New Analytics to Drive Working Capital Results
The Crowe Analysis Platform working capital solution brings innovative analytics to the massive amounts of working capital data that is available, yet hidden, within ERP systems. Flexible and fully automated, this software as a service (SaaS) tool pulls financial and operational data from multiple business systems into a secure analytical engine that does not require the company to purchase any hardware or load any software.
Dozens of graphical and best practice analytics of inventories, accounts payable, and accounts receivable work with many of your existing platforms to provide views across all locations in ways that traditional ERP systems simply can’t.
The Crowe Analysis Platform focuses on the ERP data-driven components of working capital: inventory, payables, and receivables.
The result: improved decision-making capabilities that can have a positive effect on a manufacturing operation – from payables and receivables management to complex strategic and operational decisions about pricing, inventory management, and customer service levels.
Meaningful Information Drives Better Business Decisions
Unlike ad hoc or one-off business intelligence initiatives, the Crowe Analysis Platform offers an expedient, automated, and repeatable process that manufacturers can perform on a recurring basis as part of an ongoing effort to optimize their working capital position. Using a Pareto-based segmentation approach, the platform offers insights into a range of relevant issues, including:
- Inventory reduction and optimization
- Accurate system parameters
- Lead-time reductions
- Customer service models including fill rates, and terms
- Vendor-managed or consigned inventories
- Portfolio management and product rationalization
- Pricing and margins
- Receivables management and recovery
- Accounts payable and cash flow management
