Phoenix, AZ, December 18, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Column5 Consulting, a global leader in Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) consulting, today announced a partnership with UBmatrix to provide XBRL solutions to customers of SAP BusinessObjects Planning & Consolidation (SAP BPC).
XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) facilitates the preparation, publishing and automatic exchange of financial statements – and provides greater accuracy, reliability and transparency in financial reporting. The US Securities and Exchange Commission, the FDIC, and a host of other regulators including the European Central Banking Supervisors have chosen to have companies report using XBRL for these reasons and to make financial reporting consistent across public companies and financial institutions.
Column5 is a leading consultancy in the implementation of SAP BPC, which provides organizations with a unified platform for planning, forecasting, and financial consolidation and reporting. UBmatrix provides a market leading software suite that enables the use of XBRL in the global enterprise. As a result of this partnership, Column5 consultants will be fully trained and able to implement XBRL reporting solutions for SAP BPC customers.
“Our partnership with UBmatrix enables us to offer a more complete financial reporting solution to our customers, especially publicly held companies who need to comply with regulatory requirements for external reporting,” stated David Den Boer, CEO of Column5. “The combination of their market leading software and our top consulting expertise in SAP financial reporting systems enables companies to reduce the cost of their reporting processes and have confidence in their results.”
”We are excited to be working with Column5 to help meet the needs of customers,” said Steve Levine, CMO of UBmatrix. “Our experience is that customers are more successful with their XBRL reporting initiatives when they work with a qualified partner who can help them get up to speed.”
