Our team of financial modellers, data scientists, data engineers, industry experts and software developers deploy planning technologies and methodologies to provide our clients with a comprehensive planning capability that supports critical executive decisions and maximise company value.

Integrated planning, rapid scenario planning, optimization, and automated rolling forecasting ensure the best plans are made and stay valid over time.



With lengthy project timelines, billions of dollars in assets, and significant sums of money required to sustain and grow a capital-intensive business, identifying the optimal basket of capital investments to maximise shareholder value while mitigating portfolio risk is essential.

Our Qerent Portfolio Optimisation application is designed to address the key challenges surrounding the long-term executive decisions on which investment opportunities to pursue (and when) by providing an integrated, practical, and agile strategic planning capability.


A driver based rolling forecast is integral to agile business planning and are now a critical addition to the traditional approach of using a static annual budget. A Rolling Forecast allows for re-planning throughout the financial year based on changing market conditions or operational realities that must be accounted for, while also providing an initial view of the following year’s annual budget the closer you get to the end of the financial year.

Our Qerent Rolling Forecast Application integrates to key source systems and enables a driver-based Rolling Forecast capability for your organisation with advanced analytics, diagnostics, scenario planning, automation and seamless reporting of insights/recommendations.


Very energetic team that is a pleasure to work with.
