Talentia CPM is a flexible, collaborative and web-based corporate performance management system for consolidation, reporting, budgeting and dashboard analysis, designed to provide organisations with reliable key performance indicators to guide operational and strategic decision making.

Consolidation Reporting – New standards of compliance, increased transparency and traceability of financial data are putting ever greater pressure on the time available in each reporting cycle. Consolidation reporting transforms data into consolidated financial information through automated processes to increase the speed and reliability of financial reporting. It enables, for example, the ability to compare and reconcile between management and statutory reporting; consolidate according to any accounting and reporting standards; and analyse information according to legal & internal management structures.

Reporting Dashboard – A unique collaborative solution that securely integrates the process of reporting financial and operational information for better business performance analysis. CPM dashboards increase efficiency by enabling the reporting process to be carried out reliably and on time through the creation of instant reports relating to measuring performance, monitoring Key Performance Indicators and analysing information e.g. ‘what if’ scenarios.

Budget Reporting – Gathering, processing and reporting of budget data, it ensures the organisation can construct a customised data repository, easily model its budget rules according to its business and quickly implement a collaborative work environment enabling all users to efficiently perform all tasks relating to budget management.

e-Pilot – A data validation workflow tool that organises the process of gathering and validating the data needed for producing the consolidated financial statements, management reports and budget/forecasts with fast and easy configuration. It can be customised for each reporting cycle, enable the user to see the status of the validation process, and contribute to moving it forward according to their specific authorisation level. Additionally, it streamlines users’ work by facilitating the completion of all tasks necessary to produce a periodic report.

e-Collect – In managing the quality of data, e-Collect can facilitate and automate the collection, mapping, conversion, validation and loading of financial and non-financial data coming from other systems. It enhances the CPM software and is dedicated to supporting data upload via the web.
