Customer

The world-wide leader in manufacturing and distributing animal health products going from vaccines and parasiticides, to diagnostics and medicinal feed additives. They market their products in approximately 45 countries, and sell them in more than 100 countries.

Challenges

Due to strong growth in the last couple of years, the consolidation of financial figures was becoming more and more challenging for the finance organization. Every forecast and budget cycle numbers from all 20+ sites worldwide needed to be collected and all updates were done in Excel and shared via email. This took a lot of time and effort to reconcile so there was a high need do revise this approach.

Solution

bluecrux supported in the implementation of Anaplan: one online platform for all site managers to submit their forecasts and comments. Here, the consolidation was fully automated and it enabled version management for each forecast cycle, allowing easy comparison. Site managers now had immediate access to their own data through selective user access. On top, this seemed to be the best tailored solution of external purchasing.

Results

Excels have become redundant in consolidation and e-mail traffic got reduced strongly

FP&A managers need to spend less time collecting and consolidating data

Clear dashboards now fully support financial analysis
