What we do

We Do That!     


Talking to a long standing Innovar customer recently, they uttered the dreaded phrase "I didn't know you did that! I wish I'd known that before I ......" This all goes to prove that we could communicate better. So before anyone else tells me the same thing, I thought it would be wise to tell you all of the other stuff we do. Just in case it is useful.

2012 to 2013

Hopes for 2013     


It's safe to say that 2012 has been a busy year all round and as the year draws to a close it is only natural to pause and reflect on all that has happened. Only recently has it really hit home just how much more quickly the time passes as we get older. As I hear my daughter sigh and enquire for, probably only the 15th time today, how many more "sleeps" it is until Christmas, I remember how much longer time seemed to fan out when I was growing up.

Spend Visibility
Using the Cloud for Spending Visibility and Control

Do you have complete visibility of spending in your company? Are you making the right decisions based on accurate information on company spending? Are you sure you are buying the right stuff at the right price? Do you really know what the company is spending? Are you managing demand effectively? Without complete visibility of spending these questions cannot accurately be answered and it is difficult to make financial decisions. If some of the questions above, sound alarm bells in your head then something needs to be done to improve your visibility of company spending.
