Planning, budgeting, forecasting, and consolidating financials across a fast-growing business with numerous offices, multiple business units and diverse, geographically spread operations are, to say the least, challenging tasks. They are also core activities every business must execute in some way, shape or form, and given today’s dynamic business climate and turbulent global economy, the speed, efficiency and accuracy with which a business executes these activities has become increasingly vital to competitiveness, growth and viability.
More than ever before, businesses need a proven, easy-to-use tool for streamlining financial reporting and forecasting processes — one that delivers rapid ROI and measurable business value, and SAP BPC, the centerpiece of SAP’s EPM portfolio, is the best tool for the job.
Available in versions for both the Microsoft and SAP NetWeaver platforms, SAP BPC combines planning, budgeting, and forecasting capabilities with management and legal consolidation functionality in a single application, providing business users with the intuitive, role-based tools, structured processes and centralized data they need to integrate corporate and departmental planning, shorten budget cycle time, close the books faster and ensure compliance with regulatory and financial standards.
SAP is recognized as a leader in the EPM market by industry analyst organizations such as Gartner, IDC, Forrester and Ventana Research, among others, and as SAP and its partners bring more core EPM solutions such as SAP BPC to the cloud, the company’s status as an EPM market leader is sure to grow even stronger.
