  • Swisspower Renewables AG selected CCH Tagetik as future solution and needed a trusted partner that was able to bring best in class practices for both, its functional consolidation & budgeting requirements and the new software CCH Tagetik

 

The Solution

  • Design and implementation of CCH Tagetik for consolidation, budgeting and mid-term planning
  • Data integration with Microsoft Dynamics NAV via CCH Tagetik ETL
  • Workflow driven and tailored budget, mid-term planning and business planning processes with uniform structures including detailed sub-plans for OPEX and CAPEX next to main financial statements including cash flow
  • The design was leveraging Satriun’s starter kit for CCH Tagetik, providing business content & templates for data model, forms & reports as well as processes, based on best demonstrated practices focusing on CCH Tagetik standard functionality

Satriun as our implementation partner and CCH Tagetik as our new CPM system provided the optimal fit. Satriun delivers a unique blend of excellent knowledge of both group accounting & controlling as well as CCH Tagetik. Their committed and customer focused approach was a critical success factor to achieve our project objectives on time and in budget.

Solevo Group

Solevo, a leading distributor of chemicals and inputs for specific industrial and agricultural segments in Africa achieves high efficiency in group consolidation and reporting thanks to its CCH Tagetik solution implemented by Satriun.
Key Facts

  • Following its spin off from Louis Dreyfus Group, Solevo needed to select and implement its own group consolidation and management reporting solution
  • Solevo needed a partner that understood both its former group consolidation solution SAP Financial Consolidation and the selected solution CCH Tagetik
  • The project needed speedy execution and consultants that could provide hosting for SAP Financial Consolidation, leverage the existing configurations and configure CCH Tagetik in record time based on a ready-to-use Starter Kit

 

The Solution

  • While still using the legacy SAP Financial Consolidation solution on a Satriun-hosted cloud, Solevo and Satriun designed the CCH Tagetik solution
  • The design was based on Satriun’s Easy Start starter kit for CCH Tagetik, providing the project team with pre-configured content according to good practices
  • The CCH Tagetik Consolidation application has been purposely designed for Solevo, only leveraging some historical configurations from former shareholder
Key Benefits

  • Now Solevo is using modern technology, allowing for agile closings and reporting
  • The CCH Tagetik application is tailored to the exact needs of Solevo – in terms of chart of accounts, analytical dimensionsand calculations
  • The swift transformation of the Corporate Performance Management platform contributed to an efficient carve-out process for the group

 

Satriun provided exactly the service we needed: expertise on our former SAP solution, a pre-configured starter kit for CCH Tagetik and the expertise to tailor it to our exact specifications. The result of the rapid implementation is a new solution for our group Consolidation, Statutory and Management Reporting that perfectly fits our needs.

Fugro, the world’s leading Geo-data specialist, implemented CCH Tagetik on HANA to replace its existing Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) solution for consolidation and group reporting.

Key challenges

  • IFRS-based financial consolidation and reporting for actual, budget and forecast data
  • Source data acquisition from over 300 legal entities using 5 master ETL routines
  • Interpretation and migration of HFM rules file to CCH Tagetik functionality
  • Excel-based consolidated cash flow statement migrated to CCH Tagetik
  • Complex DSO formula using the absorption method of calculation
  • HFM’s entity dimension not only featuring legal entities but also managerial units
  • Extensive management reporting decks in Excel and PowerPoint

 

Project highlights

  • Integrated data model for IFRS- and management reporting purposes
  • Income statement by region / division / business line / service line
  • Matrix consolidation with intercompany eliminations by entity and by region
  • Entity dimension featuring only legal entities for easier intercompany reporting
  • Monthly consolidation incl. automatic equity pick-up & equity consolidation incl. CTA
  • Classroom trainings delivered globally for a 200+ user base

 

Key benefits

  • Phased submission using the CCH Tagetik process management cockpit
  • Cost allocations using the CCH Tagetik allocation engine to enable P&L by region
  • Fully automated equity pick-up and equity consolidation

With our HFM licenses expiring, we were looking for a solution to not just replace existing functionality, but to also enhance and automate our consolidation and reporting processes. It wasn’t always an easy ride, but in the end I am very positive and satisfied with Satriun and with CCH Tagetik on HANA, and believe it was the right choice of software and partner.
