The Accordion Approach

Accordion works with clients from strategy to implementation – configuring and customizing the CPM/EPM system to meet the business requirements. This includes:

CPM/EPM Strategy & Project Guidance

We engage early to best align finance and business processes with technology requirements.

Software Selection & Assessment

We take a “tech-agnostic” approach to assisting clients with software selection and road mapping.

Process Improvement

Our consultants bring more than tech expertise; we’re able to advise on best practices in finance, accounting, and operations.

Data & Systems Integration

By connecting the data behind the scenes, we make manual data collection/consolidation more automated and seamless.

Managed Services & Support

We have a dedicated onshore managed services team that helps augment client teams in both technical and functional areas.

Performance Tuning

If a new system is not required, our consultants are able to optimize existing technology to improve efficiency and scalability.
