“Customers have asked for and have been involved in bringing about these step-change improvements to the industry’s leading solution for budgeting, planning, forecasting, consolidations, scorecards, analysis, modeling and reporting,” said Mark Nashman, President & CTO, Clarity Systems. “We’re confident that this announcement will continue to fuel the rapid growth of the firm, enabling us to maintain our lead as the fastest-growing CPM vendor in the world ,” he added.
Powerful New Consolidations Solution
With a brand new financial consolidations engine, CLARITY 7 Consolidations now avoids duplication of data through optimized data storage, dramatically improving processing speeds. Not only does CLARITY 7 Consolidations deliver multi-GAAP/IFRS functionality, multi-currency capabilities, inter-company eliminations, and all of the other capabilities an Office of Finance user would expect in a comprehensive consolidations solution, but it also delivers sophisticated functionality to perform simulations on the consolidation models.
“Users can quickly view the financial impact of changes in ownership structure, hierarchical structure or other changes to the model, without impacting the base scenario. And all of this is delivered in a fully parameter-driven configuration platform, making it very easy to set up to meet the most complex global consolidations requirements,” said Nashman.
