Use Case

Establishment of an Integrated Performance Management Solution at UTA GmbH


The company

UTA GmbH is a leading provider of fuel cards, toll payment and fleet management services.

The initial situation

  • Until now, planning was done in Excel on the basis of a very complex cost accounting system, which also formed the basis for legal accounting. Consolidation was also done manually without system support.
  • The goal was to create an integrated system in which planning, consolidation and reporting could be mapped.

The approach

  • Implementation of IBM Cognos Controller to map commercial and management consolidation
  • Conception of an integrated and driver-based P&L and balance sheet planning based on sales planning
  • Integration of a forecast to map the monthly fast close as an internal monthly close
  • Complete technical implementation of the business concept in IBM Planning Analytics and connection of the planning with the actuals from the consolidation with the IBM Cognos Controller

Your Benefits

  • Integrated performance management solution across all processes and contents of group accounting and controlling
  • Establishment of the specialist department as the core contact for systems and processes (CPM solution in own hands)
  • Analysis capability in the actual data, traceability in the forecast and plan data as well as simulation capability through a driver-based model
"With the IBM platform we have created a solution with which we have integrated and automated consolidation, forecasting, planning and reporting. The 4C GROUP supported us fully from the conception to the implementation and rollout. At the same time, an internal team was set up and trained so that we are able to carry out further developments ourselves as far as possible and use Planning Analytics as our "performance hub"."
