Guest Blogger: Our special blog guest contributor is Denise Tsang from Raven Bay Services, a Telpay client whom we met at this past Spring’s Financial Executives International Conference. Raven Bay Services provides guidance and best-in-class technology, integration and talented technical services.
Recently Raven Bay Services was a sponsor and exhibitor at the annual Financial Executives International Conference in Winnipeg. We were excited to be invited since our focus and passion is utilizing information technology to help financial executives leverage trusted data to understand the state of their business. We are head quartered in Western Canada and have helped organizations in various industries streamline and improve their reporting processes, so what better match for us than the FEI members at this conference?
The theme of the conference was “Leadership beyond Finance”. These events are a great opportunity to collaborate with colleagues, partners and clients. One of the many rewards of attending conferences is to hear firsthand the challenges business leaders face. Everyone is keen to participate when it comes to solving problems.
Throughout the conference a similar message circulated among the controllers and CFOs of major companies in Canada. Their primary complaint when it comes to analytics it is the lack of consolidated views and reliable data which impacts their ability to make timely decisions
One of our solutions which seemed to resonate with the audience was our Key Performance Indicator (KPI) Dashboard ,it brings all of your data into a consolidated view.. The dashboard helps users avoid making decisions based on a collection of spreadsheets, or worse, no information at all!
The KPI dashboard technology gives executives the opportunity to combine financial and operational data for decision making and performance monitoring. Many executives were surprised to hear efficiencies and improvements in performance management can be made incrementally and yield quick wins in a relatively short amount of time.
