Budenheim opts for intelligent planning solution from Board International

Chemical specialist Budenheim aims for greater flexibility in planning and better control options by the finance department

Board International, a leading global provider of Intelligent Planning Solutions which help organizations to plan smarter, enabling actionable insights and better outcomes, implements its intelligent planning solution at Budenheim, one of the global leading companies for specialty chemicals headquartered in Germany. 

Planning at Budenheim is very complex and covers finance, production, sourcing and logistics. The previous solution was based on a business warehouse system with very precise structures, which increasingly proved to be too static for the challenges ahead. In a detailed selection process involving IT and business departments, Budenheim opted for Board's intelligent planning solution.

"Board convinced us during the execution and presentation of the demo case. The departments that will be working with the planning solution were impressed by its user-friendliness and wide range of functions. From an IT perspective, the high degree of innovation of the solution and the future-oriented product development made a strong case for Board," says Markus Garber, Vice President Information Technology at Budenheim.

As part of an initial project, Budenheim is setting up a global and integrated financial planning system in Board. The challenge here is to merge various source systems while simultaneously continuing to develop the planning process. After that, topics such as sustainability reporting and HR planning come onto the agenda. In doing so, Budenheim is establishing the Board platform as a central hub for reporting and planning. 

“We are delighted Board has been chosen to deliver on Budenheim’s transformative vision for planning,” said Ansgar Eickeler, Area General Manager DACH at Board. “Board’s selection by an innovative industrial company shows how the power of Intelligent Planning is the go-to choice for leading organizations seeking to plan smarter and drive better outcomes, as they transform vital business planning across finance and operations.”
