The firm covers this spectrum through its Integrated Technology Program (ITP), a technology ecosystem that utilizes partner programs to leverage leading system and application providers for day-to-day financial work-flow efficiencies. The PlanGuru partnership offers 9Gauge clients another platform to ease the budgeting and planning process.

About 9Gauge Partners
9Gauge Partners delivers best practices finance and advisory services to provide executives with the business insights they need to make better decisions faster. Consultants are deployed on engagements in teams, rather than as isolated resources. Clients receive the best expertise for each phase of the work needed, driven by a culture of collaboration and accountability among the team members. Unlike traditional consulting services firms that provide a “resource” to execute tasks based on the clients’ guidance, 9Gauge deploys teams of consultants at blended rates that often are less costly than a single resource. This often results in completing the work more efficiently and more quickly, as a result of putting the right skills on each task. 9Gauge goes beyond the approach of “just getting the work done” as prescribed by the client, and delivers recommendations to optimize finance and accounting processes and implement efficiencies where possible. Our continued commitment to excellence in our delivery to clients drives long-term relationships, and continuing to maintain a great work culture enhances our ability to attract and retain great talent.
