"Our new Progressive CFO track, which is based on the highly positive response we've received from the Progressive CFOTM monthly webinar series launched earlier this year, includes sessions on corporate data governance, enterprise-wide integrated reporting and the impact of technology innovation on the business.

"Two years ago, we presented key points of the software implementation and the resulting improvements in our consolidation and reporting processes. This year we will showcase our transition to Tagetik 5, the benefits gained in our 2015 half-year consolidation, and the advantages we expect from accessing Tagetik from all mobile devices through a secured web access connection," said Thierry De Taeye, vice president of group accounting and controlling at Mersen.
"Tagetik solutions continue to take finance to the next level," said Marco Pierallini, Tagetik co-CEO. "This conference will help attendees understand how Tagetik 5 features and enhancements - such as easy-to-use dashboards, self-service data visualization, and simpler user experiences -- can take their financial processes to an even higher level and bring new financial insight to senior executives."
To conclude the conference, Tagetik is hosting a special bike ride for attendees. Led by Davide Cassani, coach of Italy's national cycling team, the 65KM ride will loop cyclists through the hills around Lucca.
