  • 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.

  • Solutions

    • 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
  • Results

    Bluecrux supported in the implementation of Anaplan: one online platform for all site managers to submit their forecasts and comments. ​

    Consolidation of forecast and budget was fully automated with version management enabled for each forecast cycle, allowing easy comparison. ​

    Site managers now have immediate access to their own data through selective user access.
