From standard product costing and margin contribution to sophisticated cash flow projections, Centrend can help you build comprehensive data analysis models to solve business problems without investing in expensive software. You'll be amazed how little it costs for MS Excel-based software solutions that can serve your company effectively and maximize productivity for years to come.

Business Process Analysis

Computer systems and hard-working personnel are often rendered ineffective because of deficient or out-dated business processes. Business processes become sacred cows that employees believe can't be touched because "it's always been done that way." Centrend provides a cost-effective way to bring about change by exploring a company's business processes and understanding the involved departments' requirements. We get to the heart of the process and analyze how both people and office tools work together to accomplish the process objective. We ask the right questions and understand a broad range of information systems technology.
