Caritasverband Rhein-Kreis Neuss e.V.

What was your starting point?

Before the Corporate Planning software was introduced in 1997, there were no tools for corporate performance management or BI at our organization. In 2006, during a merger, Corporate Planner was developed further and became the central BI tool for the new general association.

What were your highlights?

Corporate Planner enables us to drill down from the highest group aggregation level, through companies, facilities, cost centres, accounts and postings, to our document management system’s voucher display, and thus to make data transparent quickly. In the CP tree, I can go straight to the individual levels at any time and evaluate a wide variety of topics in seconds.

What lessons have you learned?

Data quality is crucial for success. This is where bullshit in means bullshit out.
