In this current market overview, compare software for controlling or controllers on the basis of standardised programme presentations. Short definition: Controlling includes the planning, management and control of various company areas or operational processes. It is the control instrument for corporate management and serves to prepare and support the decision-making of the management.
The listed software supports the controller both in operative controlling and in strategic controlling. While operative controlling deals with the evaluation of quantified data and uses instruments such as budgeting, break-even analysis and investment calculation, strategic controlling is based on qualified data. Competitive analysis, benchmarking and product portfolio analysis, among others, are used here.
Controlling includes data from accounting or financial accounting, but also draws on other data sources. It includes the preparation of profitability calculations and the ongoing control of business transactions as one of the MIS systems. With a controlling system, profits and losses can be depicted as well as balance sheets or information on products and customers. Process optimisation is also the responsibility of the controller.
