Swiss Railways Backs arcplan Enterprise for Financial Planning

Swiss Railways (SBB) is the largest travel and transport company in Switzerland. With a 3,000-kilometer rail network, SBB trains are responsible for around 87 percent of person kilometers traveled and around 90 percent of freight traffic tonne kilometers. SBB’s 28,000 co-workers achieve annual sales of 2.16 billion Swiss francs from passenger traffic and 0.97 billion Swiss francs from freight traffic. After becoming a joint-stock company, SBB introduced a Europe-wide planning solution to its Finance and Accounting Department that enabled

  • a flexible six-year planning, with simulations and
  • a transparent, verifiable results presentation.

"With the new solution, today we are in a position to plan strategically. We can now react to changing requirements in the market place and in the organization itself within a very short time. The methodical procedures and transparent structures mean results are always comprehensible. Through simulations, the planning process becomes the goal-setting process!"
Silvan von Rohr, Group Planning Corporate Finance and Controlling

The solution based on arcplan Enterprise provides business users with

  • a strategic business management through flexible planning and simulations,
  • a faster planning execution,
  • an increase in user-friendliness, and
  • a decrease of maintenance.
