From workforce planning and budget forecasting, to reconciliations and expense tracking, Anaplan has the flexibility to grow and adapt with us as our needs grow and change. The adaptability and scope of this platform is without compare.”—Systems Integrator, Government
  • “We began with an initial scope of work in global financial planning and analysis. Performance gains were immediately recognized upon implementation, and we quickly realized the potential of Anaplan’s platform by extending use of the platform to cases well beyond core planning and analysis. The flexibility of the platform to integrate new use cases and data, with the strong governance and integrity of a modern cloud platform, is invaluable.”—Director, Financial Analysis, Finance Industry

Our Sales Performance Management customers are similarly impressed with the value our platform. Here are just a few of the great things they say about Anaplan:

  • “Sales planning, quoting, incentive structure, and planning are made more effective and stress-free. Pipeline management, objective management, and a lot more were made productive after we started using Anaplan.” —Sales and Marketing professional, Education Industry
  • “We use Anaplan as it helps us build a more agile sales strategy that is always linked to our Product strategy as well as manages our sales performance in the most effective way. It is an amazing tool where we are able to plan our business using a single platform with a Data Hub or with an option to pull in data from multiple other CRM systems. The best part is the ability to bring various domains together along with specific roles and access.” Performance and Portfolio Manager, Finance Industry
  • Anaplan for Sales helps us optimize our Sales strategy by intertwining it with our Product strategy and thus effectively mobilizes our teams with adaptable plans and insightful forecasts. It allows us to effectively manage our go-to-market strategy, stabilize revenues, and build agility into our sales/product strategy.” Product Marketing Manager, Service Industry
  • “It was a pleasing experience dealing with the Anaplan sales team during our evaluation process. We have used the likes of SAP and Oracle but for now, I find Anaplan better than those two.” Sales and Marketing professional, Media Industry

Anaplan leads in transformational change. With Anaplan, cross-functional leaders uncover new opportunities for value creation. That’s not just what we say about ourselves, it’s what we believe can be extrapolated from the 2021 Gartner Market Guide for Cloud, Extended Planning, and Analysis Solutions report.  Anaplan is the only vendor that hits all planning functions with an xP&A “turn key” ability.
