Without a solid database, it becomes difficult to plan, develop successful strategies and make future-oriented decisions.

One of the key benefits is that it provides the ability to assign workflows precisely which means internal responsibilities become clearer.

"Enterprise customers profit from Serviceware Financial in multiple ways. The ignition spark on your way from data to dashboard is the underlying calculation model. We call it ‘Digital Value Model’, because it provides enough flexibility to incorporate enterprise-specific tags and attributes when allocating costs, while managing budget and demand are standardized on the processes layer, all with a focus on uncovering those value creating opportunities. With flexibility and standards in balance, customers’ sometimes herculean efforts for implementation are reduced significantly. They can draw from best practices and get a head start on their way to the multiple benefits of TBM as defined by the TBM council. The Digital Value Model is your autobahn to TBM,” comments Dirk K. Martin, CEO of Serviceware.
