29 January 2020 4 min. read

OneStream, a provider of financial performance management solutions, has elevated Agium EPM to Diamond partner level. 

The recognition sees Agium EPM, a Netherlands-based consulting firm dedicated to the enterprise performance management (EPM) segment, become one of only two consultancies to have been awarded this partnership level in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.

Since founding over 20 years ago, Agium EPM has built a strong track record in the Benelux and across Europe with services including corporate consolidation, financial reporting, data integration, financial planning and business intelligence solutions. To date, the consultancy has served over 300 customers, delivering over 700 projects in the process. 

When OneStream launched in the United States in 2010, Agium EPM rapidly took note of its edge in the EPM space. Deployed via the cloud or on-premise, OneStream’s CPM solution allows organisations to modernise and digitise their finance function, by among others simplifying and streamlining financial consolidation, planning, reporting, analytics and financial data quality. 

OneStream elevates Agium EPM to its new top partner rankPascal Walk, formerly a consultant at PwC, is managing partner at Agium EPM. He said that the recognition is “big news” for the firm, further stating; “Couldn't be more proud of this achievement and of our team!” He recalls how Agium EPM was one of the first consultancies in Europe to adopt the software, adding that this front running position has enabled the firm to stay ahead of its game. 

From pioneers to leaders

“When we started our partnership with OneStream only a few European companies were using it. Then, it really felt like pioneering. Nowadays, they are recognised as the next-generation EPM solution and is being used by many large corporations in EMEA. We don’t have to explain the benefits anymore. Our in-depth knowledge we gained during our partnership, now enables us to build specific OneStream solutions that all users can benefit from.” 

Lauded by Gartner as a Visionary in the Cloud Financial Planning and Analysis landscape, OneStream is today used by corporates globally such as KLM, Sharp, Toyota, Takeaway and UPS, as well as dozens of mid-sized businesses. 

Following continued growth of its partner ecosystem, OneStream at the start of this year expanded its partner ranks with a new level; Diamond, on top of the existing Platinum, Gold and Silver levels. According to OneStream, “The Diamond level represents extensive knowledge and implementation experience with OneStream’s SmartCPM platform.” 

Building on Agium EPM’s OneStream track record – it has over 70 OneStream projects under its belt at more than 40 companies in 10 countries – the Dutch consultancy has now been lifted into the new ranks, alongside HollandParker, a North American consulting firm that exclusively implements OneStream. Agium EPM meanwhile also supports system roll-outs from CXO Software and Oracle.

Commenting on the upgraded partner status, Martijn van Bommel, Director Sales and Business Development at Agium EPM, said, “We are proud to have introduced the platform to some of Europe’s leading companies. The Diamond status confirms our strong long-lasting relationship with OneStream. We continue our joint mission to service the modern office of finance with a 100% customer success rate.” 

Based in Hoofdorp, a city just outside of Dutch capital Amsterdam, Agium EPM employs around 130 consultants, of which 25 consultants are trained in OneStream. 

Other top consulting partners of OneStream are Accenture, Grant Thornton and PwC – the trio are a global implementation partner. Consultancies with Diamond status include Finext and Sonum, while those in the Platinum and Gold band include MorganFranklin Consulting, GBI Consulting, Perficient and The Hackett Group. The likes of Alvarez & Marsal, BearingPoint, Guidehouse, Huron, Satriun and Vetical Edge Consulting are Silver partners.
