Berlin/Frankfurt am Main, 17.08.2020: With its cloud solution for driver-based control and scenario simulation in real time, Valsight impresses not only CFOs and controlling managers in well-known corporations, but also an important investor.
In the recently completed financing round, early-stage investor neosfer (formerly: main incubator), the development unit of Commerzbank Group, invested a seven-figure sum in the Berlin-based SaaS start-up.
With this investment, neosfer GmbH is supporting the start-up, which was founded in 2015, in its further growth and is also making its offering available to Commerzbank customers.
Since its founding in 2015, the Berlin-based start-up Valsight has evolved from the renowned Hasso Plattner Institute into a sought-after address for agile performance management. With its SaaS solution for driver-based planning, scenario simulations, and forecasting, Valsight has been able to win over customers such as Linde, Volkswagen, Siemens, Mercedes-Benz, Commerzbank, AIDA Cruises, Thalia, and DATEV.
With its simulation software, Valsight addresses the enormous challenges facing the controlling departments of many companies and corporations today. Sudden short-time work, unexpected production stoppages or fluctuating market prices: These factors, which are difficult to predict, can have an immense impact on financial planning and corporate management. Previously used methods and common business intelligence (BI) and planning software are not always up to this fast-moving market dynamic.
This is where Valsight comes in with its solution and offers companies the flexibility and transparency they need for agile and future-oriented corporate management and planning.
With its specialized simulation solution, Valsight makes financial planning, forecasting and simulation of what-if scenarios not only more transparent and flexible, but also significantly more agile and faster. This provides companies with valuable real-time insights and significantly accelerates planning and decision-making processes.
Carsten Schmitt, Head of Group Finance, Commerzbank:

At Commerzbank, we are therefore focusing on the consistent digitization of controlling processes, using intelligent software solutions such as Valsight, among other things.”
