clock

Aviva has moved to cloud-based systems in a bid to improve the group's finance, sales and operations.

According to the global insurance provider, software company Anaplan will enable it to plan and forecast to better meet the changing pace of business, that was not possible with previous technology.

Darren Craddock, director of planning and forecasting at Aviva, said: "By using the Anaplan platform for our end-to-end group planning process, we will be able to spend far less time generating an accurate forecast, leaving more time for analysis.

"It will allow us to further optimise strategic plans as we can now instantly see results of alternative scenarios in different ways to suit the varying departmental and executive needs."

Ian Stone, UK managing director at Anaplan, said the aim was increased planning efficiency for insurers to focus more on in-depth analysis and increase operational efficiency.

Anaplan is a cloud-based, in-memory modelling and planning platform for finance, sales, and operations.

Its applications aim to enable business users to manage complex multi-dimensional models and collaborate across functions and regions.
