Trelleborgs Kommun simplifies HR planning with Jedox planning and forecasting

Contract follows Jedox’s recent partnership with Malmo-based XLENT’s specialist planning and analytics team

Freiburg, Germany – October 20th, 2021: Jedox, a leading global provider of cloud-based enterprise performance management software, has announced a new contract following the company’s recent partnership with XLENT’s specialist planning and analytics consultancy team based in Malmo, Sweden.

Trelleborgs Kommun, Sweden’s southernmost municipality, will use a solution developed by the XLENT team based on Jedox planning and forecasting capabilities as part of an HR cost management solution. Deploying Jedox across the municipality will simplify HR cost planning, providing managers across the municipality with much greater control and insight into their HR costs and planning.

According to Trelleborgs Kommun’s Deputy Municipal Director, Bo Carlbark, “Previously we had to refer all HR budgeting and forecasting queries to controllers in our central Finance team – taking up far too much of their time, and also making it much harder for different departments to carry out their HR planning. HR costs account for around 70% of the municipality’s overall budget. However, with the Jedox-based solution from XLENT in place, we can now optimise our HR planning while still handling all the inevitable complexities associated with employment.”

“There’s even more pressure on CFOs and Finance teams today to budget, plan and forecast effectively. Unfortunately, too many organizations are still reliant on legacy planning, reporting and analysis tools that often hold them back from supporting these critical activities,” explained Robert Kardum, Xlent’s Business Manager. “That’s why we’re delighted that XLENT has added Jedox to its portfolio, and that our solution is already helping major Swedish organizations like Trelleborgs Kommun to optimise key processes such as HR.”

“Adding the Jedox solution to the XLENT portfolio is proving a smart move as it allows customers to take advantage of the most advanced cloud-based tools for budgeting, planning and analysis – all available through an easy-to-use Web application that embraces Excel. Jedox helps organisations such as Trelleborgs Kommun to help move their Enterprise Performance Management forward while also making a significant saving on their software and IT resource costs,” added Chris Stiebel, Regional Director Nordics, Jedox.

Part of the major XLENT consultancy group, the XLENT team brings together over 20 years’ business and FP&A expertise along with proven competence in key planning and analytics technologies from leading legacy software vendors. As a Jedox partner, XLENT is ideally placed to support the growing number of Swedish organizations looking to make the move to a cloud-based solution to support their budgeting, planning, and forecasting activities.
