Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 30, 2009
Spider Strategies®, a global provider of Corporate Performance Management (CPM) solutions, announces a strategic partnership with the Balanced Scorecard Institute™ and the release of the QuickScore Performance Information System™, a Web-enabled balanced scorecard automation tool developed by Spider Strategies.
The alliance firmly establishes QuickScore as the only balanced scorecard product specifically designed to automate the Balanced Scorecard Institute's Nine Steps to Success™ scorecard framework.
QuickScore allows organizations to promptly view results from their balanced scorecard investment. Powered by the latest Web technologies, QuickScore gives organizations real-time access to the data they need, and transforms static performance measurement data into business intelligence.
"The Institute is excited to be able to harness Spider Strategies' technological strengths and offer our clients a balanced scorecard automation solution that is not only tailored to our Nine Steps to Success framework, but is also easy to use and very cost effective," said Howard Rohm, President of the Balanced Scorecard Institute.
The Institute's award-winning framework, Nine Steps to Success, is a practical approach to developing a strategic planning and management system based on the balanced scorecard. QuickScore automates the methodology by providing optimized performance information to selected audiences at critical communication intervals.
QuickScore features performance-measure dashboards, strategy maps, action plans, document management, custom generated reports, and sophisticated presentation capabilities in an easy-to-use Web-based platform. QuickScore users can easily form a visible connection between the projects and programs that they are working on, the measurements being used to track success, and the strategic objectives the organization is trying to accomplish - all within the mission, vision and strategy of the organization.
"We are pleased to partner with the Balanced Scorecard Institute and to create the only software solution developed specifically to support their Nine Steps to Success framework," says Conor D. Crimmins, Spider Strategies' President and COO.
