Sunrider International (“Sunrider”), a global firm with thousands of franchise stores and tens of thousands of distributors internationally, had a very detailed spreadsheet model with multi-currency, multiple roll ups, and reporting needs. This process was extremely time-consuming, cumbersome, and prone to errors. These obstacles impeded Sunrider from the needed visibility into their financial planning process. By implementing Oracle Hyperion Planning and Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) in parallel enabled Sunride to streamline both processes to reduce unnecessary time of gathering data, reconciliations, and the creation of reports.

The University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS) was trapped using a financial system that was not intended for budgeting purposes. They were using an Excel-based process that required loading budgets that were created in Excel, and resulted in a loss of budgeting details between various departments as this information was only provided to their finance department. In response to these challenges, UPHS implemented a comprehensive Oracle Hyperion Planning/Essbase/Reports/Web Analysis process for collecting, consolidating and reporting on budget data through an interactive dashboard process.

Horizon Lines, a national shipping company, found themselves in a similar predicament as other companies – they were utilizing an older, unsupported version of Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) for their planning and budgeting processes. They looked to Linium to help them understand the necessary effort to upgrade to the most current version and define a roadmap that would allow them to take advantage of the new functionality. By upgrading, Horizon was able to eliminate inefficiencies and redundancies, and most importantly, position them for future growth.
