More Features

Performance Management

Corporate performance management software from Tagetik unifies a multitude of complex processes including budgeting, forecasting, consolidation, and performance reporting. With CCH Tagetik, your company’s decision makers can finally unify key performance management processes and manage business performance in a more comprehensive manner. And since Tagetik believes in simplicity, all of this can be done without having to integrate multiple software platforms, products and technologies. CCH Tagetik has one database, one set of data, and one calculation engine.

With CCH Tagetik, there is no longer a need to purchase and implement separate software and technology for budgeting, forecasting, consolidation, and other key CPM processes.

Disclosure Management

There was a time when creating statutory filings and fulfilling financial reporting requirements involved only Finance staff and data. Not anymore. Today, information must be aggregated from multiple stakeholders - a process that remains manual, disjointed and error-prone. What’s required is a streamlined, automated process for collaboration, workflow, compliance and control of the entire disclosure cycle, from start to finish.

This is what CCH Tagetik Collaborative Disclosure Management (CDM) software delivers. In a unified, comprehensive software solution, you can address the Last Mile of Finance by automating and controlling the close-to-disclosure process from end to end.

CCH Tagetik Collaborative Disclosure Management (CDM) is the only software solution that stores disclosure management data in the same database as consolidated actual and plan data. This means with CCH Tagetik you can begin the disclosure management process earlier and have a full audit trail of all changes from consolidation all the way through disclosure in one place. With CCH Tagetik, disclosure reporting is fast, accurate, collaborative, and auditable, saving you time and effort all the way through the process; not just at the end.

Business Intelligence

Financial data is only as valuable as your ability to access it. If it’s stored across multiple sources, it is difficult to combine, analyze, and take action on. This is why having a consolidated performance management and business intelligence software solution like CCH Tagetik can dramatically improve business performance. Because the data is already in CCH Tagetik you have immediate access to it through CCH Tagetik Business Intelligence functionality.

Financial Governance

Corporate governance. Risk management. Regulatory compliance. They’ve never been more crucial to business success than they are today. Yet organizations still struggle with controlling these critical functions in their Corporate Performance Management processes.

CCH Tagetik Financial Governance capabilities can help. A unified approach to Corporate Performance Management (CPM) and Financial Governance delivers a collaborative and controlled environment that lets you gather, organize, document and automate your control processes and risk management.

CCH Tagetik Financial Governance helps you simplify and manage all activities related to financial governance, risk and compliance, so you can:

  • Monitor and control internal auditing and risk management processes

  • Gain full traceability of data and transactions from start to finish, including who did what, when, where and why

  • Comply with regulations and produce multiple regulatory reports from a single source of validated data

  • Manage operational risks that impact financial performance

  • Set controls, thresholds, validation, and sign-offs

  • Run simulations and calculate the impact of possible actions on forecasts

CCH Tagetik Financial Governance software is built to work the way your business works, so you benefit from a tool that’s configurable to your methodology or organizational model without complex coding or scripting. As a result, you can quickly adapt the application to changing requirements for Financial Governance processes without IT intervention.

Budgeting, Planning & Forecasting

For most companies, operational activities are not strongly linked to business strategy, but Tagetik’s corporate performance management solution unifies all of your budgeting, planning and forecasting processes in a single software solution.

With CCH Tagetik you gain full control of your budgeting, planning and forecasting processes on three separate levels: strategic, financial, and operational all in one place. You will also improve accountability and transparency, have a full audit trail, and a tight link between all of your planning processes. From communicating high-level objectives to developing annual plans, to reforecasting, everything can be done within CCH Tagetik performance management software with less manual effort.

Cash Flow Planning

Today’s CFO needs a corporate performance management software solution that can unify cash flow planning with operational and financial planning processes. With the financial intelligence built-in to CCH Tagetik you can automatically see the cash impact of any changes you make to your plans. With unique double entry logic, you can make changes or test different scenarios, and the cash impact will automatically be calculated.

Your Finance Department Will Have the Freedom To:

Cost Allocation & Profitability Analysis

In today’s competitive market climate, it’s essential to be able to determine which products, customers, channels and other factors are impacting profitability – either positively or negatively and continually monitor their contribution. But getting all of the costs into the “right bucket” can be difficult without embarking on a full Activity-Based Costing exercise.

CCH Tagetik’s Cost Allocation & Profitability Analysis gives you the ability to tag expenses and revenues directly attributable to the product, customer or channel and also has a powerful allocation engine for allocating indirect costs to any level of detail (even SKU). This improves the speed and accuracy of profitability analysis and provides detailed visibility into profitability in a collaborative environment.

Cost Allocation & Profitability Analysis Features Include:

  • Profitability Modeling - Map control structures for cost objects, activities, resources and their relationships.

