Why do I need Helu?

Helu enables you to manage your business in a KPI-driven way. By integrating live DATEV data and the ability to upload business data from other tools, you automate your controlling, financial planning and financial analysis across all your teams.

What is a FP&A Software?

FP&A stands for Financial Planning and Analysis. It refers to the systematic analysis of relevant corporate data from different areas such as finance, marketing and accounting. This process is used to prepare management and investor reports, cost center analyses and financial planning. With the help of specific FP&A software, planning scenarios can be created that support risk management and enable efficient strategic corporate management. FP&A contributes significantly to the transparency of costs and growth of your company.

What can Helu do to support my team and myself?
  • Scaling challenge: as your business grows and the number of employees increases, so does the complexity of financial management. Helu eases this transition by enabling efficient financial planning and keeping the most up-to-date data at your fingertips.
  • Cost center complexity: Implementing and managing new cost centers can be a difficult task. Helu takes this burden off your shoulders by automating the relevant processes and providing your department managers with the data they need to ensure full transparency.
  • Inefficient management reporting: Preparing reports for management and investors can be time-consuming and tedious. Helu simplifies these processes and helps you put together meaningful reports.
  • Collaboration with tax advisors: Continuously receiving necessary and up-to-date data from your tax advisor can be time-consuming. Helu provides independent live access to this important information, which makes working with your tax advisor much easier.
  • Change of Personnel: Personnel changes can often lead to rearrangements and new setups of processes. With Helu, all established processes remain unaffected, enabling a smooth transition despite staff transitions.
  • Planning future scenarios: Collaboratively creating financial plans and mapping future scenarios often becomes a challenge when more stakeholders are involved in the process.  Helu provides you with valuable support in creating and visualizing such scenarios to give you a clear picture of how your business is likely to evolve.
