Fast results with flexible collaboration
A close-knit team of four – half Solita, half DNA – was free to move forward. No guidelines, no strict timetables. Only cooperation, flexibility and trust.
Applications were migrated to Planning Analytics one at a time. First, rolling forecasts were up and running. Next, activity-based costing was ready, and finally, fixed asset management. In the fall of 2019, the entire palette had been migrated to the cloud and the old solution was laid to rest.
An element of suspense came from the decision to launch the first application in the middle of DNA’s busiest budgeting period. Courage and confidence in Solita carried the team over the finishing line.
“Our ambition was just to move forward. Controllers entered budget figures in the old system, the project team carried out the technical cutover, and controllers continued their work on Planning Analytics. Everything hit the mark. Users received training and Solita supported with questions,” Juho Ansio recalls.
Business Analyst Ulla Annala is the main user of Planning Analytics at DNA. She praises the low threshold for implementation. “Learning a new system is always somewhat exciting, but our users embraced the new solution painlessly. Their feedback has been unanimous: simple, easy to use, and quick to learn,” she says.
