Zeelandia selects Satriun Group for CCH Tagetik implementation
AMSTERDAM, 22 January 2018
The Royal Zeelandia Group, a supplier to the professional bread and confectionery trade worldwide, selects Satriun Group to act as its implementation partner for CCH Tagetik as a replacement for its existing IBM TM1-based consolidation system. The engagement includes advisory on the definition of a Group Chart of Accounts and on best practices to automate financial consolidation postings, cash flow calculations, and intercompany profit in inventory elimination postings, and to achieve process efficiency gains for group reporting including delegated intercompany matching and increased data quality controls.
“We are keen to use the momentum of replacing IBM TM1 with CCH Tagetik to enhance our financial consolidation and reporting processes and methodologies,” says Marika Menschaar, Manager Corporate Control at Zeelandia, “and Satriun Group has demonstrated their capabilities to advise us with best practices. We are convinced that the CCH Tagetik software in combination with the implementation methodologies applied by Satriun Group enables us to consolidate and report faster and with increased value added to our board of management.”
Casper van Leeuwen, Partner at Satriun Group, comments: “We are extremely happy that Zeelandia recognizes our ability to combine management consulting services with integrator services, allowing to maximize the impact the implementation of CCH Tagetik will have on the organization and supporting the Corporate Control team for years to come. It is an exciting challenge to advise Zeelandia on the optimization of a broad array of financial- and management accounting concepts while at the same time guiding them through the change from IBM TM1 to CCH Tagetik.”
The engagement with Zeelandia is expected to take approximately six months from initiation up to delivery and sign off.
