King of Prussia, PA – January 8, 2014 – The Forerunner Group, an analytics and planning firm located in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, is pleased to announce its partnership with international business intelligence software provider arcplan. The Forerunner Group develops and markets analytical solutions that leverage powerful BI platforms like arcplan. The company will also manage arcplan solutions in the cloud, ensuring that arcplan reports, dashboards and corporate performance management (CPM) applications are delivered securely and cost-effectively for companies of all sizes.
Founded by former arcplan Senior Vice President Dwight deVera, The Forerunner Group is focused on delivering BI solutions that solve industry- and department-specific problems from a holistic perspective. It strives to offer solutions that anticipate the needs of finance professionals and other functional business leaders. Part of the company’s strategy involves innovation on a platform its founder is very familiar with – arcplan.
The Forerunner Group plans to develop pre-built templates on arcplan Edge, arcplan’s leading CPM software. It has also begun creating a ready-to-deploy data model for companies that are currently using spreadsheets for planning but want to automate their process; in other words, companies with no database infrastructure in place. This will speed up arcplan Edge project delivery and reduce the costs associated with engineering a planning database from scratch.
“In a decade at arcplan, I’ve worked with some of the largest and most prestigious companies on earth,” explained Dwight deVera, The Forerunner Group’s Managing Director. “Intimate knowledge of their analytic projects has enabled me to think like they do. My goal is now to bring ‘what’s next’ solutions to market by partnering with best-of-breed vendors and delivering applications that solve real business problems – especially ones that business leaders think can’t be solved yet.”
