Ascendum Central Europe GmbH

Three questions for Reinhard Schachl

What was your starting point?

Having switched to SAP, we needed to replace the outdated corporate performance management software and find an up-to-date solution that would be easy to adapt to SAP.

What were your highlights?

Corporate Planner stands out with its quick and easy data import and export and its clear reports. The handling is extremely straightforward: data streams and years can be changed or added in seconds. All in all, the software is very user-friendly. It’s easy to add rows and KPIs and to adjust and duplicate the reports.

What lessons have you learned?

It’s important to make the most of your time with the consultant. This applies to the preparation, including mapping and KPI selection, and to creating the underlying structure and reports and trying out relevant functionalities.
