How to get into the BARC Score FPM DACH

The BARC Score FPM DACH examines the market for FPM products and portfolios in the DACH region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) and supports users in selecting a suitable FPM solution for their company. Based on a variety of different criteria from portfolio architecture to user feedback, providers are evaluated based on diverse data points from various BARC surveys and analyst reports.

In addition to a proven focus on financial performance management functionality, a provider must meet the criteria of financial planning, consolidation, operational planning and forecasting, reporting, and analysis before it can be included in the BARC Score FPM DACH. In addition, proof of a minimum annual turnover of 20 million euros and a significant number of implementations and license sales in the DACH region must be provided.

What is important for the BARC Score FPM DACH

Each provider is evaluated on the basis of two dimensions: "Portfolio Capabilities" (functional scope, portfolio architecture, integration, business user friendliness) and "Market Execution" (product strategy, financials, sales strategy, etc.). User satisfaction with BI and planning tools is also important and is incorporated in the evaluation from "The Planning Survey" and "The BI & Analytics Survey".

In the BARC study "The Planning Survey", LucaNet achieved excellent customer feedback regarding performance satisfaction, project duration, and predefined data connection. You can read all other relevant details on the structure and results in the current BARC Score FPM DACH.
