The Inpensa Capex Management Platform offers the following capabilities:

  • Idea capture
  • Funding request
  • Development of multi-year capital plans
  • Tracking the execution for managing the spend
  • Shadowing the operations for realizing benefits
  • Monitoring the capital assets during their useful life for maintaining the depreciation schedule and more effectively managing their replacements.

Inpensa’s Capex Management Platform is designed to enable a best practice capital planning and prioritization process based on:

  • A collaborative approach to capturing ideas, business cases, and estimates from subject matter experts (SMEs) potentially across multiple business units (BUs) and geographical locations
  • A rationalized means of analyzing business cases by performing a detailed cost / benefit study, reviewing financial statements (e.g., cash flow and income statement) and financial returns (e.g., ROI and IRR), and establishing a scorecard for aligning investments to strategy and measuring ease of execution
  • A systematic step toward simplifying the funding and approval process through standardized templates, automated financials (e.g., cash flow and income statement), and policy-driven approval matrix that is dependent on such factors as investment type, spend threshold, location, and ownership
  • An iterative means of selecting, prioritizing, and funding capital investments through multiple passes before the beginning of the fiscal year and continually balancing the portfolio in-year to accommodate variances in actuals and forecast
  • A proactive way of tracking approved investments for performance both during the execution phase to optimizing spend during operation to achieve stated outcomes; along with monitoring capital assets procured at the time of execution during their useful life to more effectively manage replacements
