Implementing Talentia CPM

finance expertise - Talentia CPM

A single financially intelligent platform that adds value to multiple financial processes that share structures and dimensions. You choose your starting point according to your priorities, for example begin with financial statement reporting. Then, create the foundations only once that can then be re used for additional processes, eg consolidation or planning.  

Leverage the most widely used tool for finance teams, Excel. This ensures your team can use their existing skills to help implement and manage the system going forward. No coding or proprietary skills are required avoiding costly and lengthy projects or dependency on 3rd party consultants.
