Overall Satisfaction with Tagetik

We use Tagetik for our global consolidation of financial statements. It is mainly used by the finance department. We also use it for our budgeting process. All key directors input their budgets and our back office compiles the data to create our global budget.
  • Tagetik is extremely flexible and customizable to your business needs.
  • It creates financial statement reports extremely fast and gives us the ability to slice and dice financial metrics in more ways than you can imagine.
  • I see Tagetik as a long term business partner to help us solve problems.
  • A solid implementation team and process.
  • Until you get familiar with the software, screens, buttons, etc, are not necessarily intuitive. It just takes time
  • Without being involved in the implementation process. A new user might have some difficulty getting up to speed on writing reports and using the system.
  • Having a liaison at Tagetik that really understands our business needs so they can help guide us at various stages on implementing parts of Tagetik that we may not be aware of.
  • Gave us a tool that can absolutely grow with us to help multi phase implementations.
  • A significant time savings in terms of the amount of time we used to spend running reports vs. the time we spend now. Unbelievable improvement.
  • Gives us the option to use Tagetik to solve business problems that perhaps we didn't have when we implemented Tagetik. It gives us options without the possibility of implementing a whole other software package.
Are all very different. Tagetik was more flexible and diverse and has the ability to grow with future unforeseen business issues.
Tagetik is very suited for consolidation but not appropriate for GL detail.
