Strategically align, integrate and accelerate workforce planning

Workforce planning is essential to realize your strategic goals. It needs to be aligned with the business strategy. Increasing efficiency in workforce planning supports creating strategic added value in overall planning.

Link personnel planning directly with your Financial budget

In many industries personnel costs and wages are one the biggest costs. Decent workforce planning and direct integration with your financial budget is of utmost importance. Immediately visualize the impact of changing workforce in your P&L. With demographic changes and diversification of work models, HR analysis and planning are steadily gaining in importance.

In both centralized and decentralized planning, company-critical personnel data often circulates in Excel spreadsheets. The manual data processing results in a high expenditure of time and money. In addition, it is neither audit-proof nor integrated into corporate planning. The lack of integration quickly leads to inconsistent data sets causing confusion, errors, and additional work.

Accelerate bottom-up planning at the lowest level and seamlessly report at enterprise-wide level

A single version of truth for all your data is the first step to more accurate planning. Businesses leverage the bottom-up approach in an effort to produce the most comprehensive budget plan for all departments, resources, and employees. The approach gathers input from all members of the business and allots a certain dollar value to each department that is appropriate for their business needs. As a result of this inclusive approach to budgeting, every aspect of business is considered equally as the budgeting plan is created.

Thanks to predefined logic models, data is standardized and can be directly compared. This saves you a lot of time on personnel planning. At the same time, there is the necessary flexibility to adapt the planning model to your specific business requirements – without changing the business logic.
