Alight LLC, developers of the industry-leading Alight Planning financial planning and reporting software, and Applied Analytix, a consulting firm specializing in performance management and business intelligence solutions, today announced a strategic partnership for delivering Alight software and professional services to small and mid-market companies and divisions of the Fortune 500.
“Applied Analytix is a very sharp group of consultants with extensive experience in performance management software ,” said Rand Heer, Alight’s CEO. “Their special focus on budgeting and planning, financial forecasting and advanced analytics makes them a valuable partner for us because these are the very strengths of the Alight Planning software package, especially for mid-market companies and divisions of the Fortune 500 who can’t afford or support higher-end packages.”
“The Alight solution leverages Rand’s deep experience and success with planning applications. Alight Planning provides companies with a solid platform that goes well beyond just the basic planning and budgeting capabilities,” said Dan Mannisto, CEO and founder of Applied Analytix. “Our decision to partner with Alight compliments Applied’s focus on mid-market firms that need advanced forecasting and modeling at an affordable price. We are very excited at the prospect of working with Rand and the Alight team.”
