BlumShapiro and Tagetik recently announced that they have entered into a partner agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, both companies will collaborate over providing their US-based clients with comprehensive Corporate Performance Management (CPM) support services. BlumShapiro is a specialist accounting, tax and business consulting firm and Tagetik is one of the fastest growing global software companies within the Performance Management software industry.
Tagetik is a provider of Corporate Performance Management and Business Intelligence software for tasks such as budgeting, forecasting, financial consolidation, close, reporting, and disclosure among others.
In a statement, Mark Corsetti, VP and GM of Tagetik North America, said that, "There are so many companies who are unhappy with their current CPM solutions or would like to replace a spreadsheet-based system. With BlumShapiro we can now help customers fix these common issues, and then go beyond that by using BlumShapiro's Microsoft (News - Alert) expertise to help companies extend their ERP or SharePoint applications with CPM functionality or a cloud-based solution."
BlumShapiro and Tagetik will work together to address the CPM needs of an organization by providing them with best-in-class technology solutions. BlumShapiro will use its Microsoft partnership to deliver consulting services support in Business Intelligence, Microsoft SharePoint, Master Data Management, and cloud-based technologies.
Brian Renstrom, Consulting Partner with BlumShapiro said that, "The alliance between Tagetik and BlumShapiro is quite seamless because we do a great deal of consulting work in the ERP world and have expertise in streamlining processes in the office of finance. With Tagetik software we now have a toolset we can offer as a solution to complement the process consulting recommendations-which of course is a big advantage in today's marketplace, so there are many opportunities to help companies improve their performance management."
New England-based BlumShapiro at present is the largest regional accounting, tax, and business consulting firm serving customers from the manufacturing, distribution, retail, construction, healthcare, real estate and auto dealerships sector. Government clients of the company include municipalities, quasi-government entities, and state government departments.
