Sessions to Scale Your FP&A Processes at Planful Perform24

Perform24 sessions to scale your FP&A processes

Growth is the goal of nearly every organization. Effective and efficient growth requires scalability across the company’s solutions and processes, which can challenge even the most experienced finance and accounting teams.

At this year’s Perform24, we’ve gathered leaders in finance, accounting, and FP&A to share how they successfully scaled their organizations with Planful.

Among the planned sessions at this year’s event, three organizations stand out for their success stories on scalability and supporting accelerated growth with Planful:

  • American Coatings Association
  • stayAPT Suites
  • Tokio Marine HCC

These organizations have embraced dynamic planning, business-wide collaboration, and automated workflows to enhance decision-making, reduce manual effort, and scale finance and accounting efforts.

Let’s look at each organization’s can’t-miss session in detail.

American Coatings Association chats about better budgeting with Planful

Budgeting can be tedious, pulling business stakeholders away from operational efforts. Every second away is a drop in efficiency and productivity for the business. Conversely, every second saved gets teams back to focusing on the business while budgets get into the hands of strategic decision-makers more quickly.

Jessica Logan, Senior Vice President & Chief Financial Officer at American Coatings Association, will share how the company transitioned from a manual, Excel-driven budgeting process to a smooth, seamless, and informative Planful-led budgeting workflow.

In her session, Jessica will also share how they’ve accelerated the budgeting process and taken advantage of Planful’s flexibility to meet the company’s unique needs.

Let’s Chat About Better Budgeting” is scheduled for Thursday, May 16, from 10:40 to 11:15 a.m. Pacific Time.

Bonus session: For even more expertise on budgeting scalability, consider attending “Building a Better Budgeting Process With Planful Budget Manager Experience” with Amrita Johal, Planful Solution Consultant.

Amrita’s session is scheduled for Wednesday, May 15, from 4:00 to 4:35 p.m. Pacific Time.

How stayAPT Suites quickly scaled across multiple businesses using financial performance management

Running a fast-growing hotel chain is challenging enough. Add in construction projects, hotel openings, and other initiatives, and those challenges can bring growth to a crawl.

Molly King, Manager of FP&A at stayAPT Suites, will take the stage at Perform24 to explain how this apartment-style hotel chain uses Planful to scale efficiently across multiple business lines.

Molly will also showcase how the company uses Planful Dynamic Planning across its hotel, development, and real estate businesses without losing sight of day-to-day execution or long-term strategic goals.

Scaling Quickly Across Multiple Businesses With the Help of Dynamic Planning” is scheduled for Wednesday, May 15, from 2:10 to 2:45 p.m. Pacific Time.

How Tokio Marine HCC banished boring reporting with Planful

Not many finance and accounting professionals get excited about reporting — unless they use Planful. With the right solutions in place, you can build better, more engaging, informative reports.

Stacey Heidebrecht, Vice President Corporate Reporting at Tokio Marine HCC, used that thinking to turn reporting into a critical differentiator for the company.

In her session, Stacey will show how her team scaled reporting across hundreds of subsidiaries with a team of just 14 professionals. Planful Spotlight for Excel was a big part of that effort, so expect to hear more about how they used it to continue scaling access to financial insights even as business demands changed.

Catch Stacey’s session, “How We Banished Boring and Got the Business Excited About Reporting,” on Wednesday, May 15, from 2:50 to 3:25 p.m. Pacific Time.
