Chugai Pharma Europe selects Board Solution for Integrated Planning

Monday, 31 May 2021 - Paris

Chugai in Europe brings novel therapies to patients in Europe with core therapy areas in oncology, immunology/rheumatology and haematology/haemophilia and has chosen the Board solution to replace Excel and thus considerably improve its integrated planning.

In Europe, Chugai wanted to be equipped with an agile tool to enhance its existing finance systems. Chugai has chosen the Board solution to support them in their budgeting and reporting for various business areas such as finance, sales, and human resources

The project is also taking place in an international context with five companies in three countries involved, including France, Great Britain, and Germany.

After discussions to understand the project's priorities and challenges, Chugai turned to Board to support them. With its all-in-one business intelligence platform, combining planning, forecasting and reporting capabilities, Board has retained the trust of the teams. For Mrs Zoe McGowan, Head of Finance Europe at Chugai Pharma Europe Ltd, the ergonomics, the administration of the platform, the autonomy of the users in the management of their reports, and the capacity to make the solution evolve were determining criteria in the choice of the solution.

« As a European Group of companies, it is essential we have an agile and dynamic planning system and Board was selected based on its ability to meet these requirements as well as providing a user-friendly environment for non-finance users. »  - Zoe McGowan – Head of Finance Europe – Chugai Pharma Europe Ltd
