Use a consolidation solution more adaptable and flexible than SAP FC in order to meet external growth challenges
Thanks to accelerated growth within its market, Seqens Group has acquired several companies in the past few years. To meet the challenges of this external expansion, Seqens Group wanted a more adaptable and flexible consolidation application. A long-time customer of SAP FC, in 2015, Seqens made the decision to switch to Conso & Report, a cloud-based consolidation solution developed by Viareport.

" By using a cloud-based solution, we enjoy real-time upgrades as well as developments and enhancements that Viareport makes to the application on a regular basis. This is a major advantage as compared with SAP FC. We were able to reduce costs related to application maintenance and we no longer need to perform version upgrades to benefit fully from the tool’s performance. "
" Thanks to cloud computing, we now enjoy enhanced usability. The user interface is much more modern and user-friendly as compared with SAP FC. Users find it easier to browse through Conso & Report. "
" Because I didn’t initially have a background in consolidation, I had never really worked with a consolidation tool before. However, I was able to become operational with Conso & Report really quickly because the tool is very intuitive and easy to adopt. In my opinion, users don’t need extensive training in using the solution because it is easy to post journal entries, generate reports and enter data in packages even when you’re new to the tool. "
" When there are new users, I don’t need to ask for additional training from Viareport either. The documentation I distribute contains all of the key information they need to start their first consolidation as well as answers to most of their questions. This shows how easy it is to adopt Conso & Report. "
" I work with Viareport teams on a daily basis because we constantly need specific developments in order to meet Group requirements. These can, at times, involve large-scale projects. I therefore have close working ties with Viareport consultants. The support provided by Viareport is a considerable asset. Viareport teams are available and very responsive, thus enabling us to implement specific developments rapidly. Thanks to Viareport’s solutions, we can now reduce manual data entry significantly and save time despite increasingly shorter period-closing lead times. "
