The 2014 EPMmys’ award recipients include:
Performance Award: Sterling Bank
Sterling Bank’s finance team embodies the spirit of this award, which goes out to the organization with the most holistic unified performance management solution to optimize both operational and financial outcomes. Realizing the economies of scale of deploying a common platform across performance management domains, Sterling Bank was able to integrate a variety of financial and operational data into a comprehensive solution that spans planning, reporting, profitability measurement, funds transfer pricing and incentive compensation. The result is trusted data governance along with the planning and profitability analytics required to understand the key business drivers and inform better decision making across the organization.
Innovation Award: Stanford University
Awarded to a finance team that has pushed the envelope of their Axiom implementation to deploy a creative solution that is making an impact in their organization, our first Innovation Award goes to Stanford University’s School of Humanities and Sciences. Both the Stanford and Axiom teams brought innovative thinking to creating a unique and complex student financial aid planning application, one which represents the most advanced forms-based solution that has been delivered to the marketplace to date. The result is a highly ergonomic and advanced student aid planning system that models across different entity and operational levels over many years.
Master System User of the Year: Dignity Health
This award celebrates Jeffrey Knezovich of Dignity Health, whose skills, contributions and initiative are representative of a truly exceptional Master Systems User. Dignity Health’s finance team embarked on a journey to conduct their budgeting and forecasting by service line to accurately represent multiple scenarios of the future and help the organization properly prepare for the future changes within the rapidly evolving Healthcare marketplace. Jeffrey’s understanding of the underlying techniques Axiom uses, his knowledge of its features and his extensive understanding of Dignity’s day-to-day business have allowed him to build out an exceptionally flexible planning and service line budgeting model.
