What our customers are saying
With our legacy planning solution, it used to take at least a day to complete our payroll planning and to update our budget with monthly actuals. Now, IBM Planning Analytics completes the same workload in just under 60 minutes, cutting loading times by 85 percent.

Working with IBM means that we will be much better able to match up our existing skills and resources with customer orders. Now, our sites will be able to track the expertise available across the whole business, and as soon as we receive a new order we can either move labor to where it is needed, or even move the project to the best site to satisfy the request.

Today, our employees can input the time they spend at a client site and log their expenses directly into IBM Planning Analytics. After a member of the HR team has approved the data, we can feed it into our payroll system and our budget model—repaying expenses more quickly, reducing effort for HR, and delivering more accurate insight into our costs.
