Harness the power of IT to improve your marketing

Golden Orb is a UK-based management consultancy specialising in using computer technology to solve complex business problems. Our award-winning planning software Compas helps businesses to apply the same level of discipline to planning functions such as marketing as has long been applied to other parts of the organisation, such as finance. By combining the planning and evaluation of all business activities in the same system, our software streamlines the budgeting process, allows plans to be updated dynamically as actual data comes in, and generates a rich database to help optimise future spend. Many companies know that they are too dependent on spreadsheets for planning or reporting. Compas offers a more secure, powerful and streamlined alternative, and our consultants can help make the transition as painless as possible.

Our starting point is always to identify your real business issues and then ensure the best use of IT to deliver an effective solution. This could involve making better use of your existing systems or developing a bespoke solution. Whether your budget is £2,000 or £200,000 we aim to help you improve the use of your data and maximise the return on your investment.
