To manage the fast-paced nature of SaaS (software as a service), FP&A needs to jumpstart plans and configure changes to match the nuances of your business. With Anaplan’s Planning, Budgeting, and Forecasting for SaaS app, you can do just that—plan, model, analyze, and report across metrics that matter, including monthly recurring revenue (MRR), cost of customer acquisition (CAC), lifetime value (LTV), renewals, churn, and more.
