Comments: A3 Modeling is a reporting, budgeting and forecasting, Business Intelligence (BI) application easy for all users to understand. It is Excel based and the models use Excel functionality that users already know. Thus user acceptance training is minimal.

The flexibility that A3 Modeling provides to meet user and IT requirements is key to the business/IT decision making process. The users can provide requirements to IT in an Excel spreadsheet. IT in many cases can adapt Excel spreadsheet (without additional complex coding) to a controlled and secure platform for implementation. Since many users have advanced Excel skills adequate enough to perform model maintenance, the need for consulting is minimal.

A3 modeling leverages both OLAP and relational data sources for reporting. A3 Modeling provides web-based Business Intelligence (BI) platform with proper security for users to collect data for budgeting/forecasting and a controlled environment for loading data back to multidimensional (OLAP) and/or relational databases. Any financial model for complex allocations, eliminations, balance sheet walk forward reconciliations, driver based forecasting can be incorporated into an A3 solution that can be accessed by users from a central source. Since there is only one model to maintain on the enterprise server, the need for spreadsheet models maintained on user desktops and forwarded in emails throughout the organization is eliminated. Dashboards from internet access are also included with an A3 Modeling solution. Additional features that A3 Modeling offers are Workflow for approval processes and web portal for announcements/communication.

The team at A3 solutions is responsive and cooperative when technical support is required. With 15+ years of experience working with this team, it is always amazing how fast technical issues are identified and resolved.
