From globalisation, to increasing competitive pressure, to new legal requirements, today’s corporates face a multitude of factors requiring effective risk management.
Complying with legal documentation and monitoring regulatory obligations are just two components of an effective risk management system. In addition to abiding by external rules, the broad concept of compliance includes measuring how closely a company is meeting its own internal specifications: company values, rules, processes, and how that impacts business objectives.
What are the risks implied by the company strategy? How can risk management support the achievement of company objectives?
prevero has the Answer
prevero Risk Planning provides companies of all sizes with software tools to identify and evaluate relevant risks, and make those measurements an integral part of the controlling process.
The system provides extensive documentation that allows finance teams to evaluate and understand the company situation at all times. In the case of an adverse event, the system supports crisis management by allowing finance teams to switch on pre-defined countermeasures. The financial effects of these risk-based measures can also be directly incorporated into financial planning.
That makes prevero Risk Planning an effective controlling instrument that enables users to actively influence the company‘s success. It offers a number of natural connection points to other central applications, such as comprehensive key figure systems, strategy management, as well as internal and external reporting.

Disconnected systems. Disparate data. Spreadsheet-based systems and processes are time consuming and error-prone. Yet nearly 90 per cent of organisations continue to use them in the planning, budgeting and forecasting process.
The typical budget is already out-of-date by the time it’s finalised, leaving management vulnerable to market volatility and unable to exert timely management over business performance.
It’s time to end the pain of traditional planning, budgeting and forecasting (PBF).

Structural changes, new qualification requirements, and demographic shifts have given new meaning to personnel management. In addition to controlling costs, analytics are becoming increasingly important. It is essential to discover the individual potential in the employee structure, and to identify developments on the job market at an early stage.
In the end, results depend on people. With the introduction of the balanced scorecard concept, an employee-oriented perspective has found its place in corporate performance management (CPM).
The prevero solution
prevero HR Planning enables companies to carry out medium and long-term planning, both at the employee level and across several cost centres at once. It provides all necessary functions for effective HR management, including data modelling, analysis, reporting, planning, and authorization control.
Changes to standard parameters such as resource utilization, pay scales, special payments or social expenses, are taken into account automatically. Predictive scenarios can then be analysed based on employee turnover, wage development, employees returning from parenthood, or age structure, to identify their different impacts on the organisation.
The software‘s reporting functions offer a range of standardized reports that can easily be extended by adding queries. Individual analysis can be created with only a few clicks, e.g. personnel requirement planning, phone expense management, recruiting process performance, or the calculation of pro-rata provisions for holiday leave.
For businesses to grow and evolve, efficient project management is an essential part of management. Successful change depends on running internal projects related to investment, construction, IT, or product development effectively. When it comes to external projects with customer or service provider touch points, effective project management becomes a matter of reputation.
Depending on scope, projects often involve a multitude of project managers, loads of resource, with processes and documentation that vary by need. Common tools for operative budget management often only allow for commercial monitor and control of single projects. When businesses are required to keep so many balls up in the air, this can jeopardise project success and put broader business objectives at risk.
Optimise Project Management with prevero
prevero Project Planning enables you to control several projects at once, and manage your project portfolio in a more efficient way. The system supports and assists you during the entire cycle: from concept development and application, through efficiency & profitability analysis, controlling and reporting, to post calculation.
Post-project learnings can be used to increase the efficiency and standardize project processes. Moreover, the prevero platform offers a seamless integration of all popular source systems, as well as group controlling and planning. In this way, customers are provided with a tool covering all requirements throughout the project value chain.
Even at the best of times, consolidation and financial close processes are complex, time-consuming and laden with risk. The connection of different ERP systems, coupled with factors like distance, language, and variances in accounting rules all threaten the speed and quality of financial statements.
Successful organizations also have to grapple with a growing number of entities, currencies, and intercompany transactions within a group. That makes it even harder to achieve fast close, or maintain optimal control over the audit process.
prevero consolidation makes reconciling intercompany transactions easier by handing back control to the entities themselves throughout the fiscal year. The solution automatically matches transactions and allows the involved partners to focus exclusively on any discrepancies detected.
Finance teams gain a fast and secure way to consolidate figures from various group subsidiaries. Different data types can be used for balance sheets and P&L, shareholdings, intercompany accounts in local or transaction currencies, group analysis, and analytics.

When working with complex group structures or more intensive requirements for analysis and reporting, prevero‘s multidimensional subsidiary management add-on provides multidimensional data collection, group data planning, and convenient dashboards.
