For years, SAP Business Planning and Consolidation (BPC) has helped enterprises that struggle with reducing the time spent on “closing the books” while meeting financial reporting requirements. It’s been a challenge for enterprises who also want to streamline planning, budgeting, and financial forecasting and consolidation processes.

SAP helps you overcome these challenges with BPC. In addition to a faster, more accurate close, BPC provides you the ability to run what-if scenarios to drive business.

Add in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) and your team is now equipped with additional visualization, enhanced planning, and predictive capabilities allowing you to fully leverage your investment in SAP.

Adjust plans and forecasts on the fly

We know how important it is for our clients to have the ability to easily adjust plans and forecasts, quickly perform month-end and year-end closing cycles, and ensure compliance with financial reporting standards. With SAP Business Planning and Consolidation’s (SAP BPC) planning, budgeting, forecasting, and financial consolidation capabilities you can achieve all of this.
