Brussels Airlines Chooses Anaplan for Heightened Financial Planning and Analysis

Anaplan’s flexible, in-memory platform selected to replace legacy spreadsheet system- element61 selected as Implementation Partner

Brussels Airlines, the Belgian airline offering the widest choice of
flights to and from its base at Brussels Airport, has selected Anaplan
to boost its financial planning and analysis (FP&A) strategy.
Brussels Airlines, which experienced record passenger growth in April 2014, selected Anaplan over legacy software vendors to replace its spreadsheet-based FP&A processes.

With
Anaplan’s cloud-based, in-memory platform Brussels Airlines can get
insights on product planning and allocation, cost planning, and capital
expenditures. The airline will leverage Anaplan to determine passenger
revenue allocation to flight numbers in real-time. The Belgian company
can also more accurately forecast future demand, and adjust plans on the
fly to account for personnel costs and functional costs.

"Our
business users are very enthusiastic about using Anaplan, as it is the
only platform capable of handling the operational parameters and
operational data used in our planning processes,” said Vanessa Rentiers,
Vice President of Controlling and Business Intelligence, Brussels
Airlines. "As a modern company, we must be able to act quickly, which
means we need flexible tools that are natural to use throughout the
organization. Anaplan will play an important role in our concerted
effort to improve financial and operating results stemming from our
performance improvement plan.

Anaplan’s cloud-based platform is built on the patented, in-memory HyperBlock™
data engine delivering unparalleled immediacy, flexibility and scale.
Anaplan unifies data from across the organization in a secure cloud/SaaS
platform and interconnects plans to deliver unprecedented trust and
visibility into the planning process.

"With Anaplan, Brussels
Airlines will never have to deal with miscellaneous spreadsheets,
disparate databases, or unwieldy planning systems again,” said Anaplan
CEO Fred Laluyaux. "Brussels Airlines can be confident that their data
and plans are telling a consistent story, results are mapping to
projections and business decisions are backed by accurate test
scenarios.”

The implementation of the Anaplan project at Brussels Airlines will be done by element61, the though-leading Business Analytics consulting company in Belgium. The implementation is the second project element61 has won in 3 months, following being the first Belgian certified Anaplan implementation partner.
