MHR and IBM: faster, more accurate planning starts here
Effective planning, budgeting and forecasting all require accurate data, a single source of truth, collaboration across the whole organisation and the flexibility to adjust plans and forecasts quickly.
We combine IBM Gold partnership status with unrivalled expertise in HR, payroll and finance transformation to offer a fully flexible range of consultancy, upgrade, implementation, training, pre-built applications and support services, designed to help achieve maximum return on investment from IBM’s flagship planning platform.
We can help you to:
- Move beyond Excel to swift, accurate planning on demand
- Get the full picture with integrated planning
- Provide self-service modelling and predictive forecasting
Transform your planning with IBM and MHR
IBM’s technology combined with MHR’s implementation expertise can take your organisational decision making to the next level.
Move beyond Excel
An estimated 40% of enterprises continue to use Excel as a primary planning tool despite its limitations. The Planning Analytics for Excel add-on allows users to interact via a familiar interface but with greater audit trails for compliance and collaboration.
iTrent’s HR and payroll solutions generate a rich seam of people data. When combined with data from across the wider business in a single platform, it provides the bedrock for truly informed operational and strategic decision making, eliminating silos to extract key insights for the whole organisation.
Thanks to easy-to-use modelling, your team can ask ‘what if?’ and get answers they can trust. Taking existing plans, budgets and forecasts as a starting point, you can change any operational variable(s) and immediately see the ripple effects across the entire organisation to assess multiple possible courses of action, and make the right decisions more quickly.
In-built statistical algorithms assess historical values within your data to identify trends and seasonal patterns. You can create reliable forecasts quickly and easily and demonstrate how predictions were determined.
