In 1989 all of Germany celebrated the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. 2019 is also an anniversary year for CoPlanner! Our company has been in existence for over thirty years and still has great plans for the future.

Graz, September 30, 2019 - The topics of planning and analysis have been the focus of CoPlanner Software & Consulting GmbH for more than 30 years now. CoPlanner was founded in 1989 by Dr. Walter Frühwirt founded and has earned a firm place in the market. Dr. Carsten Bange, CEO of BARC: "CoPlanner Software and Consulting GmbH is the oldest owner-managed business intelligence and corporate performance management software company in German-speaking countries."

The current content-related requirements were already relevant in 1989: Implementation of actual analyzes, planning and budgeting, forecasting, simulations, management and financial reporting, integration of company parts, consolidation with foreign currencies and portable applications - all this had already been demanded by customers in 1989 , Increased data volumes and flexibility requirements for additions, adjustments and extensions of individual models. The development of information technology today enables solutions that seemed impossible at the time. When you worked on these challenges with 286 IBM-AT PCs thirty years ago, today we are talking about controlling in the cloud.

For 30 years, CoPlanner has successfully mastered the ups and downs of the market. Without Dr. Walter Frühwirt as founder and driving force would have been unthinkable. To celebrate the thirtieth anniversary, the CoPlanner team has come together for the occasion at Schloss Kapfenstein in beautiful Styria. Together they shed light on the past and future of the company.

At the end of the year, the anniversary version CoPlanner 10 will be released, giving intelligent controlling an innovative impetus. Integrated planning from the cloud, certified legal consolidation and artificial intelligence (AI) are topical issues and already part of our integrated software solution. Optional standard enhancements, for example for cost accounting, IFRS 16, contract management or personnel planning complete the existing solution in the modular system.
