KAPCON Managementberatung GmbH started its work in January 2004. The original members were the managing directors Winfried Eickhoff and Gerd Schmidt as well as the managers Norbert Nischler, Matthias Schock and Oliver Voges. This experienced and effective team had worked closely with each other for Arthur Andersen Managementberatung GmbH already. After a short episode with Heaven 21 AG they came to the conclusion in December 2003 to continue the business together by the motto „group controlling and group consolidation put in a nutshell“. For this they have access to a competent network of specialists to be able to respond to wide-ranging questions.
The excellent customer contact of the managing directors in combination with direct access to the development division of SAP AG brought about success very quickly. In the following 10 years manifold projects have been realized with emphasis on projects regarding the implementation of consolidation systems. Those included for example such for actual data, budget data and forecast data according to HGB/BilMoG, US-GAAP and IFRS combined with subsequent support. Our customers operate in many different branches covering mechanical and plant engineering, medical technology as well as metal processing, energy provision, automotive supply and banking.
This multifaceted expert knowledge and the claim to commit ourselves to the individual customer wishes and conditions lead to our high consulting quality. By regularly attending internal and external trainings and conventions in the field of group accounting and controlling our consultants are always up-to-date and able to identify future problems at an early stage. The close contact with the SAP AG development department deriving from a development cooperation between SAP AG and Arthur Andersen Managementberatung GmbH regarding the development of SAP R/3 EC-CS, contribute to the efficient and fast way of solving software problems, particularly regarding implementation projects.
The 10th business year of KAPCON Managementberatung GmbH was overshadowed by the sudden and unexpected death of the founding member and managing director Winfried Eickhoff on March, 27th, 2013. However, we managed a reconstruction and realignment in relatively short time. The appointment of Norbert Nischler and Oliver Voges as managing directors had been initiated to continue the business as intended by the deceased founding member. The new strategy of the KAPCON Managementberatung GmbH is characterized by the expansion of the consulting and product portfolio resulting in a staff expansion. While during the past 10 years the main focus had been on the consolidation systems SAP R/3 EC-CS and SAP SEM-BCS, now systems with integrated planning solutions like SAP BPC or Tagetik are supposed to expand the range of services offered. The increased use of remote access reduces the travelling of the consultants and therefore the consulting costs as well. In addition, a prompt support can be ensured at all times.
As our clients have contributed in a crucial way to our success we would like to thank them sincerely for their confidence during the past 10 years. We ensure you that we will continue to dedicate our whole attention to your wishes and requirements regarding a future-oriented group accounting including optimized processes. Furthermore we would also like to thank our former colleagues and our freelancers for the successful collaboration and hope for a good cooperation in the future as well.
