By admin, June 24, 2006 3:26 am

Hyperion recently announced that Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., is using Hyperion for consolidation and management of source data from its 36 companies around the world to meet its strategic goals.

Since forging an alliance with Renault in 1999, Nissan has implemented a series of dramatic restructuring plans to reduce debt and boost sales and profit margin. The company has successfully met all commitments made since 1999 and has set even more aggressive objectives with its new three-year business plan NISSAN Value-Up. Under Value-Up, which began in April 2005, Nissan has committed to the following three goals:

¢ to maintain the top level of operating profit margin among global automakers for each of the three years of the plan;
¢ to achieve global sales of 4.2 million units, measured in fiscal year 2008;
¢ to achieve a 20% return on invested capital on average over the course of the plan, excluding cash on hand.

To achieve these objectives, the global automaker needed a solution for analyzing the data from its SAP R/3 ERP system. With the adoption of Hyperion's software, Nissan is now able to analyze profit of its group companies, including profit per vehicle by market and segment, enabling the company to make better-informed decisions.
