Hospital planning powered by Seneca


Successful product launch at K|M|S autumn congress


(Munich, 10/27/2017) On the 20th and 21st of October, the annual autumn congress of the Seneca partner K|M|S AG took place in Unterhaching. K|M|S is the leading provider of technology and knowledge management in German healthcare.


The attending professional audience of more than 180 people showed great interest in the hospital planning manager, which was newly developed by Seneca for K|M|S. This manager completes the software solution eisTIK® as a new module.


The pleasingly big positive response to the management accounting module for healthcare made by Seneca makes both partners very optimistic about the future. Especially since the K|M|S autumn meeting coincides with the starting signal for the immediate start of the eisTIK® planning manager powered by Seneca.

Foundation of managerial accounting work group

Seneca continues to establish itself in Hungarian managerial accounting circles

The interactive nature of the workshop quickly led to a gratifyingly dynamic discussion, in which each participant took the opportunity to a vigorous and active exchange of professional experiences and ideas.


The participants of the first event included Audi Hungaria Zrt., Autoliv Kft., BUSCH-HUNGARIA Kft., Delphi Hungary Kft., BPW-Hungária Kft., Dana Hungary Kft.,  Hirtenberger Automotive Safety Hungary Bt., IFUA Horváth & Partners Kft., iQor Global Services Hungary Kft., LUK Savaria Kft., Nemak Györ Kft., Rába Futómü Kft., Schott Hungary Kft. and the Seneca Business Software GmbH.

Seneca Controlling meets MS-Office©

Bridging the gap from controlling into the Office-world


(Munich, January 12, 2017) With the new Seneca software release, which was launched starting this year, the Seneca development team implemented this through popular demand of users.


In the future it will be very easy for Seneca users to integrate further areas of their company directly to their planning and reporting structures. The newly developed Seneca MS-Office©-integration makes an online-connection possible between Seneca Controlling and the classic Microsoft tools Excel, PowerPoint and Word, around the clock. 


Data collection, presentations and business plans made with the classic Office-tools normally require graphics, reports and analysis needs to be combined with highly elaborate and complex exports and inserts. Due to timely updates, adjustments are needed and formatting starts all over again. 


For Seneca users this is much more comfortable. With the Seneca MS-Office©-integration this process will notably be simplyfied. The Excel-Add-in is one of the tools Seneca users could use for data collection and the interaction between the Seneca database and the spreadsheet world. Diagram evaluation, heatmaps, and reports could directly be inserted into the presentation and text documents from the Seneca ressource manager. Eye catcher: when evaluations need to be changed, the user can update his data by mouseclick.


With the ability to transfer data effortlessly, to update and to write back and secure data, companies will be able to incorporate further employees, e.g.: sales to hitherto decentralized data acquisition, without sacrifying any secure data computation done in Seneca. The update results will return to the user upon request in both systems.
