The duration of a project to introduce SmartStart Consolidation based on CCH® Tagetik until the go-live is approximately four to five full working weeks; The first week of conception will be done together with the customer, followed by two to three weeks parameterisation by pmOne. It is necessary for the user to attend the F & R training for CCH® Tagetik, so that in the fourth or fifth week after the project starts, the transfer and introduction to the finished consolidation application takes place according to the "Ready-For-Test" approach.
The successful use of Smart Start Consolidation presupposes the existence of a suitable group account plan, which is conceptually reviewed for applicability only and, if necessary, modified. A redesign of the chart of accounts is explicitly not part of the implementation project. The predefined structures for the data model construction must be provided by the customer in machine-processable form (Excel). For this a structure file is provided by pmOne.
The consolidation issues are analyzed on the basis of old qualifications and taken into account in the concept. Smart Start Consolidation is used to create the core system, balance sheet and income statement. Smart Start Consolidation significantly accelerates the introduction of CCH® Tagetik for consolidation and reduces the overhead of the launch project compared to a "greenfield" launch. Smart Start Consolidation has been used successfully in numerous projects. We are happy to give you references.
