“The key lies not in having better information, but in turning information into information that cannot be ignored.”
Jim Collins, Good to Great
First Water Managed FP&A Solutions (MFS) activates eye-opening improvements in reporting, business intelligence (BI), forecasting, planning, and budgeting. MFS is offered on a done-for-you basis, but stands apart from other solutions in giving you recurring access to a team of finance experts.
Historically, financial planning and analysis (FP&A) required a “stack” of internal finance employees who could develop, implement, and efficiently maintain tools and processes. For small and midsize businesses (SMBs), the cost of this team was out of reach.
MFS is a game-changer. In addition to being the only solution that can offer this suite of capabilities and access to finance acumen, MFS can be implemented and maintained for a fraction of the cost of a traditional finance team.
First Water offers a modular approach to MFS, allowing businesses to select between different capabilities drawing from the RootSource (Reporting/BI) and TaleWind (Forecasting/Planning) components of our finance toolbox.
