WE DEVELOP ROLLING FORECAST AND PORTFOLIO
OPTIMISATION SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR BUSINESS

Through Rolling Forecasts and Portfolio Optimisation we enhance the Financial Planning and Analysis
(FP&A) function within the office of the CFO to create business prosperity.

THE VALUE OF BSC ROLLING FORECASTS

  1. Model key operational drivers.
  2. Run multiple scenarios seamlessly.
  3. Complete forecasts on multiple scenarios within 2 days instead of 2-3 weeks, through data automation and efficiency.
  4. Incorporate variability and uncertainty by not forecasting just one number. Instead we plan statistically and get a confidence range of outputs.
  5. Reveal the key drivers of variance between forecast and actuals by comparing two forecast scenarios, each from two different time periods.

THE VALUE OF PORTFOLIO OPTIMISATION

  1. Deal with the combinational explosion of portfolio management through smart optimisation algorithms.
  2. Include multiple constraints by incorporating different thresholds for allowable portfolio combinations, e.g. overall budget, annual budget, processing maximum, transportation maximum, etc.
  3. Risk-proof your capital portfolio by understanding the risks associated with each portfolio combination.

MAXIMUM VALUE, MINIMUM EFFORT

A challenge that all business planning and budgeting functions have is how much detail to include. Too much detail and a long-term strategic business plan becomes a detailed operational budget. Too little detail and accuracy, understanding, and confidence is lost in averages and assumptions. Our Planning Science team understands this balance and can implement a range of business-planning technologies that accurately link operational reality to longer-term economic consequences, resulting in more accurate planning.
