Sun Chemical Upgrades BPM Solution

Fort Lee, N.J.-based Sun Chemical Corp. recently upgraded its business performance management (BPM)
solution to the Cartesis Magnitude BPM solution supplied by Paris-based Cartesis. The printing inks
and coatings manufacturer decided to implement the updated version to better streamline and
automate its financial reporting, consolidation and planning processes.

“Cartesis Magnitude allows Sun Chemical to collect, consolidate and deliver more data
faster,” according to Jim Kelly, manager, financial reporting and analysis, Sun Chemical. Kelly
added that the new solution uses automated control features to validate data before Sun Chemical
receives it, and then stores it in a single repository.
