Our founder, Chuck Keffer, joined Troux in September 2004 and led some of the largest Troux deployments in North America and Europe. He authored the Troux Accelerator methodology and established the Troux advisory services practice to deliver Troux Accelerator solutions. He brought home his experience with Troux’s customers to contribute to the requirements and design of the Troux product. Ten years later, recognizing that Troux’s customers had no full-service, independent provider of consulting services, he left Troux and formed Strategic EPM—a network of affiliated independent consulting professionals focused on the full range of needs of owners of the Troux EPM Suite software. Collectively, Strategic EPM has a greater number of consultants with more experience than any independent provider in the market.
Assessment and Advisory Services
Given the significant investment required to procure, deploy and maintain the Troux software, customers strive to realize return on that investment quickly. With advisory consultants in North America, Europe, and Australia/New Zealand, Strategic EPM provides both remote and on-site consulting to assess and recommend specific action for clients to take to reach their target objectives.

Alternative User Experience
With the emergence of HTML5 user interface frameworks, mobile interface development, latest generation business intelligence technologies, and the litany of content management systems, organizations desire alternative user experiences to those provided natively by the Troux EPM Suite software. Our team has deep experience developing and integrating these technologies to the TrouxSource server to provide users the performance and simple, multi-device experience they seek—often through integrations to existing organizational technology standards.
HTML5, Multi-Device Portal
Our team has the experience in migrating the intelligence in TrouxSource to existing portal applications such as Microsoft SharePoint, Drupal, WordPress, or another CMS platforms.
Business Intelligence Server Integrations
In addition to the established names of BusinessObjects, Cognos, and Crystal Reports, a new generation of business intelligence technologies has emerged such as QlikView, Tableau, and YellowFin. We offer the ability to deliver these technologies connected to the TrouxSource repository.
The information in Troux reflects an ecosystem of source-of-record systems. We provide integration solutions to continually update this information by Troux collectors, the Troux REST API, and/or enterprise service bus integrations.
