Harvard Pilgrim Health Care has selected Clarity 6 software to enhance its corporate performance management initiative. Harvard Pilgrim is one of New England â€™s largest full-service health benefits organizations providing a variety of insurance plan options and self-funding arrangements to more than one million members.
Driving Harvard Pilgrimâ€™s decision to purchase and implement Clarity 6 was the company’s need for a single web-based suite of integrated solutions to manage, plan and forecast their budget effectively across the organization while leveraging their existing investment in both Oracle and Microsoft Analysis Services (MSAS) databases.
â€œWe are very pleased with the capability of Clarity Systemsâ€™ software,â€ said Charlie Nugent, Manager Cost Allocations and Management reporting at Harvard Pilgrim. â€œUsing Clarity 6 will increase our visibility across the organization and is critical to company performance. What we were interested in was upgrading our spreadsheet budgeting and forecasting processes, using an application that was a single consistent source for tracking and reporting budget performance across Harvard Pilgrim. We are excited about having a single, consistent source for full corporate performance management. Clarity 6 will help us proactively assess and analyze results to facilitate key decisions.â€
Looking to establish performance measures to support overall strategy, Harvard Pilgrim also selected Clarity Systems for its unified product, consulting expertise, and ability to execute in a timely and costly fashion. Clarity 6 will act as a central repository for Harvard Pilgrimâ€™s data, ensuring consistency and transparency throughout the organization on its overall performance and action plans.
â€œOur exceptional professional services team has helped Harvard Pilgrim use Clarity 6â€™s flexibility to transform the product to fit into their specific business model â€” and do all this at a reasonable cost,â€ said Frank Pizzolato , CEO, Clarity Systems. â€œOur focus has always been on improving financial processes and providing organizations with clear insight into their corporate performance. This latest partnership with Harvard Pilgrim offers them a highly scalable, feature-rich platform through which their organization can better their planning, budgeting, forecasting and reporting methodologies.â€
