In this video, Bart Cambré, Group Controller, and Boban Bekkers, Financial Controller, explain how Sigma Conso helps them produce consolidated accounts autonomously, without the intervention of consultants.

Working with Sigma Conso: the benefits in a few words

  • Technological edge:
    • A modern, easy-to-use interface
    • Powerful software: consolidation calculations are performed within seconds (instead of minutes, as it was the case with the software used previously)
  • Low total cost of ownership:
    • The finance teams wanted to set-up the application themselves and are now able to manage the software autonomously (add accounts, new entities, etc)
