Budgeting Software Success: A Vacation with Automation At Vail Resorts

Vail Resorts Adaptive Planning Corporate Performance Management and Business Intelligence Success StoryWe could sit here and talk all day about the types of financial consolidation, collaboration, and automation challenges that Adaptive Planning helps businesses to solve every day, from SMBs to major enterprises.

But as the saying goes, seeing (or in this case reading) is believing.

So instead of taking our word for it, take it from Vail Resorts. The Broomfield, Colorado-based hospitality and property management company is not only the leading mountain resort operator in the United States; but also one of countless companies that serve as real-world proof of Adaptive’s usability, automation and integration features, and overall value.

Prior to implementing Adaptive, Vail was experiencing many of the same problems that other successful enterprise organizations face today.

Vail Resorts Adaptive Planning corporate performance management customer success story

Vail Resorts’ Beaver Creek Resort in Colorado.

Vail had separate, disjointed financial planning processes and accounting systems throughout the organization; low collaboration across departments; and time-consuming version control issues with Excel modeling.

The company needed an automated solution to help consolidate important business data into a single location, and then benchmark across properties. We’ll let Wayne McLellan, Jr., Vail Resorts Senior Manager of Lodging Finance, explain why Vail chose Adaptive to help streamline the company’s financial processes:

 “After comparing multiple options, Adaptive Planning was a no brainer because of its robust functionality, affordable cost, and customizable options that met our planning needs.”

The result for Vail after implementing Adaptive?

“The time spent on the forecasting process has been reduced by 83% across more than 25 participants. Strategic decision-making has improved as a result, and we now review a 90-day forecast each month and run reports to compare budgets/forecasts to actual and to prior forecasts. With Adaptive Planning we have a much better ability to manage the top line.”
