Volkswagen de Mexico selects BOARD International BI Platform for financial planning and reporting

9th October 2015

BOARD International, has announced that the Volkswagen manufacturing centre Volkswagen de Mexico, has selected the BOARD 9 platform for detailed financial planning and production reporting to executives at Volkswagen headquarters in Germany. 




According to Bjoern Ehlbeck, Executive Vice-President, Finance and Organization of Volkswagen de Mexico, the BOARD platform was chosen after an extensive evaluation for its flexibility and depth of capabilities, including the ability to calculate precise margins achieved for new vehicles and spare parts manufactured.  Primary criteria for the selection included maintaining maximum data quality, seamless integration with back-end SAP systems, monitoring of the systems progress, and the ability to report results faster and better than the centre’s legacy systems. 

“Perhaps most compelling to us, though, was that the BOARD all-in-one platform was software that we could customize to our business needs now and into the future, rather than having to change our business practices to fit others’ BI software offerings,” said Mr. Ehlbeck.

Giovanni Grossi, CEO of BOARD International, commented, “Volkswagen is a great example of a highly profitable and competitive business that will reap the benefits of our unified platform for performance management and analytics.  The BOARD platform is ideally suited to granular performance management for the financial side of a business, as well as predictive analytics and Business Intelligence for operational planning and management.”
