...Toyota’s Financial Services Arm Chooses Hyperion Business Performance Management Solution for Global Financial Consolidation, Reporting and Analysis ...

EGHAM, England. June 13, 2002 – Hyperion (Nasdaq: HYSL), a global leader in business performance management software, today announced that Toyota Financial Services, the global financial services arm of Toyota, one of the world’s leading automotive manufacturing companies, is standardising its financial consolidation and business analysis processes on Hyperion’s business performance management solution.

Toyota Financial Services is using Hyperion’s Web-architected applications to analyse the business performance of its financial services operations and also to consolidate financial information from Toyota’s global financial services network. Through Hyperion’s business performance management solutions, Toyota Financial Services analysts expect to significantly reduce the analysis and reporting cycle, allowing the company to respond far quicker to its customer needs, economic conditions and product demands.

Bob Dowe, vice president of sales finance group of Toyota Financial Services, said, “The global automotive market has become very mature over the last few years, and this has led to greatly increased competition for vehicle sales and related financial services. It is therefore vital for Toyota Financial Services that we have the systems in place to help us optimise our business performance, and that requires accurate analysis as well as rapid consolidation and reporting. Hyperion has already proven its ability to deliver that to us.”

Dowe continued, saying that the main focus of the business performance management environment at Toyota Financial Services is to improve business processes and identify opportunities to enhance revenue, lower costs or gain a competitive advantage. Hyperion’s solution provides Toyota management with an enabling technology for accurate planning, analysis and reporting of the performance of the financial services group companies. This will allow Toyota Financial Services to become increasingly responsive to market opportunities and more competitive in respect of the financial service offerings from other leading automotive manufacturers and other financial service companies.

Toyota Financial Services selected the Hyperion solution for its speed of operation, and for the ease of maintenance and deployment afforded by its Web-based architecture, which the company will use to help drive accountability throughout the organisation by strengthening the links between performance measures and rewards.

The initial phase of Toyota Financial Services’ implementation is based on Hyperion Essbase XTD for business performance management in 18 countries, with plans to expand to a further 8 or more in the near to mid-term. Hyperion Enterprise is used for financial consolidation at Toyota Financial Services headquarters in Nagoya, Japan.
