ZEST PLAN Case study

reducing revenue planning time by 50%

Domestic appliance insurer Zest Plan found that Excel was becoming clunky and difficult to use. Excel was seriously slowing down their ability to forecast profitability.

With a new acquisition, fast growth and an expanding product portfolio they needed to be able to model across pricing, staff numbers, product mix and sales per hour.

Initially finance controller Anthony Ridgwell wasn't convinced they needed anything more than Excel, but the complexity added by more than one company, more products and a demand from the management team to be able to model across more dimensions led him to the conclusion that Excel wasn't fit for the job anymore.
