Table of Contents

PlainsCapital Corporation has selected A3 Solution’s budgeting software to unify budgeting and forecasting across all of its banking, brokerage, and mortgage businesses.

A3 Solutions, Inc., a leader in Enterprise Budgeting and Corporate Performance Management (CPM) solutions, today announced the general availability of A3 Solutions, a leading provider of Enterprise Budgeting software and Corporate Performance Management products, announced today that PlainsCapital Corporation has selected A3 Modeling to unify budgeting and forecasting across all of its banking, brokerage, and mortgage businesses.

“We selected A3 Solutions because it has the flexibility and scalability we need to model the financial complexity of our business. A3 Modeling gives us a unified view of our business at a granular level of detail. It handles our allocations, eliminations, yield, and interest modeling without any compromise to our business logic and process,” said Aaron Taylor, senior vice president & director of financial planning and analysis at PlainsCapital Corporation. “The implementation was fast – we were up and running within a few weeks.”

Using the team’s existing Excel expertise, PlainsCapital was able to standardize and roll up a chart of accounts for all three of its operating companies – PlainsCapital Bank, PrimeLending, and FirstSouthwest – using A3’s comprehensive solution. A3’s modeling flexibility is unmatched offering dynamic, real-time spreadsheet models that utilize a company’s existing business rules.

“We believe companies should plan their business the way they run their business,” said Rob Lautt, CEO and Founder of A3 Solutions. “Companies who choose to implement other corporate performance management (CPM) solutions are often forced to accept and utilize financial logic that’s not quite right and processes that are convoluted and inefficient. Using A3 Solutions, companies no longer have to compromise.”

Among CPM vendors, A3 Solutions offers more sophisticated modeling technology at the lowest cost to purchase and maintain. In addition to enterprise-level budgeting and rolling forecasting, A3 Solutions’ offering includes management reporting, multi-entity consolidations, KPI dashboards & balanced scorecards, and ad-hoc analysis.
