Corporate Performance
Management (CPM)

In corporate performance management projects, verovis acts as a sparring partner and source of inspiration in one. CPM helps a company’s C-level management plan and manage goals using robust processes and tools. In the first step, verovis analyzes the existing management elements – such as controlling, planning, forecasting and reporting – to give you an overview of the status quo of your processes and system landscape. These revelations then form a sound basis for developing various options for action, a target vision and a strategic CPM roadmap.

Controlling

Modern-day controlling concepts master the balancing act between simplicity and sufficient accuracy, and must take the management concept into account when the controlling function is set up or modified. Be it cost center structures, value flows or an underlying design for a corporate ERP system, verovis assists you in designing and implementing your project.

Simplifying and making controlling easier to grasp… that is our goal.

Functional control

When corporate functions go awry, it is not just the financials that provide the impetus for management. Function-specific KPIs – such as for sales, supply chain, production and administration – ensure process transparency and let courses of action be identified. To this end, verovis develops effective instruments, such as targeted reporting, to provide relevant information to key stakeholders.

Target Operating Model

Besides the instruments of performance management, verovis also cooperates closely with you to create a new target operating model for your CFO organization that unlocks potential and successfully supports your digital transformation.

Financial Consolidation

Implementing consolidation strategies in the area of digital finance is a complex endeavor. Besides using the right consolidation technology, it is also essential to understand the legacy systems, empower employees, and keep an eye on the implications for ERP and the overall organization.

Legal and management consolidation systems often form the backbone for supplying information to the entire group. Having grown over many years, however, these systems have often become unwieldy and inflexible. In times of short innovation and life cycles, this clashes sharply with today’s demands, where changes must be quickly recognized, accurately simulated and mapped with a high degree of reliability.

verovis helps you along the entire consolidation lifecycle: from the initial prototyping and selecting the right software solution to platform enablement and integration into your IT landscape.
