07.10.2014 - LucaNet AG awarded "TOP CONSULTANT" 2014/2015

LucaNet AG named one of the best consulting companies

Germany is home to thousands of consulting companies, but only the top 100 receive the Top Consultant seal – awarded this year for the fifth time.

These include Berlin-based LucaNet AG, a provider of software and consulting for consolidation, planning, reporting and analysis. The company underwent the certification procedure of Prof. Dr. Dietmar Fink of the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University. Fink awards the Top Consultant Seal together with compamedia GmbH, a company that is specialised in benchmarking for medium-sized companies. Mentor for the project is Hans Eichel, former German Federal Minister of Finance.

Customers were interviewed

The deciding factor for awarding of the Top Consultant seal is a consultancy service tailored to individual customers and oriented towards medium-sized companies. During the evaluation procedure, in addition to answering Prof. Dr. Dietmar Fink's questions, LucaNet AG therefore had to list ten reference customers. These customers answered questions about professionalism, performance and also their general level of satisfaction with the company.

LucaNet is one of the leading providers

LucaNet AG is one of the leading providers of software and consulting for business intelligence in accounting. LucaNet software excels through its consistent focus on intuitive usability and use of the latest technologies. It is designed for immediate use by users without specialised IT expertise. The company head office is located in Berlin, with further locations in western and southern Germany. Internationally, LucaNet is represented in Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Ukraine and China. "From the very beginning, we at LucaNet have worked consistently on meeting the wishes and requirements of our customers. Receiving the Top Consultant seal of approval for a second time is a great validation of our work," says Oliver Schmitz, member of the Executive Board at LucaNet AG.

This was the fifth time that Professor Fink and compamedia had compared companies across Germany before awarding the "Top Consultant" title.
Divided into seven categories, the quality seal of approval is held by 100 companies this year: 51 management companies, 20 IT consultancies and 16 personnel consultancies, ten organisational developers, three coaches, one CSR consultancy and one technical consultancy (two companies won awards in two categories). During benchmarking, the award-winning consultancies achieved a result of either good or very good.

"As ever, the consultancy market appears unclear and poorly defined. The 'Top Consultant' award defines criteria and clarifies consulting services. The customer interviews ensure credibility and reliability," says Prof. Fink. LucaNet AG develops software solutions for consolidation, planning, reporting and analysis.
