Controlling and reporting

Driving decisions with real-time data

Controlling and reporting is the gathering, distribution and – most importantly – use of information to evaluate the performance of different organizational resources and processes.

There is a staggering amount of information ready to be transformed into actionable insights in any modern business. To unlock its value, you need to determine exactly what data in which form needs to be made available to whom in the organization.

Controlling and reporting is part of  ‘data consumption’ - the last step in the data and analytics process, following data capturing, management and modelling. It concerns only the bare facts, leaving interpretations and next steps to human agents (vs. algorithms or AI). 

our three-way approach allows you to create clear storylines from bare data

Breaking the silo mentality 

Leaving out all data that is irrelevant to a specific department can create a ‘silo mentality’ in which everyone is solely focused on their own targets. The result is a lack of ownership that can greatly damage the company.

Cost to Serve

Using the Cost to Serve Approach can prevent organizational silos. Simply put,  cost to serve analyzes all the resources a company needs to bring its product or services to their customers.

This will gives a clear view across departments of how they influence each other and, eventually, the bottom line. This way, cost to serve can help determine concrete actions that will improve processes, lower costs and have a beneficial, end-to-end impact on the entire organisation.

The right real-time data to the right person

The right data needs to be provided to the right person in the organization. The end goal of controlling and reporting is to keep data as clear, concise and up-to-date as possible to allow responsible parties to determine the next steps required to improve their KPIs.
