Webinar: 5 ways how your FP&A team can improve Cost Planning Processes

29/10/2020 | 12u30-13u15

Cost Budgets and Cost Allocations are usually time-consuming for FP&A teams and involve a lot of stakeholders. Quite often it becomes a trade-off between Cost Transparency and complexity of Cost Planning Processes.

With Cost Pressure going up, Leadership teams ask FP&A teams for more analysis on Cost efficiency and ways to reduce Costs.

Is your FP&A team also looking for ways to make Cost Budgets more controllable but keep them simple? Would you like to know how to survive the Cost Pressure at all times, but not at all costs?

Join the Numlix webinar and learn:

  • How to reduce time of gathering Cost Budgets from different stakeholders
  • How to measure and improve Cost Efficiency
    When specific Cost Planning methodologies (like Zero-Based Budgeting and Activity-Based Costing) add value and when generate complexity
  • How to choose right drivers for Cost Allocation
  • How Approval Process will make your Cost Budgets more controllable and not just add to “bureaucracy”.

and … all this with the help of Connected Planning platform called Anaplan.

Webinar: How your FP&A team can reduce both Time & Cost of your Budget process

For most organizations Budget Process takes too long. In average it takes 4-5 months per year with 60% of organization directly involved into Planning process. FP&A Teams work extra hard in times of Budget Process. Business teams usually perceive it as a painful yearly event which requires a lot of effort and yields disproportionally less value.

Why is this happening?

Budget Process, historically designed to generate Budgets, is used today to solve several quite different business planning needs:

Annual Planning, Target Setting, Forecasting and sometimes even Strategic Planning and Sales & Operations Planning.

As a consequence, Budget Process becomes an expensive, time-consuming event, failing to deliver a desired output.

In this Numlix webinar you learn:
  • What the 3 main reasons are why Budget Process takes excessive time
  • How best-in-class Budget Process Timeline looks like
  • How to calculate Total Cost of your Budget Process and reduce it
  • How Connecting Planning Platform called Anaplan can accelerate Planning Processes for your FP&A team.

.. and make Budget Process a “non-event” for your organization!
