Our Expertise

Every single company needs to have a controller who takes on the role of a business partner in the planning process. Having an EPM tool to support the above processes is key within the company to know what kind of activities deliver growth to determine how to allocate the resources to support the companies’ strategy. In addition, these software help to make it easier for finance managers to produce more accurate budgets and perform what-if scenario analysis.

Our passion at Sonum is to help organizations make their budget, planning and forecasting processes smarter, faster and easier by eliminating all the activities which do not add value and keep the ones which do. Thanks to our more than 20 years of experience at companies such as AB InBev, eDreams, Yamaha, Vivo Energy and Philips we know the industries best practises and we can advise our customers on what works best for them and what does not.

There is no universal planning tool which fits all companies no matter size, needs, budget, culture, structure or maturity of operational planning process, but Sonum is able to advise and support customers with selection and implementation of “best-in-class” planning solutions. Thanks to our expertise and experience we support our clients in choosing the best solution for their specific needs and we make sure that organizations are ready for the future. Only then can we consider our mission as successful.
