Shearwater is the leading cloud solutions consulting firm for ERP as well as planning and budgeting in the larger Asia region, from Singapore, South East-Asia to China, Japan and Korea.
We help companies improve every aspect of the planning, budgeting, and forecasting process, including:
Budgeting more effectively—Document the budgeting process, educate system users across the organization, monitor company-wide budget submissions and approvals from anywhere at any time, and enforce budget rules and timelines.
Planning more effectively—Model your business quickly and test multiple scenarios easily, so you can prepare realistic financial and operational plans that help your organization achieve its goals. Driver-based modeling helps your company define its business success factors, key contributors to those factors, and then plan them in detail providing a roadmap to improved performance.
Testing "what if" scenarios—Comprehensively model your business and perform real-time "what if" scenario planning. You can change business assumptions, and see the impacts on the entire model, freeing you to concentrate on the actual plan instead of the math. While planning, you can build in calculations, allocations, phasing, market factors, seasonality, and more.
Ensuring realistic results with forecasting— We help select the optimum method for data analysis, and create benchmarks to test the likely accuracy of employee-submitted forecasts, ultimately reducing forecast game-playing. You can also use our templates forecast to jump-start your planning and budgeting process. Forecasting lets you predict not only at a summary level, but also at a detailed level, such as product line, region, or sales channel.
Adjusting actions to achieve goals— With our ongoing support we support you to shift planning away from less accurate historical budgeting and forecasting, and move toward continuous predictive modeling and rolling forecast models-automatically adjusting the revenue targets to meet your goals as each period closes and a new period rolls forward.
