Software for planning and controlling
Place your trust in software that is not beholden to a particular industry but rather covers all aspects of business planning. Say goodbye to traditional planning systems that are based mainly on Excel spreadsheets and non-standardized data and lay the foundations for professional financial controlling and integrated financial planning.
LucaNet’s planning software has earned top rankings in BARC The Planning Survey, and particularly impressed judges in the categories of data transfer, user friendliness, and performance. Because it’s based on a standardized system, LucaNet.Planner puts you in a position to automate your planning processes and manage these in a flexible way.
Along with operational planning aspects, such as sales, project or HR planning, LucaNet.Planner automatically calculates the effects of these aspects on the profit and loss statement, balance sheet, and liquidity.
LucaNet.Planner takes information from upstream databases as a basis, such as financial accounting, HR, and CRM systems. LucaNet offers interfaces that are immediately usable and standardized for around 200 source systems that can be easily modified or extended when necessary.
The data model behind LucaNet software has been tested in accordance with the IDW PS 880 auditing standard, with evaluations of P&L, balance sheet, cashflow, etc. and always remains internally consistent and valid.
LucaNet supports users to develop detailed planned time-series using a range of forecast wizards. Scenarios and (rolling) projections can be derived on the basis of existing planning. These can be contrasted against each other and evaluated using flexible display options.
LucaNet can be managed by professional users, completely independent of IT departments. This means your team of professionals is completely empowered to take action, ensuring that they can focus on what really matters – analyzing the most important planning data.
Bidirectional MS Excel integration with LucaNet.Planner guarantees users additional flexibility, whether with planning or with report preparation. If a consolidated view is needed within the context of a group, LucaNet.Planner can be expanded in a way that’s flexible with the LucaNet.Financial Consolidation module.
