BOSTON - Wednesday, November 30th 2016 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- BOARD International, the world’s leading supplier of decision making software, today announced that The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated is deploying the BOARD Cloud software for Financial Planning and Analysis.
The Cheesecake Factory selected BOARD following an extensive RFP process that focused specifically on the need for a tool-kit approach that would give the company’s financial model designers the flexibility to adapt solutions that met the specific needs of their business while integrating with their existing BI deployment.
“We were looking for a Cloud-based platform that would minimize our internal investments in infrastructure and support, and would enable secure data integrations with our internal ERP systems and SQL based operational data,” said Matt Clark, Senior Vice President of Finance and Strategy at The Cheesecake Factory.
“With BOARD, we found an intuitive end user interface and a development layer that offered a practical solution within which our financial professionals could readily design models. We believe this solution will empower our business users to spend more time focusing on the guest experience, and our finance team to spend more time analyzing and less time on planning and reporting,” concluded Clark.
