Faster

Organizations can no longer wait until the end of the close or forecast cycle to learn the financial health of the company. To remain competitive today, organizations need access to key performance metrics and financial information on a weekly, daily, even real time basis.

Smarter

Financial information must be reliable, timely and insightful to drive actionable decision making and must provide both historical and forward-looking views to mitigate risks and take advantage of opportunities.

Financial Close & Consolidations

At Strategic iQ, we bring unparalleled expertise and innovative solutions to help companies streamline their global Month-end close and Financial Consolidations process while enforcing the most stringent internal controls to ensure the optimal level of data quality and reporting accuracy is achieved.  Leveraging our functional and technical expertise, we can design and build robust end-to-end solutions that achieve optimal efficiency and effectiveness.

Planning, Budgeting & Forecasting

An effective planning solution must enable modeling within the system itself and not simply consolidate offline data.  In doing so, corporate finance can confidently enforce standard planning methodologies and assumptions for consistent reporting and analysis across the organization.  Strategic IQ’s proven methodologies are optimized for achieving value by encapsulating such modeling techniques within the system itself.  This approach results in a dynamic system capable of advanced What if? and scenario-based modeling.

Strategic iQ

Profitability & Cost Management

Consolidated financial results must include visibility to underlying drivers that provide insightful analysis and actionable decision making.  Strategic IQ’s proven methodologies identify key business drivers that impact revenue and costs across the various dimensions of the organization and incorporate into the system design.  The results are a system that enables detailed analysis including an automated bridge for variance analysis down to the product, customer, region level.
