Holland Parker’s consulting services include: implementing EPM solutions to streamline financial processes and analyzing and optimizing complex business processes to support or transform the way you do business.
Our Implementation Process
Financial software is only as effective as the strategic plan behind it. Holland Parker’s business consultants begin each engagement by meeting with the client to fully understand their short- and long-term goals. We then assess existing systems and processes and develop a road map that is scalable and dependable. We have led businesses of all sizes through full system implementations, application redesigns, integration of new software with legacy systems and product upgrades. We also have experience leading a team or stepping in at key points to support an implementation in progress.
Our business consultants have experience working within both the Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) and OneStream Corporate Performance Management (CPM) product suites. The result? Delivery of the best solution for your organization.
- Scope and Design
During this phase of an engagement, our business consultants work side-by-side with your team to develop the scope of the project and select the right software product to meet your company’s specific needs. Your team is integrally involved in the design process to make sure there is agreement on all key requirements and design decisions. This ensures a complete understanding of how the applications will function once deployed.
- Build and Test
At this point, the Holland Parker team begins building and testing the software. During this phase, we involve your team in build demonstrations, conference room pilots and status meetings at key milestone checkpoints during the process.
During the training phase, end-users have the opportunity to work in a hands-on environment with the actual applications and learn their “new” process using their own data. Our team works directly with the users to practice their actual process, using real tasks. This allows them to ask real questions and become better prepared for deployment of the new system.
During this phase, our business consultants will deploy your solution and transition management responsibility to your team. At this point, we will also determine what level of support you might need going forward, if any. Our goal is to provide value and establish the basis for a long-term partnership with your company, whether you need long- or short-term support to your team.
- Post Implementation Support
Once the EPM software is deployed, we provide several options for ongoing post-implementation Managed Services including various contract options and 24-hour support.
Business Process Modeling
Holland Parker’s consulting services include working with our clients to analyze existing business processes and recommending modifications that will measurably improve overall process efficiency. Our clients see the most dramatic improvements when we integrate EPM and BI technology solutions into their process improvements.
To complement our BPM consulting services, we have built our own proprietary technology framework called Texo. Texo bridges the gap between disparate business processes and allows an analyst or average business user to focus on gaining insight into their business rather than understanding the technology.
