Solutions for the financial controller
The role of the financial controller is in undergoing a transformation, transitioning to become something like ‘internal business consultants’. Controllers today are expected to suggest and assist in the implementation of important strategic processes while also providing analytical and evaluative support to other departments.
LucaNet’s CPM tool enables you to anchor the financial controller’s important advisory role for business managers. This software can create useful resources to supplement your decision-making processes in just a couple of mouse clicks. Easily analyse existing business models and current and future trends and use these to prepare, develop and evaluate different strategies to support your management team.

Reliable and consistent data
Reliable data is the cornerstone of reliable business planning and corporate performance management. Heterogeneous data files and unreliable data sources impair data quality, but LucaNet’s corporate performance management solution can restore a financial controller’s confidence in their data.
LucaNet automatically collects, validates and prepares data for processing. The result is a single, up-to-date version of the most important financial information – including balance sheet data, the cashflow, and the profit and loss statement.
A Business Application Research Center (BARC) survey of customers using a CPM solution confirmed that LucaNet is the undisputed leader when it comes to automated data transfer and preparation.

Improve your workflows
As a financial controller, wide-ranging financial plans and analyses, complex budgets, financial statements and management reports are all part of your standard workload. What we’ve found is that far too often these accounting processes are held up by numerous manual editing steps.
Raw data is usually inconsistent and first needs to go through preparation and validation. Often you are reliant on support from your IT department with processing financial data from a variety of data sources and source systems.
This greatly reduces the time you have to do the actual financial controlling: analysing data and deriving appropriate recommendations and strategies.
LucaNet’s CPM solution makes everything more efficient and reliable. Our automated system optimises your financial controlling processes and provides financial managers like you with all the information they need to make their decisions more quickly and accurately.
The tool is easy to use, enabling you to confidently make all the adjustments you need to prepare reports without relying on support from your IT department – which makes it much easier to keep to those deadlines. The LucaNet CPM solution makes your life easier, minimising mistakes and allowing you to concentrate on your real job.
