With over 500 successful implementations delivered to UK customers over the last ten years, Advanced Business Solutions is one of the leading Business Intelligence consultancies. Our technology agnostic approach offers a constantly updated ‘best of breed’ portfolio of solutions to ensure the best match of software with your organisation’s specific needs.
As well as extensive success in the field of Business Intelligence, we also offer comprehensive solutions in Business Analytics (sometimes called Corporate or Enterprise Performance Management). Business Analytics drives the ‘intelligence’ of your organisation forward again with insightful, predictive capabilities for your organisation’s performance and success.
As an award-winning software author and SME itself, Advanced Business Solutions has an in-depth understanding of a wide variety of application areas including financial and management accounting, HR & payroll, procurement, sales operations, budgeting and forecasting, document management and more. This is matched and enhanced with deep industry knowledge in both the public and private sector, including an extensive track record with Local Authorities, central government, healthcare, emergency services, education, retail, banking, financial services and Not-For-Profit organisations.
The combination of tough and increasingly unpredictable economic conditions with reduced funding and investment is challenging organisations in new ways. Preserving positive cash flow, reducing the risks facing your organisation and simply keeping up with the rate of change have become much more difficult to achieve.
This combination of operational and industry knowledge plus our robust implementation methodology delivers:
Business Intelligence (BI) systems which enable your organisation to make step change transformations in its performance.
BI systems free your valuable decision makers from processing data so that they can spend more time analysing it for the most ‘intelligent’ choice. You benefit from a ‘single version of the truth’ – access to a single, consistent view of accurate data from disparate systems within your organisation - in a timely fashion.
The cumulative benefits of swifter, higher quality decision making deliver step change improvements in your organisation’s performance.
Business Analytics solutions for continuous performance improvement and long-term strategic advantage.
Business Analytics is a strategic management technique and closed loop feedback mechanism which enables your organisation to successfully achieve its medium and long-term goals. You gain fast, insightful planning and modelling capabilities to test and select the best route forwards in a given set of circumstances. The focus is on your organisation’s capabilities to respond swiftly to changing internal and external conditions (economic, financial, industry-specific) and, more importantly, to anticipate them for an even better outcome.
At Advanced Business Solutions, we believe BI and Business Analytics have highly complementary roles to play in your organisation’s success. This approach has contributed to our 500+ successful implementations with UK customers, including Merton Council, Norfolk Police, Edge Hill College, The Saville Group, London Borough of Camden and Companies House.
"Advanced Business Solutions has supported our business intelligence (BI) development since 2008, and their support has helped us maintain our position as a leading supplier of a wide range of products and services to the world’s process and industrial markets. This is particularly important operating in such large and diverse markets; where accurate information is absolutely essential.
As a global organisation, an effective BI solution is key to monitoring figures, producing reports and allowing the business to see where we can improve and remain at the top of our game. We also need to keep a close eye on emerging trends so that our forecasting is as accurate as possible.
The IBM Cognos software is part of the strategic planning process, which includes a five-year forecast for market and sales development. It allows us to examine our business at every level, something which wouldn’t be possible on a simple spread sheet. It also enables us to factor important information such as sales and key performance indicators into our budget and forecasting."
