Finance in a Box

Finance in a Box is a MicroStrategy-based framework that includes hundreds of powerful financial metrics, alerts, dashboards, and reports to provide quick and easy insight into actual, budget, and variance details among others with prebuilt variance analysis, trial balance, profit/loss, and balance sheet reports.

iProjects  Finance’s powerful prebuilt BI solutions deliver intuitive, role-based intelligence for everyone in an organization. Our end-product is a customized solution that enables better decisions and business processes based on best practices, allowing organizations to gain insight and reap the value from a range of data sources and applications including Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, Siebel, JD Edwards, and third party systems.

What is the value?
  • Reduction in total cost of ownership. Typical organizations consider several build- or- buy decision criteria for implementing new BI solutions: return on investment, total cost of ownership, time to market/deployment, resource capability and skill sets, and more. Studies have shown that building a BI and data warehouse application from scratch can take a year or more to complete, cost millions of dollars, and yet still oftentimes fail to meet business needs or expectations. By using our framework, organizations can benefit from faster deployment, lower TCO, and more pervasive insight with any alternative BI approach.
  • Predictable and compressed implementation time. By leveraging our framework we are able to implement more quickly, with less risk, and at a fraction of the cost required to build traditional business intelligence (BI) solutions.
  • Deliver value to the business in 12 weeks or less. Finance professionals and managers across the organization can monitor performance, analyze specific metrics, and compare them to budgets or performance benchmarks. They can quickly spot deviations and take actions to correct them before they become problems. iProjects Finance Apps enables financial analysts to perform intra-period balance sheet and income statement variance analyses to determine on a near-real time basis how the business is performing.
