CREDITO AGRICOLA GROUP

Statutory consolidation, Regulatory reporting, Management reporting


Using Tagetik, we were able to implement a comprehensive consolidation and reporting solution in just 14 weeks. Thanks to the software’s built-in functionality and modern underlying technology, we could easily integrate and unify data from several different platforms throughout our group and leverage it in other processes.  Best of all, we have achieved all of our objectives for this project thanks to the  excellent support of the consultants at FWD Advise and the ease in customizing Tagetik to our unique needs
