Fast Forward: SAP Business Planning and Consolidation Accelerates Performance at IDEXX
Although the SAP Business Planning and Consolidation at IDEXX was meeting the company’s functional and business requirements, there was substantial room for improvement. Their SAP solution was experiencing less than ideal performance. In turn, this led to a slower user adoption rate. As IDEXX set out to migrate to SAP BPC SP011, it was critical to identify and remedy the root causes leading to its performance bottlenecks.
IDEXX called upon TruQua to assist with the deployment of automated performance testing during an upgrade to SAP BPC 10.1. In addition, TruQua initiated a load runner training session with IDEXX’s IT and Business Analysts to help alleviate performance issues moving forward.
The SAP Business Planning and Consolidation (SAP BPC) application delivers planning, budgeting, forecasting, and financial consolidation capabilities. This functionality makes it possible to easily adjust plans and forecasts, speed up budget and closing cycles, and ensure compliance with financial reporting standards.
Since the inception of TruQua’s collaboration, IDEXX’s BPC system has achieved greater usability, transparency, and a reduced TCO. These improvements have translated to a faster month-end closing process, performance boosts in reporting and data accuracy, and a reduction in cycle times for budgeting, forecasting, and consolidating actuals.
