We understand that our clients have established processes unique to their outcomes and have a wealth of experience suited to improving management processes – often the responsibility of the office of finance. We thus work with our clients to refine and shape management processes to help their organisations define and execute their strategies and measure and monitor performance, as well as implement systems for operational reporting, driver-based planning, budgeting and forecasting, and integrated financial reporting.
We share our integral knowledge and experience of financial and operational data management, business intelligence, process modelling, internal performance reporting, and external statutory and stakeholder reporting. We deploy an innovative and integrated software suite to customise strategic solutions in accordance with our clients’ performance objectives, which gives our clients the ability to exploit relevant performance information and act on insights gained.
Statutory & Stakeholder ReportingOrganizations face a more dynamic and demanding reporting environment, driven by both internal and external stakeholders. The number, complexity and frequency of reports that companies issue is growing, and reporting is expanding to combine more financial and non-financial aspects.
Management ReportingFinancial results, reported via statutory and stakeholder reporting, are important for a company’s existing and potential investors, but there are many other operational issues which contribute to the success of the organisation which will not be revealed by these reports.
Financial & Operational AnalyticsOrganisations which diligently plan, budget and monitor their progress towards goals in support of their strategy and financial performance may often need to dig deeper into their organisation to discover the “Why”, or cause and effect, of non-performance in key areas.
Scenario Planning & ForecastingInsights gained from regular and disciplined monitoring of performance against evolving plans and objectives, and further analysis of the “why” of non-performance, provide input to compare multiple scenarios driven by assumptions of external influences on the organisation.
Tailored Business Performance Management
A number of survey studies have determined that organisations with integrated Business Performance Management systems perform better than their competitors. Benefits include increased profits and return on assets to improved customer and employee satisfaction.
Cortell’s consulting service offering is not a generic model, nor is it aimed at overturning existing processes. Instead, each solution is custom designed for our individual clients, based on the established or desired business model. In the establishment of our solutions, we define strategic objectives, measure and analyse performance, report on performance, and review that performance. Instead of a limited solution, Cortell provides advanced solutions which, aside from improving performance in the short-term, allow our clients to identify ways in which to improve performance in the future.
Many current performance management practices devote too much time to the accumulation of data and too little time to its analysis. Cortell is more concerned with using analysis for the establishment of truly effective performance management. The result is a more agile, intuitive and effective process that is aimed at providing a significant return on investment.
