LUCCA, Italy, November 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Tagetik, a global provider of enterprise software solutions for Performance Management, Disclosure Management, Financial Governance and Business Intelligence, today announced that it has purchased the rights to distribute key finance organization benchmarks compiled by research and benchmarking firm, APQC (http://www.apqc.org).

  • Produce the annual budget in 14 fewer days;
