SAP BPC Planning
SAP BPC is a proven and flexible planning solution. The agile SAP planning software has been used by leading organizations for years, both in the Netherlands and abroad.
SAP BPC (Business Planning and Consolidation) combines consolidation and planning in one solution. This combination ensures seamless integration of the various financial processes within your organization. This provides speed and reduces errors, so you can devote more time and attention to the core activities of your financial processes.
The various solutions within SAP help both multinationals and SMEs to streamline all their business operations; this goes far beyond just financial applications. Of course, the SAP BPC consolidation software integrates smoothly with the other business process solutions of SAP.

The benefits of planning with SAP BPC
The future of planning is one integrated model for real-time consolidation and planning, which affects the entire supply chain. SAP BPC helps you with real-time, integrated planning for your entire organization. It is fast and accessible from anywhere, at any time. And it combines the planning of your sales, operations, and supply chain into one clear whole. You can also easily share these insights with users via real-time dashboards.
The planning solution uses SAP HANA. The new, powerful HANA database platform accelerates the performance of your planning enormously.
However, the most frequently mentioned benefit from the users is the Excel look & feel. The familiar Excel environment makes the Performance Management software extremely user-friendly to those without prior experience. The Excel-enabled planning tables help you to support the business even further.
