about us

As accountants ourselves, we have lived through the nightmare of trying to use spreadsheets to manage the performance of a business and plan the future.

So you can be confident in our ability to understand the challenges that you are facing - we've been there, done that.

InfoCat's Planning Analytics TM1 team is one of the most knowledgeable in Europe, with over 80 man years' experience of implementing TM1. All of the consulting team are dedicated to delivering Planning Analytics TM1 solutions.

Although our main area of specialisation is Planning Analytics TM1, we also support the other financial performance management tools including Controller and Cognos Disclosure Management (CDM).
