NewDay, a leading UK consumer finance provider, has partnered with connected planning specialist, Vuealta to improve its business planning, budgeting and forecasting via the Anaplan platform.
Paul Sheriff, CFO at NewDay, commented, “The business has achieved significant growth in the last few years, whilst also expanding its portfolio of products and partnerships. We needed a planning platform that was more agile, and could connect the dots across the rapidly evolving business.”
“The Vuealta team helped us deliver a solution that maximised the benefits of the technology, with a fully connected financial model of the business. We are delighted with the impact it has had for the most recent budgeting cycle.” Following this success, NewDay is expanding the scope of the Anaplan platform into other areas beyond budgeting and forecasting.

By connecting their planning in the Anaplan platform and tailoring that solution to NewDay, we have been able to provide the scale and flexibility they need to continue to grow in their challenging industry. We’re looking forward to continuing our relationship with this industry pioneer and working together to achieve its business goals.”
