Retail Budgeting and Productivity

AnaplanAppHub
Not applicable
This app is designed to make the process of monthly budgeting in a retail environment both more efficient and more accurate. This forecasting tool will use prior year sales information, combined with current productivity and sales growth goals to create individual store budgets with both daily sales and hour figures. It will also take into account holiday periods and provide an additional breakout, in order to provide a more detailed view for forecasting. When tracking the current month budget, this app will compare budget vs actuals in order to predict whether each store will hit their monthly sales and productivity goals. It will then adjust future daily sales and hour forecasts to project more realistic figures based on actuals for the current month. Detailed reporting is also included, at store, district, multi-district, and division/regional levels.
