Three questions for Antje Rottmann

What was your starting point?

We were looking for a software solution for our project management in which our corporate structure could be displayed according to departments. We also wanted to be able to make adjustments to the solution quickly and easily whenever necessary.

What were the highlights?

With Corporate Planner, we have simplified our economic planning and budgeting process and introduced quick target-actual comparisons.

What has been the greatest benefit?

Because there’s so little work involved, we can now check more frequently whether our projects are within budget. Our day-to-day work benefits from the speed with which we establish transparency across the departments.
