Since inception, PDQ Decisions has designed PDQdecide with rapid deployment and easy configuration as top priorities. Our product vision is to seamlessly merge reserves management and capital planning into a great best-of-breed product. But if PDQdecide is intended to be a best-of-breed product, why integrate two families of work flows?
You can’t plan without reserves data, and you can’t book undeveloped reserves without a development plan.
The answer is that reserves management and capital planning are completely dependent on each other. You can’t plan without reserves data, and you can’t book undeveloped reserves without a development plan. Changing the plan may require changing the reserves. Changing the reserves may require changing the plan. Our mission with PDQdecide is to allow our clients to unlock value and increase efficiencies by removing the barriers between reserves and planning.
Only with PDQdecide can you:
When designing a best-of-breed product, it’s necessary to draw a circle around what most naturally fits together
When designing a best-of-breed product, it’s necessary to draw a circle around what most naturally fits together, both from the perspective of business functions and from the perspective of data flows. Build compelling functionality inside that circle, plug easily into existing data flows, provide open and secure access to application data, and integrate into existing IT infrastructure with the lightest possible touch. For PDQdecide, the natural and obvious choice was to draw the circle around reserves and planning.
With PDQdecide, customers are free to choose reserves or planning or both.
In the spirit of a best-of-breed product, PDQdecide does not coerce users to adopt its platform. With PDQdecide, customers are free to choose reserves or planning or both. Enjoy the functionality you need when you need it– no new modules, no upgrades, no change orders, and no IT projects.

On the topic of product focus, we can’t overlook how important end users are to us. We’ve all experienced the frustrations of typical product support– first level support that knows very little about the product, product enhancement ideas that never see the light of day, product customizations that lead to fragmented versions of the product and degrade the customer service experience, and so on.
For PDQdecide, end user support is an inherent part of the product, not an afterthought.
PDQdecide is designed to minimize the need for support calls in the first place. And if you do need help, you’ll always have direct access to one of our experts.
