Further Information

After the reference to the enterpise system is available, continuous and intrayear budget monitoring is possible in Lovion INVEST. The planned measures of the current year can be compared to the budget. The outflow of funds can be displayed for each month.

By linking the strategic planning with the actual project development and transmitting costs for the intrayear, Lovion INVEST becomes a central managing tool for technical and economical business processes for utility companies and network providers.

Time Slices

Planning costs can be divided into time slices by sorting process objects according to their contracts. As a result, the costs are displyed for each year. The new function creates time slices based on the defined time interval and differentiates between estimated, planned and actual costs. This means that individual or numerous projects can be distinctly viewed and evaluated for each year.


Lovion INVEST incorporates a SAP-Integration for continuously transmitting costs. Contractual data is regularly and automatically synchronised at night. Next to the automatic reading function, the data of individual process objects can also be queried at all times. Depending on the requirements, the information is displayed down to the cost type level.

Generic Cost Overviews and Diagrams

Different views and diagrams can be used to display budgets and costs for defined time intervals. For this purpose, generic overvies of selected process objects are created. By using reports or filters, individual divisions, cost points or types of measure can viewed.
