This time around, a flawless annual report

The software for creating your annual report and handling disclosure management

The SmartNotes product from our partner, AMANA consulting GmbH, is the perfect tool for preparing your financial and annual reports. Combine the benefits of two market leaders and you’ll have a perfect, comprehensive solution for preparing annual reports that are ready to print. All the aspects of preparing consolidated financial statements are covered, from consolidation in LucaNet to the final generation of the report.

The two systems have one thing in common: ease of use. Professionals can do everything by themselves. Using an easily customizable import process, SmartNotes transfers the base data from LucaNet and updates all tables, figures in running text, and even diagrams - showing you exactly which figures have changed since the last data import. A workflow that can be tailored to your needs allows you to integrate a reliable check principle, with all changes being displayed transparently and logged in a full audit trail.
