Futuresense attends the EMEA OneStream Splash Conference in Madrid

One of a few thought leaders in the niche environment of Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) and the premier EPM service provider using multiple solutions, Futuresense takes every opportunity to develop the knowledge and expertise needed to help customers simplify their financial environments. This is one of the reasons we recently attended the OneStream Splash Annual User Conference and Partner Summit held in Madrid.

OneStream is positioned at the top end of the EPM market and their software provides a modern Corporate Performance Management solution that unifies and simplifies financial consolidation, planning, reporting, analytics and financial data quality for sophisticated organisations.

Deployed in the cloud or on-premise, OneStream XF is one of the first and only solutions that delivers corporate standards and controls, with the flexibility for business units to report and plan at additional levels of detail without impacting corporate standards – all through a single application.

Director Simon Jackson and Nicole Astfalck, Sales and Marketing Executive, flew the Futuresense flag at the Splash conference as a partner. The conference inspires, educates and connects finance and industry experts from around the globe, and offered a great week of learning and networking with nearly 400 OneStream customers, partners and OneStream experts.

The Futuresense team attended the many hands-on workshops, educational sessions and keynotes to learn as much as possible. They attended the partner summit expo, where they were given tools and ideas to generate leads and expand the sales funnel. They also had many opportunities to interact and network with many different types of OneStream users, partners and industry experts.

"Becoming a OneStream partner came at the right time and is in line with our vision to be the premium EPM services provider in South Africa. OneStream enables finance and IT professionals to ‘get back to business' by spending less time managing systems and integration and more time driving business performance – one of the main goals of Futuresense's services portfolio. Attending Splash Madrid was a great experience. We spent the week interacting with and learning from the best and the brightest industry leaders while also refining our technical skillsets, ensuring we can offer our customers the latest and best advice," says Nicole Astfalck, Marketing and Sales Executive at Futuresense.

"Digital transformation was a hot topic at Splash Madrid as finance leaders at organisations worldwide are seeking to streamline finance processes and leverage more of their data for strategic advantage. OneStream used the conference to demonstrate some upcoming enhancements to the platform and new XF MarketPlace solutions that will help finance teams become more efficient, forward-looking and predictive in their planning and analytics to provide deeper insights and decision-making capabilities across the enterprise," says Ricardo Rasche, managing director of EMEA for OneStream Software.

The OneStream XF MarketPlace features downloadable solutions that allow customers to easily extend the value of their CPM platform to quickly meet the changing needs of finance and operations.

OneStream was named to the 2019 Inc. 5000 as one of the top 700 fastest-growing companies in North America.
