Leading online printing service, selects Board to transform integrated business planning.

Board International, the number one Decision-Making Platform provider, announces today that leading online printing service, Pixartprinting has chosen Board to create an integrated planning environment covering Strategic Planning, Budgeting, Forecasting, Capex Planning, and Management of Financial Close. Pixartprinting innovatively combines printing and e-commerce services and is one of the industry leaders, completing 12,000 printing operations each day.

“We believe that implementing Board in the company will allow us to manage the Strategic Planning, Budgeting, Forecasting, Capex Planning, and Financial Close management processes in an integrated and collaborative way. This will limit the use of Excel and free up more time for qualitative analysis of the data. It will also lead to greater and better interaction between sales and production, guaranteeing the consistency, timeliness, and usability of the data: an essential support for decision-making,” said Pixartprinting’s Head of FP&A, Federica Da Deppo.

Pixartprinting used to handle Strategic Planning, Budgeting, and Forecasting processes in Excel. While this approach suited historical business requirements, a dedicated Corporate Performance Management (CPM) platform was needed to tackle new competitive market challenges The introduction of Board’s Decision-Making Platform will free-up the Pixartprinting  from the restrictions and rigidities of Excel and provide reliable and timely information to managers. Existing planning and forecasting processes will be channelled into stable, orderly structures, overcoming the uncertainties caused by Excel and enhancing cooperation between departments. The transformation and integration of Planning and Analytics will also reduce the workload typically associated with Excel-based activities, freeing up analysts to improve the quality of the data rather than prepare it.

The simultaneous change of the ERP system in some of the Group’s companies also requires the old monthly Management Reporting System (handled in Excel) to be replaced with a more robust solution. Board will allow consolidated Group reports to be created with ease, regardless of the new ERP migration.

We are very happy to be able to strategically support Pixarprinting's digital transformation”, said Mauro Bertoletti, General Manager Southern Europe. "The company was looking to achieve greater efficiency in critical processes, as well as greater quality in the decision-making process. Board will contribute to achieving these objectives thanks to the pervasiveness and native flexibility of the platform, providing a single collaborative work tool for numerous business processes and users performing different functions.”
