What our Clients say:

„As an international bank with more than 3.000 employees in seven countries, our requirements towards a CPM tool are extreme: we want to report, consolidate, forecast, analyse and simulate across several countries, reporting standards, languages and currencies using one technology. So we looked for one tool to cover these requirements and answer my ad-hoc questions in a user-friendly, flexible and fast way.’ team implemented Unit4 prevero CPM software in a very agile, effective and efficient way. Today we use the software as intended and benefit in more ways from the solution than I expected:’ team turned out to be the perfect partner for us – and the solution is a landmark in a Finance Transformation.“

Christian Kubitschek
Addiko Bank - Group CFO, Austria
“As a company with more than 7.500 employees, selling into 125 countries, we were looking for a highly flexible CPM system and an implementation partner who truly understands our business. We started with the project, as’ Consultants were still working for prevero and we were highly satisfied with every aspect of the collaboration. Now we are happy to have both perfect support from the software vendor as well as from Their Consultants know Unit4 prevero inside out, walk their talk and take the ‘extra-mile’. We are happy to leverage their know how as ‘sparring partners’ for all strategic and hands-on questions related to Budgeting, Forecasting and Reporting.”

Michael Magenreuter
Villeroy & Boch - Head of Group Controlling, Germany
“At Hillebrand we needed to adopt our Unit4 Prevero based CPM system quickly because we wanted to include in our reporting and forecasting system the COVID-19 impact estimates. That’s why we reached out to on Thursday. Their consultants started working on the requirements, and our system was up and running with the specified enhancements (we call it ‘COVID-19 impact overview’) in our productive environment next day afternoon. This is what I call agile and helpful.”

Anders Mortensen
Hillebrand Group AG, Group Finance Project Manager
“The main benefit is that now everything is in one system. Both the key figures and the corporate planning derived strategy goals, etc. You can get target-actual comparisons within the same system. The transfer from one system to another is no longer necessary. You no longer use a wide variety of systems for planning, key figure analysis, etc. I would recommend having a look at Unit4 Prevero and request them to work with Because we really felt being in good hands there and we are still convinced that the experts sitting there really helped us.”

Taner Yilmaz
GWG Wuppertal, Director Controlling
"We have been successfully working with’ Professional Services team for several years, with exceptional results regarding time to completion, agility and business results. As a Professional Services driven company, we use our Performance Management Solution for Budgeting, Reporting, What If Analysis and decision support – it helped us speed up our processes significantly and build a better foundation for our decisions. Even though my time available for the system is scarce because of my role as Group CFO, I personally create new content and administrate the system, since it is easy to use and we benefit from quick results."

Marcel Fäh
Helbling Group - Group CFO, CH
“We demand a lot from a CPM tool: it needs to allow for mid- and long-term bottom line simulation, including financial derivates impact analysis. We expect the system to connect data and experts from several departments and take our existing, spreadsheet based approach to the next level: this is what we call true integrated business planning.’ Professional Services team has built a fully functional prototype with our data in no time, including balance sheets for several periods. Because of their obvious expert know how in connected planning and Unit4 Prevero it was an easy decision for us. We expect to be able to work with the system in a few weeks.”

Wilhelm Bayer
S-IMMO AG, Head of Finance and Controlling
“Our Goal: We didn’t want to rely on spreadsheets anymore and needed to stop inefficient processes. We strived for a single, reliable data set – our ‘Single Point of Truth’. Now that we work with Unit4 Prevero technology, x-checking endless numbers of spreadsheets belongs to the past. The time we won throughout our project with we use for high-value tasks like ad-hoc analysis and improved decision support. Since our project with we save 50-60% on planning time.”

Pascal Speicher
Villeroy & Boch, Corporate Financial Controller
"If you have the courage to break up and re-arrange existing structures and processes, you can save a lot of time, effort and money with a centralized Project Performance Management tool. With the help of Consultants, Hamburg Airport saves several Mio. Euro every year: As the logical result of the rigid and system-immanent cost-control of the PPM tool – that resonates very well, considering software costs in the low six-digit range.”

Gerald Karolyi

“The improvements after our project with are that the numbers are much more reliable, we are faster, and we have more time to deal with the results. For me personally working with the new planning software is a lot of fun. I have learned that the system is very flexible and that you can start ad-hoc analyses or link numbers at a speed that is not possible in any other planning system. You can click on a number in the report and then a completely different diagram is shown. That’s impressive.”
