Overall Satisfaction with Anaplan
Currently we are using Anaplan for account ownership and territory planning. We are about to role out Anaplan for incentive compensation. Our current use saves us tons of time from our Excel planning and allows us to see the impact of proposed changes without trying to manipulate a large Excel file and worry about version control. An additional benefit from our implementation is quick and easy reporting on account ownership. Having incentive compensation in Anaplan will allow us to integrate the two instances and see the impact of account moves to compensation and vice versa see the impact to sales reps pay based on their books of potential compensation changes.
- Calculate values based on data in other files; we use this for scoring accounts
- See the impact of new scenarios and potential changes; we do this with proposed territory changes
- Quick and easy reporting on your current setup
- Logistics and relationships of data are complicated if you do not have a data background
- Formulas are difficult without a data background
- We need more storage, we have large data sets
Before Anaplan we used Excel. This was time-consuming, had version control issues, crashed, and was limiting in scenario planning. Moving to Anaplan immediately saved us time, eliminated version control issues, allowed us to quickly do scenario planning and had the added benefit of quick and easy reporting. We have a lot of data and we ran into data limitations in Excel that we do not have in Anaplan.
Anaplan is great for moving large data sets out of Excel for analysis. It is great for scenario planning.
