LONDON, September 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Tagetik, a global provider of Performance Management, Enterprise Governance, Risk Compliance and Business Intelligence software solutions, today announced that Keller Group plc, the international ground engineering specialist, has selected Tagetik 3.0 to simplify the Group's consolidation and reporting processes and to create a single data repository for all contracts and tenders worldwide. Keller Group is renowned for providing technically advanced and cost effective ground engineering solutions world-wide.

Following a thorough evaluation of all the major vendors, we selected Tagetik: they offered a good combination of approach and functionality which would allow us to deliver both the existing financial consolidation functionality together with improved contract and tender reporting; our preference was for an Excel-based solution that sits on SQL Server which Tagetik could offer; we were impressed with Tagetik's integration approach, and during the course of the project Tagetik has continually been prepared to go the extra mile for us, always bringing solutions rather than potential problems and carefully listening to our specific requirements in order to deliver the most effective solution for the Keller Group business, explains Dave Benson, Group Financial Controller, Keller Group.

Group-wide Database

Alongside the solution to simplify financial consolidation, the project also encompasses the building of a single database of jobs and tenders across all Group operating companies. This will enable Keller Group to more effectively capture and analyse information across the Group.

Dave Benson explains, Quality information about jobs and tenders is important to the continued development of our business. Tagetik 3.0 will give us a more automated, centralised system to allow enhanced visibility of our jobs and tenders worldwide. A system that will enable us to more easily monitor key metrics for the Group as a whole, by region, business or even drill-down to individual contracts. Tagetik 3.0 will give us the level of visibility of our business operations that we require to run a world-class organisation.

Keller Group required a solution that could both simplify financial consolidation with complex currency requirements across operations in 30 countries and create a single database to streamline the reporting of Group jobs and tenders, added Shak Akhtar, Managing Director, Tagetik UK and Ireland. Tagetik 3.0 provides the ideal platform for both an effective consolidation system and an intuitive database to manage all jobs and tenders. The Tagetik team has a key role in implementing both systems to meet the required deadline and to support Keller Group in any system roll-out to subsidiary companies.

This project strongly confirms that Tagetik can help organisations to simplify the complexity in managing and monitoring financial performance and operational results, says Manuel Vellutini, Chief Operating Officer at Tagetik. As we are specifically dedicated to supporting customers with complex industry-specific needs, many international organisations are selecting Tagetik 3.0 to improve their business. Keller Group will benefit from a unified software environment with 'built-in' functionality to effectively manage financial processes at both corporate and operational levels.
