Success Stories: For-Profit Organizations Using ClearPoint

ClearPoint Strategy has been a game-changer for many organizations, helping customers streamline strategy management and achieve their goals more effectively. Below are two success stories highlighting how our strategy management software has significantly impacted their success.

Velosio: Fast Track to Strategy Execution

Velosio, a fast-growing enterprise software VAR, faced challenges with managing their strategic planning and execution due to the limitations of spreadsheets. As the company expanded, the complexity of tracking performance using Excel became impossible. In 2014, Velosio adopted ClearPoint Strategy to construct its strategic plan, manage initiatives, and integrate seamlessly with its existing accounting system.

Within days, Velosio transitioned from Excel to ClearPoint, leading to their most successful strategic planning retreat ever. The integration with Dynamics ERP allowed for real-time updates, saving time previously spent on data collection. ClearPoint’s flexibility enabled Velosio to link initiatives to individual activities, providing clearer insights and better prioritization of their initiatives.

ClearPoint transformed Velosio’s approach to strategy management, fostering collaboration across business units and ensuring that strategic initiatives were effectively executed. The result was a more efficient and impactful strategy execution process, contributing to Velosio’s continued growth and success. Check out our full Velosio case study for more detail.

Pacific Gas & Electric: Transforming Reporting

Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), a major utility company, needed a more efficient system for their extensive performance reporting requirements. Their manual, spreadsheet-based process was time-consuming and error-prone. In 2013, PG&E chose ClearPoint Strategy for its flexibility and robust reporting capabilities.

By moving to a centralized, web-based system, PG&E enhanced its strategic management process, driving better organizational performance and decision-making.
