Model your business and perform simulations like never before. ValQ is a business modeling tool that enables your organization to perform agile planning, simulations, forecasting and what-if scenario analysis. ValQ helps executives and decision-makers visualize and analyze various business scenarios for effective decision making.
ValQ is a business modeling system that enables users to create mathematical or conceptual models of their business, visualized in a way that links the business KPIs (what management or stakeholders care about) to the operational drivers (the things that can be influenced to change the KPIs). ValQ leverages the power of Microsoft Power BI and is installed and used as a custom visual in Power BI. However, it is much more than a traditional visual. ValQ can be a very powerful and complex tool. Users can build a simple model in a matter of minutes, or when the complexities of their business require it, they can build a very complex model – several of our customers have models with thousands of data points (nodes).
ValQ’s highly engaging and intuitive interface has been designed to cater exclusively to decision-makers and executives. This ensures that they do not have to rely on analysts and IT developers every time they need to make a modification or run one more simulation. Here are some key features of ValQ:
While the ValQ can be used as a standalone tool for planning, it does not have to necessarily replace your existing system – ValQ can be used to complement the existing bottom-up planning tools being used in your organization. Using valQ, you can quickly define key planning parameters using a top-down approach before embarking on a full-blown bottom-up validation of targets. This ensures that there is consensus on high-level targets (for metrics such as target volume, prices, sales mix and variable costs), before the organization proceeds to create budgets in greater detail.
Enterprises have found that this balanced approach of combining top-down and bottom-up planning helps them leverage the best of both worlds. Using valQ in the process has the following benefits:
