SALT LAKE CITY, May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- KPI Fire today announced the first public release of its unique Strategy Execution Software that helps companies increase the success rate of their strategic initiatives. KPI Fire's enterprise solution is the first to combine intuitive project management capabilities with visual goal setting and metric dashboards. This unified approach eliminates confusion and increases employee engagement by visually linking teams and their projects to the company's metrics and goals.
"An estimated 44% of strategy efforts fail. It's one of the biggest problems in business," explained founder and CEO Cedro Toro. "Executives are looking for ways to make their strategic plan operational. If their team's projects are not aligned with the company's key objectives, the odds of them failing increases dramatically. KPI Fire gives leaders a single solution to align their organization and see immediate results."
KPI Fire solves the gap between strategy and execution by visually aligning goals and projects both vertically and horizontally across an organization. KPI Fire was designed to be simple and intuitive so everyone from the CEO to the production floor operator has real-time visibility to their metrics. Employees enter improvement ideas in KPI Fire's Idea Funnel then turn those ideas into projects or Kaizen events. To make this easier, common Lean Six Sigma workflows such as DMAIC and PDCA are built into KPI Fire. Custom dashboards show the impact each project will have on KPIs (key performance indicators). Middle managers create goals for their department and demonstrate progress to upper management. Companies that use this comprehensive approach to strategy management increase the value of their completed initiatives by 30%.
"When the VP of Strategy or Lean Six Sigma start using KPI Fire they get really excited. They say it is the easiest and most visual way to see how each person in their organization is contributing to their success," Cedro said. One customer called KPI Fire, "The Holy Grail of Continuous Improvement."
KPI Fire was founded in 2014 and is backed by Utah venture capital firm Peak Ventures. Since then KPI Fire has grown at a rapid pace with customers such as Consumer Reports, Yahoo! and Washburn University. To find out more about KPI Fire visit http://kpifire.com
