Health Check Special Offer
How often do you visit the dentist or doctor, to check those gripes on your health? Wouldn't it be good if you could have similar checks to determine the health of your planning and reporting process? Can you think of some areas where your process is ailing? Its accuracy and efficiency is essential for your business to attain its maximum profitability. What is the cost of your system failing? Financial costs? Operations costs? Or what about the cost of your reputation?
At Innovar we offer a Health Check service, which will enable us, using our planning expertise, to assess your business processes. We will come to your business and provide 2 days of intense investigation of your planning and reporting process. We then compile a comprehensive report and made recommendations for any improvements required. To find out more go to Innovar Health Check

| |When your worst spreadsheet nightmare becomes a reality!!
"Spreadsheets appear to be a relatively intuitive tool that are perceived to be deceptively easy to use and although extensively used by organisations have often proved to be misleading at best and dangerous at worst. The spreadsheet itself has some limitations in its ability to act as a vehicle for the development of complex business models and users may be relatively naïve in the development of models. Their basis for developing the model may bebased on a unique worldview, or contain deliberate or unintended biases. The model may have been deliberately tampered with to generate acceptable figures for a specific instance to preserve a perceived 'expert' label for the developer".
