From budgeting, reporting, consolidation, personnel management, customer relationship, payroll management to accounting – there is a tool for everything. However, problems arise when these tools operate as data silos and are incapable of integration. This means teams must spend countless hours manually collecting data from different sources. Even then, you can never be sure that the gathered data is current, accurate and relevant.

With Forest Grove’s Connected Services, you can automate data collection by integrating disparate sources into a single, centralised solution for enhanced analytical capabilities, enabling informed, more confident decision making across the organisation. No need for different departments to manage the ETL process! Connected Services is fully hosted and managed by Forest Grove without any dependency on your IT department.
