Challenges Before Vena

Quartile faced significant challenges in financial management due to a reliance on disconnected Excel files. This led to inefficiencies in reporting and forecasting. The lack of structured data, arising from multiple disparate sources including QuickBooks and Salesforce, necessitated labor-intensive processes to maintain data accuracy and consistency. These manual tasks were not only time-consuming but also prone to errors, adversely affecting financial analysis and planning.

Delbridge’s Approach

In addressing Quartile’s unique challenges, we tailored our approach by developing and implementing two specialized data models: the Financial Planning Model and the Workforce Planning Model. These models were seamlessly integrated with Quartile’s existing QuickBooks and Salesforce systems. This strategic integration aimed to streamline Quartile’s operations, transforming their data management and forecasting capabilities into a cohesive, efficient system that leveraged their existing data sources more effectively.

”The Delbridge team were excellent partners and made significant efforts to learn our business model and processes.”

Jeff Schulte, Director of Finance

The implementation strategy was characterized by its focus on Quartile’s specific requirements, ensuring that the new system aligned perfectly with their operational goals. The integration of QuickBooks and Salesforce with Vena was pivotal, enabling a unified platform for accurate and rapid financial forecasting and reporting. Delbridge’s expertise with Vena facilitated a seamless transition, empowering Quartile with advanced tools for data-driven decision-making.

Partnership and Expert Guidance

The expertise and knowledge Delbridge brought to the table regarding the Vena platform were instrumental in ensuring a smooth and successful implementation, demonstrating a partnership approach that was both effective and closely aligned with Quartile’s objectives.


Following the implementation of Vena, Quartile experienced a remarkable transformation in reporting and forecasting accuracy and speed. The manual, error-prone processes were significantly reduced, enabling the FP&A team to devote more time to analyzing business performance. The use of Vena allowed for real-time updates and scenario planning during the annual planning process, empowering Quartile to make swift, data-driven decisions.

The shift from manual, disjointed processes to a streamlined, data-driven platform has not only resolved Quartile’s initial challenges but also positioned them for future success through continuous innovation and efficiency improvement.
