Kerry Barrett, President
In today’s global marketplace, where businesses are positioned for rapid growth, greater mobility, and possess an increasing demand for real-time business decision support, Accretive Solutions has established itself as a key provider of solutions to address today’s most pressing business challenges. From tactical, individual expertise, to larger-scale, deliverables-based consulting solutions, Accretive Solutions’ services are tailored to flexibly meet the needs of its clients.

Accretive Solutions founded in 1985, has been recognized nationally for its expertise in accounting and finance, enterprise performance management, enterprise governance, business transformation, and information technology. The Company has offices in 10 markets and has more than 800 employees who bring both consulting and private industry experience, combined with the intellectual capital within the firm, to assist companies in improving business performance. “I hear regularly from our clients that our consultants are sharp, focused, results-oriented, and easy to work with,” noted Kerry Barrett, President of Accretive Solutions. “Our objective at Accretive Solutions is to create a workplace that encourages innovation, ownership, education and achievement for our team members, as we believe this type of culture in turn enables us to create tremendous value for our clients.”

Services Integrated with Oracle

“The Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) practice leverages the various Oracle EPM technologies to provide and implement solutions to address the clients ‘financial and operational performance challenges,” says Scott Fournier, VP - Accounting, Finance & EPM Services.
That EPM model is defined by the set of management, reporting, and analytical processes; supported by Oracle’s technology; that enable Companies to define strategic goals and then measure and manage performance against those goals.

Impediments of the Industry

Companies and business leaders today are dealing with complex data. At the same time, customers expect rapid, timely, relevant information that influences their buying decisions. Therefore, Accretive Solutions – which focuses primarily on implementing Financial Close and Reporting, Data Analytics, and Planning & Forecasting - helps the firm’s clients get better access to pivotal, real decision support.

Significant uptick in M&A activity in the market place has been observed, both through private equity purchase and through a competitor acquisition. As a leader, Oracle’s EPM tool suite provides a technological foundation for acquiring companies to provide fast and accurate consolidated performance results. Integral to achieving objectives is the ability to leverage the various Oracle technologies, such as Oracle Essbase, Hyperion Financial Management, and Hyperion Planning.

Roadmap Ahead

The strategic objective is to expand and substantially grow Oracle EPM Service client base at all locations within the United States and to be client’s go-to consulting partner for Oracle EPM technology implementation, customization, and optimization projects. The company’s current plans focus primarily on specializing in the various Oracle EPM technologies, such as: HFM, Essbase, and Hyperion Planning.
“Our main objective is to provide our clients’ C-Level executives and theirmanagement teams the means to make better decisions – to do so more rapidly and with more certainty”, reveals Scott Fournier.
