With Technology Partnerz Ltd., Vanguard Software’s users will access new Integrated Business Planning capabilities that leverage ERP implementation experience with accessible data analytics to accelerate value improvement of sales and operations.
Vanguard’s Chief Sales and Marketing officer, Neal Goffman, believes the deal will help more organizations benefit from Vanguard Software’s unique analytics and forecasting capabilities to achieve improvements in profitability and performance. “By leveraging Technology Partnerz’s experience and expertise in large scale ERP implementations and advanced analytics, Vanguard clients will benefit from rapid integrations and custom solutions that deliver,” said Goffman. “Customers will now enjoy enterprise-grade forecasting and planning by transitioning from error-prone spreadsheets to an easier and better performing S&OP business process.”
Vanguard Software’s cloud platform includes advanced applications for sales forecasting, demand planning, inventory optimization, budgeting and forecasting, Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP), and IBP with full financial integration.
Eric Torkia, Principal with Technology Partnerz, agrees that the partnership will provide a net benefit to both organizations’ clients in terms of tools and business expertise.
“This relationship brings a new, more networked dimension to planning and business analytics processes that historically have immense benefit but suffered from being hard to manage or just not being in the hands of the right people at the right time” Torkia said. “We think this will be great for our clients who want to take their operational analytics to the next level because Vanguard’s IBP Platform allows them to meld advanced analytics solutions such as simulation, optimization, and decision trees with workflows that get used! With Vanguard, we will deliver greater cost savings, faster time to insight, faster implementations, rapid organizational adoption, and business-aligned implementation and support.”
Under the deal, Vanguard Software will make available all facets of its cloud IBP platform. Technology Partnerz will handle consulting as well as post-implementation services, including maintenance, level 1 support, best-practices training, and ongoing system integration.
