ANAPLAN IS DIFFERENT

Anaplan allows for the structuring of massive Excel© and Access© files. You can unify and integrate all master data, processes and people together in a single model for your organization.

Simple & Intuitive
  • No programming, scripts, macros. The experience for modelers is easy and intuitive, even simpler than in Excel©
  • It eliminates corporate MS Excel© in all areas of automatization. Models are available in hundreds of billions of cells
  • No need to manage any in-house infrastructure
  • Any change to the model can be made on the fly by your local teams
Connected & Transparent
  • Anaplan smoothly integrates into your current IT infrastructure, enriching it, without disturbing
  • The platform connects fragmented data, disjoint processes and dispersed teams in your business into a single connected model
  • It links Operational planning with Financial and Strategic planning
  • The platform brings transparency for top management via dashboards. Deep, intuitive and detailed drill-down capabilities is the strength of the platform
  • Automated model visualization and logic documentation helps to have a transparent and open mode
Easy to work with
  • It takes about 8-10 weeks to implement one use case for your business
  • We involve your team from the very beginning, co-create and teach them so that later you can make changes and create models yourself
  • It does not take a Math Phd to work and model in Anaplan. All technical aspects of the system are invisible for your extended teams and modelers
Powerful & Productive
  • Anaplan’s platform boasts the world’s most powerful and flexible modeling and calculation engine, called Hyperblock™
  • This in-memory engine enables the creation of detailed planning models that utilize all your data down to the transactional level (product SKU, stores, employees, etc.)
  • Once you make a change to any cell in Anaplan, data is recalculated across all models on the fly
  • The platform capacity allows you to work with almost unlimited models with millions of cells and thousands of users working simultaneously
Cost Efficient

  • With Anaplan, you spend NOTHING on hardware, new versions, or administration
  • Unlike many other systems, you always get upgraded versions for free once they get released
  • Anaplan Service Level Agreement (SLA) guarantees a 99,95% service availability all year long which is included in the subscription. In-house solutions cannot provide a comparable level of performance for the same cost
