Kantata Helps Teams Across the Globe at Chappuis Halder Work Together Better
Chappuis Halder & Co. is a leading international management consulting firm, dedicated to financial services. With offices in several locations in Europe, North America and Asia, they use Kantata to support visibility and cooperation among a far-flung team.
Previously, Chappuis Halder used several different systems to operate the business which, according to Catherine, “didn’t talk to each other.” Kantata was brought in to provide an end to end solution, one place where they could monitor each project from quote to cash, ensuring firm proposals feed into the forecast, and that invoices are accurate and timely.
According to Catherine Joly, Chief Operating Officer at Chappuis Halder, with Kantata in place, “we can now ensure we don’t leave money on the table.” Catherine says, “With Kantata, we can see what is happening across the organization. We don’t have to pick up the phone to find out. We can see where there is resource availability, and we can see where there is increased demand. This helps us to make better decisions.”
Chappuis Halder & Co. is a consulting firm (part of Capgemini Invent) that operates globally across Europe, Asia, and North America with around 200 consultants. CH & Co. specializes in management consulting for the financial services sector with a focus on projects relating to business development and innovation, operations, and risk control.
“We are now able to make better decisions in terms of matching capacity to demand – that has definitely been a tangible benefit.”

According to Catherine, “Thanks to Kantata, we have accurate forecasts three months ahead and we can see what that means for the business in terms of skills and capacity. We are able to put together the best team for each engagement.” That means the business can reduce revenue leakage that occurs when the right resources aren’t available for the right projects, as well as manage recruitment proactively.
Catherine said another big benefit of Kantata is that it makes it easier to share data with other stakeholders – business partners and clients. “We wanted to invest in a quality solution because we value being able to share accurate and up to date information on an ongoing basis with our partners.”
The transparency Kantata provides has also been popular with consultants and other users at Chappuis Halder. “Increasingly we find employees value having access to data on the company’s performance. There is a real thirst for that kind of information. It helps people to understand the value of their own contribution.”
