Three questions for Christian Lötscher

What was your starting point?

We were looking for a solution for flexible and efficient planning and reporting with variance analyses and corporate performance management. We wanted the data from our financials system, Sage 200 Extra, to be transferred as automatically as possible. With two languages used at our company, we wanted a solution that could support French and German as well as being able to depict two different financial years: the calendar year locally and 1st November to 31st October at group level.

What were your highlights?

Corporate Planner won us over with its high level of flexibility and professionalism. Over and above the software, we appreciate the dedicated team at Corporate Planning, the high quality and the rapid responses of the support, the excellent standard of the training courses and the ongoing development of the solution.

What lessons have you learned?

The software is just one part of the solution. To be successful in monitoring KPIs and in setting up and expanding a financial and business reporting system that meets the needs of all departments, it takes know-how, an interest in the topic, and suitable software with a training and support.