  • Allocation modules - Allocate costs and revenues to resources and activities and allocate indirect costs with standard or waterfall allocations.

  • Drivers - Derive your allocations from any number of financial or operational drivers (revenue, quantity, headcount etc.).

  • Reporting and profitability analysis - Generate reports that intuitively visualize results of different allocations. Analyze profitability using filters, drill-down, and adjustments that provide detailed analysis of various allocation models.

  • Journal entries - Make manual or automated adjustments that take advantage of automatic double entry logic.

  • ’What-if’ analysis - Generate alternative analysis scenarios and compare scenarios to optimize profitability.

  • Data - Direct access to actual and plan data stored in CCH Tagetik. Automate import of data from other sources with built-in ETL capabilities.

  • Traceability - Manage accounting standards by segmenting your data into different components (sourcing entity, receiving entity), and analyze data in detail. Leverage structures already created in planning and consolidation processes for profitability analysis.

  • Workflow - Control the process and accountability at all levels using the same process control used in planning and consolidation.

Dashboard & Scorecarding

Fast and accurate information is only valuable if the right people can access it at the right time, in the right format, with the ability to take action. In today’s environment, you can’t afford to wait for integration routines, data extractions, and loading into a data warehouse just to have graphical visibility.

CCH Tagetik performance management software helps your organization translate strategy into operational objectives that drive both behavior and performance, define and gather metrics to measure and control business performance; and measure progress with a linkage between cause and effect. You can track and analyze performance in real time through a user-friendly dashboard, improving management insight which leads to better, faster, more relevant decisions and action.

Supporting the Most Well Known Methodologies (e.g., Balanced Scorecard, Six Sigma, etc.), CCH Tagetik Dashboard & Scorecarding Offers These Advanced Features and Benefits:

  • Dashboarding: Define dynamic, user-friendly dashboards that can be customized by users. Create drill-down to detail data and even to tasks, adjustments, and commentary.

XBRL Tagging and Submission

Using CCH Tagetik, Finance departments can unify the process of preparing, sharing and publishing financial data ranging from management reports to statutory filings, sustainability reports and XBRL submission. What makes CCH Tagetik unique is its ability to automate the entire consolidation, closing and disclosure process, offering full XBRL and iXBRL support all in a single solution.

XBRL

CCH Tagetik brings XBRL production in-house, reducing costs and risks, and giving you greater control and ownership than outsourcing XBRL to an external printer. That makes it easy to incorporate last-second changes into your disclosure documents and provides more time for reviews before submission. All of which reduces errors and risk.

CCH Tagetik Supports Your XBRL Reporting By:
  • Producing XBRL reporting information on both entity and group levels

  • Importing XBRL taxonomies with the ability to extend

  • Automating tagging of financial data and XBRL taxonomies

  • Displaying reports in XBRL format

  • Retaining tagging from one period to the next (eliminating repeated retagging)

  • Producing XML files for required instances

iXBRL

CCH Tagetik allows you to create iXBRL submissions and validate them to ensure they’re error free before filing. You can tag financial data and submit it in iXBRL, thus meeting online submission requirements for corporate tax returns in the UK. The solution provides support for all phases of the financial information lifecycle including preparation, validation, analysis and dissemination of iXBRL reports.

CCH Tagetik works seamlessly with Fujitsu Interstage XWand®, which is used by the SEC for XBRL filings. You can manually or automatically tag items, import and extend established taxonomies, and generate filings in XBRL or iXBRL format from the same data you use for other reporting.

User Reviews of CCH Tagetik

Submitted on June 26th, 2019 by David Pettit from Worthington Industries

We have three major divisions and they all have different disparate systems so we’re able to use a software like Tagetik to consolidate them and bring reporting into one place. You’re just getting one point of truth.

Before, we were on Hyperion Enterprise and then when we went looking for a replacement, we ended up with Tagetik. Obviously being able to easily load from different disparate GL systems and use the data entry form to load data as well allows us to quickly and easily get the data in the database and then we can move on and start the report. The number one reason we went with them because everything was combined into one system. Number two, the customer service that Tagetik has offered has been very helpful. The web-based application to allow remote users to easily connect and use the system (which was not something we had with Hyperion).

Our best look scenario was basically taking and combining our actuals and the most current forecast or plan and building up a scenario instead of doing a forecast every month like a rolling forecast. It was taking me a minimum of two days, sometimes up to three days to complete it once we had all the financials done from the book. We were able to build using the tools within Tagetik to bring that two to three days down to fifteen minutes. It’s saved an enormous amount of time.

We can run Tagetik as we go through the month so the business units are done earlier are from the whole company. So they can run it at day two or day three and they’ll have their best look all ready for them and they don’t have to wait for day five when I’m running it.
