The challenge

Lack of data reliability in global reporting due to outdated software

The indoor air specialist’s finance team had been working with outdated software for more than ten years and, on top of that, were experiencing a lack of support from the supplier. That’s why FläktGroup were looking for a solution that would guarantee data reliability while making all figures accessible to every international manager and liberating them from error-prone Excel tables. They wanted a tool that would make work easier, save time and function on a global scale.

The solution

One software solution for all numbers and all currencies

The company's finance director at the time chose LucaNet as their new software solution. It didn’t take long for the benefits to become tangible. Data immediately became easier to follow – in all currencies and for every team member across the globe. From cash flow statements and the analysis of fixed assets, reserves, stocks and loans to the derivation of balance sheets, P&L, reporting and ad hoc financial reports – the group now have everything allocated through LucaNet and benefit from flexible variation in views as well as having gained an additional three working days per month on average.

Daniel Jennings, Group Financial Accountant at FläktGroup, cites one of the biggest improvements from LucaNet as being that the consolidation process is now easy to follow and accessible to all of the company’s financial managers worldwide. Every controller can access his or her own financial data directly. No more "shadow reporting" – everyone is working on the same system. "Further major added value for us includes automatic generation of currency differences and the ability to see current consolidation status on the system right away whenever changes are made."
