Prior to working with Spitfire Analytics, users were individually pulling data exports direct from the ERP for regular and ad-hoc reporting, duplicating effort and repeating a lot of manual processes to clean up the data.
Superdry have significantly improved their reporting timelines with the introduction of IBM® Planning Analytics. Data is now automatically loaded to a central IBM® Planning Analytics server for access and regular reporting is automated, including profit and loss, balance sheet and cashflow. Localised models have been moved off spreadsheets and into IBM® Planning Analytics for consistency of formulas, wide access across the finance function and transparency of data.
Working with Spitfire Analytics has led to:
– Time savings of 20%
– Greater insight into trial balance data
– Pain-free integration with Excel
