About the company

In June 2015, Manac was privatized by a consortium of investors, including the Caisse de depot et placement du Quebec, Fonds d’investissement québécois II s.e.c. and Investissement Quebec.

Createch experts were tasked with providing technical assistance for the implementation of the project and were instrumental in ensuring a smooth transfer of skills among the team members. As part of the project, Createch experts supported Manac in its first implementation of SAP Business Planning and Consolidation for the financial consolidation portion of the business.

The solution was chosen for the automation, reliability and control possibilities it offered in the financial consolidation process. The solution’s user-friendly interface and the ability to easily produce preset reports ensured a seamless transfer of information between the financial and business units.
