The COMPIRICUS Alternative Investment Cockpit is a solution based on SAP Treasury & Risk Management (TRM), with which you can manage, control and report your heterogeneous capital investments in alternative assets and private equity in the one uniform interface.
The following processes can be mapped with the COMPIRICUS solution for alternative assets and private equities:

Reporting as from the investment decision right through to the return on the capital investment.
The view of the extensive master data management also covers information on underlyings, securities as well as balance sheet data and the distribution of the ownership shares.

The solution integrated in the SAP-ERP system and, in particular, with SAP FAM features the following functionalities:
administration of all relevant master data, shareholding structures, underlyings and balance sheet data in a uniform interface,
complete, functional support as from the investment decision through to the return on capital, including a flexible allocation of a return flow in individual components affecting stock and net income,

administration of commitments as additional inventory components,
complete integration in the SAP standard functionality of SAP FI or SAP CM, as well as in the regulatory reporting if required.

A leap in know-how
As a SAP parter we have known SAP FAM since its creation and, as such, more or less inside and out. Moreover, we know the sector and its needs; on the one hand due to longstanding collaboration with renowned clients and, on the other, since some of our colleagues are themselves experts in this area.
In any case for you this means: Qualified advice, lean projects and, in the end, the certainty of a high-level, functional and stable solution with which you can work.
