Arcplan Partners with The Forerunner Group to Put Business Intelligence and Planning "Out Front"


Start-up company plans to expand on arcplan's leading CPM platform and provide cloud-based delivery options

Wayne, PA (I-Newswire) January 8, 2014 - International business intelligence (BI) and planning software provider arcplan is pleased to announce its partnership with The Forerunner Group, an analytics and planning firm located in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. 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."

"The Forerunner Group is a tremendous addition to the arcplan partner network," said John Kozlowski, Director of North American Alliances at arcplan. "With a business model based on solving analytical problems that cost companies time and money, Dwight and his team are going to bring tangible value to every project. We look forward to working with them to introduce arcplan to new markets."
