Use Cases and Deployment Scope

It's used by the entire sales organization to orchestrate the commissions plans and payout. We went from managing all our commissions on a spreadsheet to automating it in a consistent way on Anaplan. Previously, the commissions process was error-prone and provided limited visibility to the individual reps. Now, there's more visibility and accuracy. The set up process is longer than Excel but we had a good third party vendor help us implement the solution. It is more costly than Excel but provides better long-term scalability.

Anaplan is being used as a way to implement and maintain a zero based budgeting planning approach. It has allowed the business to track its savings and make sure it is on track to recognize the savings.
