Apliqo and Hendricks, Rost & Cie join forces to transform FP&A in Germany

HRCIE and Apliqo join forces to transform FP&A in Germany

Here at Apliqo, we thrive on collaborations with like-minded companies that not only share our vision in terms of transforming financial planning and analytics, but that can offer unique perspectives and advantages to help clients get more out of their data. The bare bones of the technology can only get you so far, and it requires a thoughtful and sophisticated implementation journey to truly maximise the potential of what is possible.

It’s for this reason that we are so excited to announce that we have signed a new partnership agreement with Hendricks, Rost & CIE (HRCIE), one of the market’s leading players in the business intelligence industry. They are a German company with over 25 years of experience working with IBM Planning Analytics, working to implement high-quality business intelligence solutions for corporate management teams. Through their excellent work, they’ve garnered a world-class reputation among their peers and maintain very high standards as they seek to empower their clients, helping them better understand their data and its implications.

Apliqo CEO Daniele Tedesco iterated the importance of this partnership for the company’s expansion into the German market when he said the following:

“Our growth should always be based on maximum quality and customer satisfaction. We are therefore very selective when choosing our partners. With our colleagues at HRCIE, we have been able to feel this shared spirit and aspiration and have come to know extraordinarily competent people from both a technical and professional perspective.”

Business is about people at the end of the day, and we are confident that HRCIE embodies a customer-first philosophy – making them the sort of company that can take our vision and run with it, expanding horizons and growing the impact of the technology that we are building. In fact, they will be the very first IBM business partner to sell and implement the Apliqo UX suite as part of their offering.  Frank Hendricks, CEO and founder of HRCIE said:

“This is where the world’s best OLAP platform TM1 meets the technologically leading front-end Apliqo UX. Together with HRCIE’s 30 years of BI experience, we will be able to offer our customers fantastic solutions.”

In addition to Apliqo UX, HRCIE will also be introducing some other Apliqo products such as Apliqo FPM and Apliqo C&C to their clients – helping their clients to streamline these key financial and operational processes with best-in-class technology. By taking the entire product suite to market, we hope that their clients can achieve a comprehensive transformation of their FP&A activities – leading to stronger results, better decisions, and more sophisticated implementations.

We are incredibly excited to have the HRCIE team on board and we can’t wait to see what is possible by joining forces!
