Corporate Performance Management

Q: What is unique about Longview Corporate Performance Management (also known as Enterprise Performance Management and Business Performance Management) solution?

A: A lot. For starters, it provides a single, unified solution. One program for all functions, whether you use them or not. Longview supports the diverse needs of your organization including: reporting, planning, budgeting, forecasting, modeling, consolidation, tax, and analysis. Longview provides you with a financially accurate core of information with the ability to expose it to all authorized employees in a secure environment, from finance to sales to operations.

Q: Is it easy to implement?

A. Yes. Longview knows that finance departments and IT resources have limited time to implement and maintain software. That’s why we’ve created simple easy-to-use administration interfaces and initial system load files to implement and go live quickly. Plus, we work directly with you to get things up and running as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Q: What pain points will the Longview CPM application solve for my organization?

A: It might be easy for a fast food chain to create a hamburger that tastes the same no matter what country it is served in, but it is not easy for a global enterprise to apply the same business rules, accounting principles and financial reporting practices to operations in different countries. To paint an accurate financial picture, global enterprises have to put in place systems that compile financial data from geographically dispersed divisions using a myriad of technological applications, a variety of accounting practices, business rules and cultural expectations. That solution is offered by Longview, where your organization's planning, budgeting, forecasting, consolidation, financial and management reporting, modeling, tax and analysis requirements are supported with a single application.
