Transparency

Sustainable group controlling needs to be founded on reliable data. With LucaNet, it’s possible to drill every individual figure down to the posting document level in just a few clicks. This will give you maximum transparency across all your group companies.

Monthly reporting

In LucaNet, it’s easy to create ad-hoc reports or use data files (which you can generate at the press of a button) to provide investors with all the information they need on how their group companies are performing.
