Enabling finance to steer Umicore through volatile market circumstances in a connected planning landscape
Filip van Echelpoel, VP Strategic Planning & Digitalization, Umicore
In a world with a growing need of advanced materials, precious metal recycling and circularity expectations, but with high inflation and volatile metal prices, flexibility and pro-activeness are key. With this trend in mind, Umicore is refining its planning processes with Anaplan to be better equipped to tackle challenges that lie ahead. By speeding up the extraction of insights from raw data and allowing information to flow efficiently throughout the different parts of the business, Umicore is leveraging Anaplan to steer its activities pro-actively instead of reactively. It can confidently move forward knowing that all scenarios have been considered.
