helps simplify the company’s understanding of its data by bringing various business teams together to audit their data requirements. They are then able to more seamlessly tie all the datasets together as a single source of truth and eliminate several previously existing data discrepancies. They further standardize the data so that all departments within the client’s organization view the data similarly, with a uniform definition.

“We fulfill the client’s needs for data gelling, and we conduct comprehensive data discovery to allow the seamless interaction of several systems while offering a robust EPM solution,” mentions Senthil Ashokan, the Technology Transformation Specialist at UVID Consulting.

As a full-service growth advisor, UVID Consulting helps clients with predictive planning and analysis and allows them to identify different business use cases. These use cases are then narrowed down to the most promising through predictive modeling. Using multiple technologies, UVID enables its clients to generate reports based on essential KPIs and financial metrics. This systems-thinking approach has the added benefit of building the much-needed collaboration between the finance, operations, sales, and data teams.

Once a client is onboarded, UVID Consulting creates multiple EPM designs, keeping the user’s story and needs in mind, which ultimately validates the usability of the designs. After following this iterative process, they help their clients with their overall change management and educates them on efficient systems maintenance.

UVID Consulting continues to be at the helm of crafting perfect, integrated EPM solutions for their clients. In addition, they will continue to expand their outreach across manufacturing, healthcare, insurance, technology, and entertainment. “Being anchored to our customer-centric approach, we are continuously expanding our ecosystem of product vendors. We also look to broaden our presence with fractional CFO providers for small and medium businesses,” concludes Ramya.
