the challenge

Finmeccanica SpA is Italy‘s leading high-tech group and one of the global top ten in the aerospace, defense and security sector. The group employs 67,000 people in 406 offices including 172 production sites in 50 countries worldwide.

 

Finmeccanica drives its entire business through innovation – to deliver competitive products and services, meet current and future market demands, and generate value for both clients and shareholders. In 2013, the group’s central finance department decided to implement an innovation of its own – a system for preparing, sharing and publishing management data throughout the group.

 

Its prime goals were to simplify and speed up the process of producing reports each month – from general management reporting to specialized reports for the CFO. The project, which started in March 2013, was completed in a matter of months.

the solution

Finmeccanica has deployed Tagetik as a stand-alone Disclosure Management software solution which automatically extracts and loads financial data from HFM. The automated data checks and common coding across the document save users valuable time in the reporting process. In addition to assigning access rights based on each person’s responsibilities, the department can now follow the progress of each activity and see who has done what through the built-in workflow. With Tagetik, users can also generate reports in Microsoft PowerPoint and easily convert them to PDF files as well as support multiple versions of the same document. Features such as these promote a truly collaborative approach to the disclosure management process.


“Thanks to Tagetik's Disclosure Management, we can now deliver consistent, reliable information in our CFO report,” summarizes D’Addario. “The standardized format and quality makes it easier to read. Since we can produce new reports based on previous filed editions, we can concentrate on the commentary. Through the structured workflow, we even can carefully monitor the activities of each controller. Overall, Tagetik has accelerated our monthly closing and management reporting cycles, and we can invest the time we have saved to check, analyze and comment the numbers in more detail.”

 

The finance department already plans to extend the solution to produce the quarterly presentation to the executive team and board of directors. It is also evaluating options to extend the solution to include budgeting and other capabilities that are involved in the planning process.
