The Pulse and importance of CPM Systems in Uncertain Times

November 18, 2022

The global pandemic has driven the need for greater agility, continuous forecasting, analysis and modeling. This in turn has also increased the demand for corporate performance management systems (CPM systems). More and more companies are concerned about meeting their goals and sales targets as well as offering safe and productive work environments for employees.

From a global standpoint, we are emerging from the large impact the pandemic had on companies worldwide. These uncertain times have forced employers to think creatively and implement work from home (WFH) strategies and ensure that important financial processes continue.

Financial processes such as:

  • Financial and management reporting disclosure
  • Budgeting
  • Planning, forecasting and strategy management
  • Profitability modeling and optimization

Let us take a closer look at the benefits of using a corporate performance management system when unexpected situations such as inflation, recessions and pandemics occur.
