PlanNEL’s Multi-Currency Analysis for Enhanced Sales and Profit Forecasting
Zionex introduces a groundbreaking enhancement to its SaaS-type Supply Chain Management (SCM) service, “PlanNEL.” This innovative feature enables user companies to seamlessly incorporate their proprietary exchange rate prediction data into the system, unlocking the ability to analyze sales and profit forecasts in multiple currencies with unparalleled ease.
Demand Planning Workbench User Interface
In the context of a manufacturer engaged in overseas sales and global expansion, individuals responsible for each country’s financial projections often manage sales and profit forecasts using disparate Excel files stored locally or within internal shared folders.
The repercussions of this decentralized approach include challenges such as the head office’s delayed access to monetary sales forecasts for each country, the inconvenience of converting diverse currencies to yen, and the inherent complexity of analyzing multiple Excel files managed independently by each country.
To address these challenges, PlanNEL empowers user companies by allowing them to seamlessly integrate their own exchange rate prediction data ** into the system. This newly released function centralizes sales and profit forecasts in multiple currencies on the cloud, providing a user-friendly platform for streamlined and real-time analysis.
** If users do not possess exchange rate prediction data, they also have the option to utilize data provided by various financial institutions.
Exchange Rate Configuration User Interface
Enhanced Analysis Capabilities
Upon uploading exchange rate forecast data from the PlanNEL management screen, user companies can automatically calculate forecasted sales and profit amounts in multiple currencies. These values can be conveniently converted into yen***, allowing users to monitor and analyze them in real time on the cloud screen.
*** Converts to the currency set for each person’s account. The ability to specify the currency on the analysis report and use it for sales and profit forecasting will be supported in a future update.
