Overall Satisfaction with Anaplan

At Diageo we use Anaplan for commerical and financial planning. It has been currently deployed in our beer business for P&L calculation and sales planning. For spirits and wines it is currently used for sales and distributor planning. Anaplan is highly effective in communicating sales goals and distributor collaboration.
  • Financial Planning
  • Distributor Sales Collaboration
  • Real-time analysis
  • Delays in module updates
  • Slow Scrolling
  • Customization of Module Views is often very manual
  • Overhead cost savings
  • Improved Business Focus
Diageo continues to expand it's application of Anaplan to new areas of the business and based upon it's success this trend will continue.
Anaplan is ideal for situations where large Excel files are exchanged and communication/analysis is diffiuclt. By consolidating communications and sales targets in a single "space" it becomes extremely efficient to plan.
