Keeping you in the know!

What do you like best?

Personalized dashboard on a per employee basis, providing an abundance of information pertaining to an array of policies, contracts, dashboards, etc. It's essentially a one-stop shop for most things finance/payroll related, being able to effectively view and report on my compensation plans, my targets, my performance, my payroll information, etc.

What do you dislike?

It does require an Administrator to configure things properly on the back-end to be able to effectively utilize the tool (which I'm lucky to have) but perhaps a little more friendly of a UI so a training session to use the system isn't necessarily a necessity.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A great centralized tool, allowing all information pertaining to payroll, contracts, compensations, etc. to be detailed on a per employee basis, and accessible right at one's fingertips.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping every employee up to speed regarding their payment plans, where they are on that plan to date, payout information, etc. Especially working on a sales team like myself, knowing these compensation details is paramount.

Anaplan is one of the best integrated planning cloud based software tools in market today

What do you like best?

With Anaplan, connected planning has become easy. This cloud platform is being used by several organizations today and what I like best is the ease of use, flexibility and different slice-and-dice options provided by this tool. It is easy to grasp and build models!

What do you dislike?

Formatting capabilities of Anaplan are not its forte. It is sometimes a struggle when reports need to be fancy and output needs to be shown in pdf or excel format

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently, We are using anaplan to do sales allocation and operational planning. The benefits are having all data at one place, it is easy to reflect one change in all places and makes a user's life easy since they can see all views in one page!

Best Modeling Tool Around

What do you like best?

Anaplan is an incredible tool for modeling. You have the ability to create endless lists and dimensions that can be used for modeling. Imagine custom drop down menus, date fields, boolean check boxes, and much more. These modeling fields can be used to create great modeling! Also, Anaplan has the capacity to work within many different areas of the business. You can create an FP&A plan, inventory plan, sales territory and quota plan, sales compensation calculation, and really any business modeling you can think of. Other tools in this category cannot create models like this in other parts of the business. Finally, Anaplan manages to create this data real-time. Other competitors cannot create data real-time like Anaplan can.

What do you dislike?

Being a tool that can accomplish all business modeling needs, it can get implemented poorly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

FP&A, Sales planning, Sales compensation, and inventory planning.

Sales Manager

What do you like best?

The main thing that I liked having everything in one view. I also could easily pull reports on my reps YTD Number. It was great to use during a 1-1 to show progress or to talk about strategy to get back to their goal.

What do you dislike?

The main thing that I disliked was that it wasn't connected to the drill down data. I couldn't click on the number to see what that number was comprised of. There also were a lot of days where it was down. As sales people, we are tracking our number daily.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Business problem that its solving- Visibility of Sales Performance in order to hit sales goals. The benefits that I have realized are- no manual tracking of sales numbers, rep accountability.

Easy to use software that gets the info where it needs to be.

What do you like best?

Anaplan makes quick work of organizing large amounts of data, and allows the user to present the data in whichever way they choose.

What do you dislike?

There are a few minor glitches that are a little frustrating, but don't affect the usability. For instance, when using a "weeks" timescale, you can only use the week number and can't change it to show a date (e.g. date of the Monday of that week).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently using it for our material planning needs, and it has allowed us to move completely out of excel for our Planning needs.

I am a model builder for supply chain business unit.

What do you like best?

I like how it is a cloud erp solution. all users are sure that they are looking at the same data/dashboards. the speed is nice.

What do you dislike?

cannot apply conditional formatting to single cells. only can apply to an entire line item. wish there would be more charting options. dashboarding is a bit wonky and can spend a lot of time making sure it looks nice on a specific ration screen.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am building models for forecasting. quickly analyze multiple what if statements and compare different regressions side by side.
