The top partnership between smartPM.solutions and Unit4, which has existed for years, is going to be significantly intensified. The focus is on the FP&A area, which is still known to many under the name prevero. But not only integrated planning and analysis are smartPM.solutions’ focus topics, but also special industry solutions like for energy suppliers, manufacturing companies or the real estate industry.
Jochen Wiessler, Regional President DACH and Eastern Europe at Unit4: “We are pleased that smartPM is going to support selected customers from now on in terms of sales and Professional Services. Our customers will certainly benefit greatly from their many years of FP&A experience and comprehensive business know-how. We have been working very well together for years.”
Tillmann Gabriel, Partner Manager at Unit4 adds: “smartPM.solutions is Unit4’s only FP&A Elite Partner – with the most certified FP&A (prevero) consultants worldwide. The project rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars (n=23) speaks for itself.”
Flexible top-technology combined with excellent consulting from Controllers to Controllers
A part of the smartPM team, Alexander Hein, Markus Edlinger, Christian Konrad, Edgar Avagyan, Emil Tsvetkov and Boris Pejic had already worked together successfully at prevero: In more than 20 years in and with controlling departments, around 600 successfully completed projects could be delivered.
Especially in the energy supplier market, this team has built up tremendous knowledge and can provide excellent support with its expert know-how. “The customers currently being looked after jointly by Unit4 and smartPM are extremely satisfied with the hands-on mentality and reliability of the consulting team,” says Bettina Dircks, Account Executive Dach at Unit4.
Alexander Hein, formerly Head of Consulting and Managing Director of prevero and SVP Strategy & Operations at Unit4, is now CEO of smartPM.solutions and leads a team of more than 30 people. “No one else on the market has as many Controllers as Consultants – and we are constantly growing. The advantage is that our team understands the customer’s requirements, can implement them directly in the software and knows where the controlling problems are. The experience from other projects also helps to make the processes more efficient and set up the system optimally. We often see room for improvement where the controller doesn’t even suspect it,” says Alexander Hein, CEO of smartPM.solutions. The secret recipe of smartPM is also “absolute customer centricity and the extra mile”.
“Unit4 FP&A is one of the most flexible and user-friendly controlling tools on the market."
“The fast response time of the smartPM consulting team is particularly impressive – there is hardly anyone in the industry who can match it.” says Mike Springer, former Senior Sales Manager of the prevero team and today co-founder of zealaxx AG, which supports startup companies to grow faster.
“Unit4 FP&A is one of the most flexible and user-friendly controlling tools on the market. Exactly the right instrument for agile, decision-supporting controlling in volatile markets. We look forward to the expert discussions with the long-standing Unit4 FP&A prevero customers and would like to thank our partner Unit4 for the trust they have placed in us.” says Alexander Hein about the even stronger partnership with Unit4.
