SAP Business Planning & Consolidation (BPC)
PVH Europe BV is the proud owner of a number of major clothing brands, including Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein. The company has been successfully using SAP BPC 7.5 on the Microsoft platform for some time for supplying the information needed for financial consolidation and high-level forecasting. Following an intensive period of collecting and analysing its requirements, PHV adopted a design for the implementation of SAP BPC 10 Netweaver. CPMview was assigned the challenging task of setting up and further shaping the new environment.
The bottom-up planning and forecasting process at PHV is extensive. CPMview is now faced with the challenge of creating an environment that optimally facilitates PHV’s planning and forecasting process. This concerns the set-up of the annual budgeting process and the preparation of monthly forecasts for sales, costs and capex-related information at the profit and cost centre level. The emphasis here is on three core values: A system that supplies accurate information fast, easily and well-organised; a flexible design with optimal room for new requirements; better control over the process as a result of improved analysis facilities.
