ITE Group reaps the benefits of accelerated planning and improved collaboration

 ITE Group thrives on a global stage. The conference and trade exhibition planner organises events in 15 countries with staff located in 27 offices worldwide. As operations grew, relying on Excel spreadsheets became unrealistic. ITE Group needed a performance management solution that handles data involving multiple regional offices, agencies, and currencies. Adaptive Planning, part of the Adaptive Suite, delivered that scalability. Consolidating data, such as price assumptions and currency rates, took minutes instead of days. Automation of processes and other reporting features delivered immediate value to the organisation, empowering ITE Group to expand its reach to emerging global markets.

Challenges

  • Relied on spreadsheets to manage global budget process
  • Budget process took three to four months on average
  • Difficult to conduct management reporting, re-forecast, or easily share reports

Results

  • Implemented in less than two months and rolled out to 30 users
  • Improved access to data better identifies potential issues
  • Saved time on consolidation processes

“After comparing the different options, Adaptive provided a better solution with better support, the ability for us to manage the application despite different levels of IT support across our regional offices, meant that we were self reliant. In addition, the fact that you could log-in from anywhere via the internet was a big selling point.”
