Our Value Proposition: For organisations struggling with increased headcount costs and lost revenue as a result of inefficient processes and complicated group reporting systems, Rinedata can improve the overall effectiveness of the management function by streamlining business processes using a combination of cutting edge software from SAP and proven consulting services culminated over the last seventeen years - ultimately allowing more time for decision making and corrective action.

SAP BPC can be initially implemented to address one business process such as management consolidation but quickly be extended to address other processes e.g. business modelling, planning and budgeting. This organic scalability is a unique differentiator of SAP BPC’s unified platform.
