Bayer engaged MindStream resources to design and build this project. The budget process begins by collecting Cost Center budget inputs in SAP and moving that information into Hyperion Planning. Volume information is received from Product Supply via web forms. These volumes will serve as the base of the budget. Excel Templates were created by the FP&A group and distributed to the Plants to collect the proposed standards for the coming year. Once the standards are collected and input into Hyperion Planning the Revenue projections are entered and the system calculates much of the income statement. The rest of the costs are input by Brand or input as a whole and allocated to the Brands.

Solution Benefits:

  • Streamlined the Income Statement budget process
  • Increased the efficiency of Workforce Planning and Budgeting
  • Decreased time to Forecast and Yearly Calendarizations
  • Increased the analytic capabilities of the FP&A team PeopleSoft
