Overview of the Client

Business Challenges & Objectives

Kellogg Latin America aimed to upgrade and simplify its Hyperion-based planning to a comprehensive solution integrating several peripheral tools and processes into a single planning interface. Kellogg’s wanted to:

  • Increase the intra-organizational data visibility by providing access to granular information
  • Standardize their databases
  • Implement new business rules and streamline existing ones

The Solution

TekLink led the technical design of the new framework and worked closely with Kellogg’s to deliver an integrated solution based on Anaplan. The solution involved integrating Kellogg’s peripheral tools, automating business rules (a set of calculations conducted to manipulate data prior to consolidation), increasing the level of details the users could retrieve from the tool, and dramatically reducing the time taken in the consolidation process.

Business Outcomes and Benefits

  • Increased product visibility: Kellogg’s can now retrieve granular commercial information previously stored in independent databases. This helps maintain better traceability and data integrity with official FP&A reporting.
  • A robust technical solution: Replaced Hyperion with a more agile and efficient planning technology (Anaplan), eliminating breakdowns that consistently delayed the process.
  • Process Improvements: Simplification and integration of databases reduced process closing turnaround time to half a day and saved over 2,500 hours in yearly consolidation workload.
  • Flexible Data Architecture: Datasets defined by the team provides higher flexibility to the Supply Chain network  by recording the invoiced/ legal view of information and the market/ business view independently.
TekLink’s team exceeded Kellogg Latin America’s expectations with the implementation of Anaplan. Not only their diligence and technical mastery were evident, but also provided critical and out-of-the-box solutions to meet the project’s criteria and expand its scope.
