Empower Analytics Expands Delivery of CPM Product and Consulting Services by Forming Partnership with Jedox
Jedox AG, a leading vendor of Enterprise Planning software solutions, today announced a global partnership with Empower Analytics, a US-based consulting firm specializing in Corporate Performance Management (CPM) and business process consulting. The new partnership between both companies will support the Office of Finance with unified solutions for CPM on the Jedox platform.
Empower Analytics is a leading consulting firm specializing in the implementation of CPM solutions. With the new partnership, Jedox gains a seasoned consulting partner who offers CPM business process transformation in the planning and analytics space. Jedox extends its solution delivery options with an organization with a proven track record: Since 2010, Empower has provided CPM solutions for customers in a broad range of industry verticals across the US. Until now, Empower Analytics has opted for Tidemark products as the groundwork for their customized CPM solutions. Through the new partnership, Empower Analytics complements their technology portfolio with self-service planning and forecasting functionalities by Jedox.
Eric Baldwin, founder and CEO at Empower Analytics, explains why both companies are a perfect fit and how the new partnership will add real value to FP&A organizations: “Excel is an integral tool within most organizations, in both function and communication of key data. Incorporating Jedox with both Excel- and web-enabled functionality on a unified database structure offers one version of the truth which extends to all levels of an organization. When customers adopt new CPM solutions they quickly realize when the foundation is built on Jedox, the transformation enablement can be extended to all aspects of the business, not just FP&A.”
“Empower Analytics is a true CPM expert that offers a wide range of solutions from corporate financial planning and human capital planning applications to comprehensive business process improvement. Together with Empower Analytics, Jedox has the opportunity to provide US organizations with easy to use and fast to implement solutions for Enterprise Planning”, says Russell Emerson, Channel Success Manager at Jedox Inc., about the new partnership with Empower Analytics.
