FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

If you are exploring whether a new system can help to improve your planning, consolidation and reporting processes, and you want to have a framework for evaluation and get a better understanding of the benefits you can achieve then this will be useful for you.

At AIS we work with different vendors but ultimately this process is agnostic of technology and can be applied to any technology you may wish to evaluate in the future.

 
 
 
 

We focus on best practices in Planning and Reporting and carry out an AS IS / TO BE analysis.

Planning covers strategic, financial and operational plans and a key focus is how we can integrate these different plans across your organisation to bring better consistency and integrity with any plan numbers or commentary. Planning is a blanket term including strategic planning, budgeting, forecasting and business simulations.

Reporting covers operational performance, management and statutory reporting across the group. We explore options for better business intelligence reporting, predictive analytics and scorecard visualisations.

The concepts we cover are based on the adoption of generally accepted best practices and in helping you move towards integrated business planning and reporting processes.

 
 
 

There is no fee. You will get over GBP 5,000 in free consulting from AIS for us to go through this process with you. And the tools and materials you receive have a significantly higher value attached were you to go through a big 4 firm on a similar exercise. If you are looking to run a project to improve finance then this is an easy decision – you get a significant armoury of insight and value for the time you put in.

 
 
 

We normally schedule a 2 hour web meeting (or face to face meeting). This is normally sufficient for you to get a big picture view and for us to get enough information to compile your business case report. We are flexible though. So if you need more detail or a focus on s specific areas then we can have a separate session to accommodate this.

Anyone from the office of finance who is charged with looking at improvements or finance process owners in the areas that you are looking to improve. IT or systems team members will also find this useful.

 

We will look at finance operations from the eight perspectives mentioned above so you get real insights into how you can improve existing processes. You will take valuable insights, action point to implement straight away and a business case for implementing improvements to share with your colleagues.

Yes. You need to complete the pre-implementation questionnaire. This normally takes about 30 minutes and we can schedule a call to do this with you or to review ahead of the workshop.

Why do we have a pre-implementation questionnaire to complete? It saves time and helps us focus on the right areas in the workshop.
