In mid-February, the recent BARC Scores were published. Once again, they examined solution providers for Integrated Planning and BI as well as Financial Performance Management in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and evaluated them against specific criteria. Unit4 Prevero, a Corporate Performance Management (CPM) and Business Intelligence (BI) solution, was named Market Leader in the Integrated Planning and BI Score for the third consecutive year alongside IBM, SAP, Jedox and BOARD. In Financial Performance Management, Unit4 Prevero scored particularly well for legal consolidation and was recognized as a Challenger. This makes Unit4 Prevero one of the few solutions to achieve very good results in both Scores. The evaluation is based, among other things, on the vendor’s market position (market execution) as well as the functionality and integration of the portfolio they offer (portfolio capabilities).
The BARC Score, Integrated Planning and BI, evaluates software functionality with regards to planning, ease of use, product strategy and customer satisfaction amongst other criteria. The key capabilities evaluated in the Financial Performance Management Score include financial planning, consolidation and portfolio integration. In total, 13 different providers were examined for the Financial Performance Management Score; the Integrated Planning and BI Score is based on the evaluation of 18 vendor offerings.
Matthias Thurner, co-founder of Prevero and Chief Product Officer at Unit4: "It's a great honor for us to be rated so highly in both BARC Scores and to be recognized as a market leader in Integrated Planning and BI for the third time in a row. And the fact that we have been recognized as a Challenger in Financial Performance Management this year is both a pleasure and a strong incentive. For us, this assessment confirms that we are on the right track with our solution strategy, which is fully focused on customer requirements. I believe that the high acceptance of our products, the close collaboration with our customers and the outstanding commitment and loyalty of our employees have played a major role in the achievement of this result. We will do our best to continue on this path."
