WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"We had several failed attempts over a multi-year period in delivering a cohesive forecasting solution across the company. The Wysent team took the time to understand the challenges and prior failures and then architected a solution that met all our goals from functionality to minimized implementation and maintenance costs. The solution along with their partnership during the implementation and testing phases paved the path to our ultimate success."

SUCCESS STORY: Dynamic Forecasting
FORTUNE 500 I GLOBAL CONSUMER PRODUCTS
With 43 disparate markets across the globe, we needed to archtect a solution that had local flexibility in the context of a global model. Key functional requirements included: ability to plan at user defined levels of the hierarchies and distribute down, ability to define drivers at the local level and below, ability to define Business Units per Market, up to 40 versions of the plan per month, complex calculations to track key factors of sales, integration with existing core SAP BW systems, end user intuitive and Excel like response times. A cohesive and distributed essbase based architecture was designed and developed to meet all functionality as well as the goal to minimize support costs for all solution components.
