Sigma Conso, an international supplier of CPM software and services, has admitted Satriun Group to its partner network. As part of the collaboration, Satriun Group has been mandated to implement Sigma Conso’s CPM software suite in the Netherlands. 

Brussels headquartered Sigma Conso provides software that helps CFO’s run and improve their financial and corporate performance management (CPM) processes. The firm’s solution, which can be hosted at the client site and is also available in PaaS and SaaS modus, facilitates among others consolidation and reporting, intra-group account transaction reconciliation, budgeting and financial planning. 

To support its over 500+ clients globally with consulting and implementation support for its CPM suite solution, Sigma Conso has an international partner network comprising of experts in the field of finance, consultancy and technology services. The network distinguishes between three types of partners: resellers (firms that are empowered to sell Sigma Conso solutions in return for a commission), referrers (also known as ‘ambassadors’; firms that recommend Sigma Conso's products and services) and consultants (consulting firms that have the expertise and capacity to implement Sigma Conso’s software). 

Among the firm’s partners are several well-known consulting brands, including Grant Thornton, the Big Four (Deloitte, EY, KPMG and PwC), as well as local players, such as the likes of Finext (a Netherlands based consultancy), CapFinance (an advisory from Switzerland), DBA (s a correspondent of RSM based in France), JW Consulting (a consultancy firm based in France) and PML Advisory (an advisory from Nigeria).

The latest consultant to join Sigma Conso’s partner ranks is Satriun Group, a consulting firm with offices in the Netherlands and Switzerland. Dominique Galloy, Managing Director of Sigma Conso, reflects on the background behind the partnership: “We opened an office in the Netherlands in 2015 and to support our development on the market, we were looking for partners that have the necessary business expertise and with a good track record in CPM. Satriun Group met our expectations and it seemed a logical choice to join forces.”

Galloy says that the Dutch market offers great potential for the firm as the country hosts the European headquarters of dozens of large international groups. “Many of these multinational organisations are looking for a solution to simplify their financial management. The CPM suite from Sigma Conso perfectly suits the requirements of those groups: the software applications are flexible, user-friendly, full-web and offer a low total cost of ownership”, he remarks.

Casper van Leeuwen, one of Satriun Group’s two co-founders, comments, “Satriun Group is always looking for the best solutions on the market and believes in the efficiency and performance of the Corporate Performance Management software of Sigma Conso. We attach great importance to offering added value to our clients and next to the business expertise of Sigma Conso, the software also offers complete functional coverage. We are convinced that this partnership will help us realise our common goals.”

Satriun Group is also a consulting partner of SAP, Oracle, Anaplan, Tagetik, CXO-Cockpit and OneStream Software.

Grey Consulting and Makerversity announce strategic partnership

05 April 2019 Consultancy.uk

Grey Consulting has forged a new alliance with Makerversity, a 500-strong community of the brightest creative innovators, headquartered at Somerset House, London. The partnership hopes to tap into the experimental community to develop pioneering solutions for Grey Consulting’s clients.

In August 2018, one of the world’s largest design agencies surprised the business world by launching a dedicated consulting outfit. The news came as the two industries continued on their trajectory towards a historic synthesis. The consulting industry has been engaged in a pitched battle with the advertising and design space for the past few years, as the former increasingly encroaches on the territory of the latter via a protracted campaign of mergers and acquisitions; but there had been little traffic moving in the other direction.

At its launch, Grey Consulting was not billed as a direct competitor to established consultancies. However, the firm behind the new entity hopes that its creative experience will give it a competitive edge in winning consulting business from its existing clients. The Grey Group is a global advertising and marketing agency with headquarters in New York City, and 432 offices in 96 countries, operating in 154 cities. Grey Consulting opened its doors with a view to aiding clients within the areas of business and brand design, innovation and digital transformations.Grey Consulting and Makerversity announce strategic partnership

Now, as the firm looks to further expand its footprint in the market, Grey Consulting has unveiled details of a ground-breaking new alliance with Makerversity, a 500-strong community of creative innovators headquartered at Somerset House, London. The alignment with Makerversity is hoped to unlock the potential of collaborating with one of the world’s most experimental communities.

Makerversity curates and convenes the best talent across product design, fashion, art and experimental architecture, sustainable materials, IoT, digital manufacturing, and coding. It provides spaces and workshops for professional makers to develop and create their work, supported by Somerset House Trust. The alliance is expected to enable Grey Consulting to develop pioneering solutions for its clients, together with innovators who make something amazing for a living, every day. 

Leo Rayman, Grey Consulting CEO, commented, “This gives our clients the potential to access a network of some of the most diverse and innovative individuals in the world today. Being so tightly connected to a community of makers means we don’t just develop transformational strategies but can quickly realise them in three dimensions. This sets Grey Consulting apart from the pure play strategy houses who are sometimes criticised for not making their thinking real at the pace modern businesses require.” 

Fiona Dent, CEO of Makerversity, added, “Makerversity acts as a catalyst for unexpected encounters, fostering collaborations between an incredible range of the brightest leading creators and innovators. Our experimental approach and engaged members, whose own practice is defining our world, create highly original new outcomes. We are delighted to bring this philosophy to a wider audience and generate interesting projects for Makerversity members through our partnership with Grey Consulting.”
