As digital transformation reshapes the business world, the challenge for today’s leaders is to be able to make fast, data-driven decisions with speed and agility, leveraging technologies to set their businesses up for success.
Complexity and change have outgrown and outpaced siloed systems and static planning. Competitive advantage derives from connecting insights and plans to decisions and results going forward, and to match resources with strategy, streamlining the business budgeting processes and reacting with agility and efficiency.
The business-as-usual budgeting process, traditional in inputs and standard in approach is no longer up to the task.
Lánluas has developed strategic partnerships with best-of-breed global vendors to underpin our integrated planning solutions.
Integrated Business Planning – The holy grail of decision making
As markets become increasingly competitive, success is dependent on the agility of businesses: their ability to react quickly and make fast, effective decisions. But when faced with the task of planning complex and often global multilevel processes, organisations typically find themselves with disconnections between strategy, finance and operations.
The result is a mountain of spreadsheet-based plans, which are created independently by different departments without visibility of their impact on the rest of the business, compromising the company’s ability to achieve its goals.
Lánluas’ team of business analysts and process champions will help to drive the best solution for your business. Our functional expertise sets us apart: We have a deep understanding of best practice processes and can align this to your legacy or TechnologyOne environment as required.
Integrated business planning solutions driven by Lánluas will help to drive visibility, accuracy and efficiency, offering a flexible and scalable base for unified strategic planning, budgeting.
Lánluas’ planning, budgeting and forecasting partners
Board International – Integrated Planning and Reporting
Lánluas Consulting in collaboration with Board offers a modern planning software that integrates strategic, financial and operational planning, enabling full control of performance across the organisation and revolutionising decision making.
Unlike spreadsheets, Board’s multidimensional planning environment is based on a single shared data repository and offers data validation, workflow, enterprise-class security, audit trail and versioning capabilities. This enhances the control and efficiency of the entire planning process – making it fully reliable in terms of results and significantly less onerous in time and resources. In this way, Board enables an integrated business planning approach.
Make your planning agile with Lánluas and Board’s dynamic data model
The software offers the ability to directly modify the data model during the planning or forecasting process, throughout the entire integrated business planning process flow. A new business unit, a new product, a new market or a different investment can be inserted in a controlled way during a planning cycle, simulating the effect of a new scenario on the whole business model. Furthermore, structures and relationships can be changed at runtime, providing unparalleled flexibility in building and maintaining any planning application.
Plan and analyse in real time
In-memory technology delivers outstanding performance in aggregating, spreading and running calculations on large data sets with complex business models and thousands of users. All changes to data are automatically spread across dimensions and hierarchies, providing an instant picture of the overall impact of any single variation.
Based on the same unified metadata layer, all the applications, reports and analyses are updated in real time, maintaining a single version of the truth across the entire Board environment and creating a fully integrated planning supply chain.
Take advantage of cutting-edge data entry capabilities
A powerful set of advanced features provide unparalleled flexibility and effectiveness for data entry processes, while ensuring full data reliability.
Create sophisticated business rules without coding
The planning software procedures engine allows users to effectively model key business processes by easily configuring a set of prebuilt rules – with all the necessary operations to implement company-wide planning, forecasting and simulation applications. This delivers a truly integrated business management approach and helps to drive businesses towards a digital office of finance.
Manage unlimited scenarios and versions
The software enables the generation of unlimited plan versions and scenarios, such as operating plans and financial plans, making it easy to track the evolution of forecasts and plans over time and to compare them with results.
These budgeting and forecasting tools and financial forecasting software make it easier than ever for business users to produce powerful forecasts and insightful analyses to accelerate the decision-making process.
We are delighted to have Lánluas as our latest partner to service and grow our client base.
