For over a decade, Qerent has provided a powerful enterprise financial and operational modelling capability to support the planning function in the mining, manufacturing, telecoms, retail, media and financial services industries across the globe.
Its unique object oriented architecture allows for a highly graphic and intuitive approach to modelling any business system; this in turn enables complex models to be built quickly, understood clearly and for scenarios to easily be quantified and evaluated.
Where most decision support technologies merely integrate data, Qerent goes further to relate data. This enables companies to move from traditional descriptive analytics to true diagnostic, predictive and even prescriptive analytics. Simply stated this means that our clients are able to understand not only what is happening across their businesses, but also why it is happening, as well as what is likely to happen, and importantly to also understand what best to do.View The Qerent Website
