Host Analytics, the leading provider of scalable, cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM) solutions, today announced the launch of Solutions Exchange, a forum for Host Analytics customers, partners, and subject matter experts to share planning solutions that address common problems across business functions and industries.
With Host Solutions Exchange, organizations have access to dozens of enterprise solutions for use cases from various industry verticals and functional business areas. The solutions embody best practices that can be used to help organizations get a head start on quickly solving a given application problem or simply as educational tools to see how others have approached solving a similar business challenge.
Business professionals are always looking to network with their peers to learn new ideas and best practices they can apply to be more proficient in their area of functional responsibility, and to deliver greater value within the organization; now they can do this without ever leaving their desk. Planning solutions available on the Host Solutions Exchange include:
- Industry-specific solutions such as the Host Analytics Integrated SaaS Business Solution that is tailored to the foundational metrics, drivers, and math of the business that SaaS software companies use to measure success. Customers can use this model to plan, forecast, and track sales productivity, new and existing bookings, MRR and ARR balances, churn, detailed commission expense, MQLs and conversion rates.
- Functional solutions such as the Host Analytics Sales Forecasting Solution, which allows for detailed planning for a variety of inputs at the individual sales rep level, rep type, and region level, providing flexibility to push granular changes to drivers such as annual quota or attainment through to an aggregated bookings number.
- Hybrid solutions such as the Keen Vision Business on a Page solution for consumer products, which combines and aggregates financial and operational data so that users have access to all the critical information needed to run their business in one convenient place. Examples of operational data include asset management metrics, headcount, safety measure, delivery metrics, customer satisfaction ratings, and KPIs.
“As the benefits of integrated planning become more pronounced, line of business managers need to learn how to optimize their strategy and execution, and it can be difficult to know where to start,” said Dave Kellogg, chief executive officer at Host Analytics. “Solutions Exchange addresses this industry-wide challenge, providing a library of best practices from a broad community of experts.”
For the Host Analytics partner network, the Solutions Exchange enables partners to showcase their expertise by highlighting solutions to specific issues. By providing solutions to common issues, partners can reinforce their brand in the marketplace and reach customers grappling with the same business challenges.
Finance teams must be extremely agile to address changes in the tax and regulatory landscape. RSM US LLP, the leading provider of audit, tax, and consulting services focused on the mid-market, has contributed its robust financial reporting and consolidation solution to assist companies in complying with the latest FASB revenue recognition mandates.
“Solutions Exchange makes it incredibly easy for organizations to quickly and effectively address new business requirements by leveraging best-practice and purpose-built solutions to advance their enterprise planning strategy and execution; and for partners and subject matter experts to showcase their capabilities,” said Peter Emerling, director, technology and management consulting at RSM.
