LucaNet Retains Top Ranking in the 2020 BARC Score for FPM

Juliane Batliner Apr 7, 2020 Simply Finance

Another year, another chance for LucaNet to affirm its leading position in the DACH region: For the third time in a row, the market analysts at BARC have recognized the Berlin-based provider of Financial Performance Management software and consulting as the Financial Performance Management DACH Market Leader 2020.

“We’re thrilled to receive such high acclaim for our work,” says LucaNet CSO Dominik Duchon. “Being named the FPM market leader is something truly special because some of the underlying evaluation criteria are exactly the same as the quality standards we set for ourselves. They include maintaining the highest possible customer satisfaction, aligning our products with the market's current requirements, and combining them with a high degree of innovation.”

According to BARC, LucaNet retained its leading status thanks in large part to the many predefined business rules it offers for financial management, which are reflected in the way it integrates financial planning and consolidation and includes a large number of ready-to-use interfaces to all the common source systems. The outstanding feedback it received from customers in The Planning Survey 19  with regard to software performance, project duration, technical and specialist support, and the value its product offers for the money added further weight to LucaNet's case.

FPM has gained importance for more and more companies in recent years. Since 2018, the analysts at Würzburg’s BARC have followed suit by compiling a separate score for Financial Performance Management. But what exactly does this term mean, and how does it differ from CPM?

A simple explanation: How is FPM different from CPM?

Corporate Performance Management (CPM) and Financial Performance Management (FPM) both involve management processes that help companies manage and monitor their output. CPM is a term that describes all the procedures that relate to a company's established strategy. FPM, on the other hand, focuses specifically on a company's financial figures while combining its financial and strategic data to improve its planning and decision-making. In the process, the company relies on a single application to handle the core tasks of its financial department – financial consolidation, planning, reporting, and analysis, for example.
