FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (PRWEB) September 25, 2020
Wiss, a full-service accounting and strategic growth advisory firm, today announces the launch of its Business Analytics & Intelligence Practice, a new consulting group for mid-market companies who want to better utilize their data to make more informed financial decisions. The practice is led by Brian Fitz-Gerald who, prior to joining Wiss, founded an analytics consulting firm and who also worked at Mondelez International, the parent company of Nabisco and Cadbury, and Ernst & Young.
Middle market companies invest the most in business analytics compared to other technology-enabled capabilities, but they don’t achieve its full benefits due to inefficiencies in preparing data for analysis. By partnering with Wiss, companies can better organize and consolidate their data; develop and mentor talent to allow for more meaningful analysis; and ensure the effectiveness and profitability of their analytics and intelligence efforts.
“To maximize BI, today’s CFOs are expected to be both financial and technology experts,” said Paul Ursich, Partner, Wiss. “Our Business Analytics and Intelligence Practice takes on the technology’s heavy lifting so that they can turn their focus to making decisions from their data.”
The practice will focus on three areas:
Financial close process automation and reporting: to help middle market companies reduce time and costs spent preparing financial information for reporting and analysis.
Client training and upskilling: to help middle market businesses develop finance talent who can meet demands of working with data, with a training focus on key skills, practical use cases, and widely used tools.
Performance management: to help companies ensure profitability through effective budgeting and forecasting analytics, scaling across specific client groups, and building topic-specific dashboards to enable leadership in an industry or niche.
