MessageMedia Group provides easy and engaging global messaging solutions, helping businesses deliver exceptional communication with their customers.
They have over 65,000 business customers. Every year, they produce a budget for about a thousand of their customers, and the remainder in segments. This was done in Excel with only 2 people running the entire budget process with input from 15 regional sales managers. It was very cumbersome and difficult to consolidate.
MessageMedia wanted a solution that could change this. The solution needed to house large amounts of data, consolidate Excel files, update quickly, budget within a shorter timeframe, and facilitate a rolling forecast.
Read the case study to see how they achieved these and more with Workday Adaptive Planning and QMetrix:
- Plan using large datasets, and easily pull data and drill down
- Immediate results – able to calculate and see impacts “live”
- Time to complete the budget halved – plus the new ability to have a rolling forecast
Ross Kerr, Senior Management Accountant at MessageMedia says,
“Making the shift from Excel spreadsheets to Workday Adaptive Planning has been a game changer. Reports that were cumbersome can now be done with the click of a button. We can make changes live and see the impact of it straightaway. Our experience with QMetrix has been nothing but positive.”
