“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. smartPM.solutions’ 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.”
