Turning data into decisions: a practical guide
Sponsored by: The Access Group
Date: 5 December
Time: 11AM London
Ops director Tracy Jeffery found a way to unify siloed data, streamlining board decisions, simplifying reports and cutting headcount. Join us to find out how.
Collecting and reconciling data from disparate systems is a problem most companies face. Finance and ops folk want to spend their time on analysis and insight, not chasing data. And board members want to be making smarter business decisions, now wondering whether they’re working with half-truths.
It doesn’t need to be this way. Tracy Jeffery, Ops Director at international recruitment firm Amoria Bond, solved these challenges by making a few key changes to her software and processes. Productivity, efficiency and cashflow have all increased. But headcount hasn’t. (No wonder she’s popular with her board colleagues.)
Your own problems are complex, of course – but so were Amoria Bond’s. With offices around the world, operating in different currencies and with differing reporting needs across various departments, it struggled with disparate systems that weren’t able to provide the information needed for smart decisions, and were a huge drain on resources. Fixing those problems has opened a world of opportunities.
On this webinar, you’ll hear the lessons Tracy learned on increasing visibility across all parts of the business, improving board reports and saving significant costs on full time hires. Even if you can’t make it, can you afford not to have someone listening in? Whether it’s you or a finance, IT or ops person who signs up, this is one case study your business can’t afford to miss.
