Family-owned since 1876, Bissell has maintained a longstanding commitment to sustainability, an initiative that Upclear also prioritizes.
How Bissell discovered BluePlanner
Leadership from Bissell reached out to UpCclear in late October of 2020. Their previous platform was expiring and could not adapt to their changing business needs including more robust reporting and support for international. Upclear was one of three vendors shortlisted for review, and received word of final selection in February 2021.
Launching with BluePlanner
Bissell has kicked off deployment of the latest version of BluePlanner from UpClear. A broad cross functional team including international enabled the project to start with the full vision and ensure all key needs will be met in year one with the ability to adapt and add on capabilities in the following years. The project is split into two phases, Phase 1 is focused on planning with most of the integration back to Oracle by the Fall, and Phase 2 will close the loop with settlements, financial integration, and Analytics before the end of the year to ensure a smooth transition for 2022.
