Gründung einer Controlling-Arbeitsgruppe

Seneca etabliert sich weiter in ungarischen Controller-Kreisen


(München, 15. Mai 2017) Mit Hilfe des Menedzsment és Controlling Egyesület (MCE) wurde im April diesen Jahres die "Arbeitsgruppe Westungarischer Unternehmen" gegründet.


Hauptinitiatorin und Leiterin der Arbeitsgruppe ist Frau Nikoletta Biczó, Beraterin bei der Seneca Business Software GmbH. Gastgeberin der Auftaktveranstaltung am 12. April 2017 war die BPW-Hungária Kft. in Szombately, Ungarn.


Die erste Sitzung der Arbeitsgruppe startete mit zwei hochkarätigen Vorträgen von István Bánfalvi und Judit Reményi, beide Leiter der Finanz- und Controlling-Abteilung der BPW-Hungária Kft. Als Hauptthema der ersten Zusammenkunft wählte die Arbeitsgruppe die "Kapazitätsplanung und Ressourcennutzung in einem volatilen Umfeld", wie es in den heutigen Märkten und Unternehmungen Realität ist.


Der interaktive Charakter des Workshops führte rasch zu einer erfreulich dynamischen Diskussion, bei der jeder Teilnehmer die Gelegenheit wahrnahm zum regen und konstruktiven Austausch fachlicher Erfahrungen und Ansichten.


Zu den Teilnehmern dieser ersten Veranstaltung zählten 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. und die 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.
