For global enterprises, spreadsheet-based planning involves complex multiples. Multiple entities, currencies, and users can lead to a lengthy, problematic planning process. In fact, you may have experienced the woes of problematic planning. Of course, spreadsheets are integral to planning – but are they agile enough to keep up with volatile business landscapes and your competition?
Most companies rely on spreadsheets for financial budgeting, planning, and forecasting, and also quota management and commission calculations. But managing these complexities with spreadsheets really limits what you can achieve.
With business planning, what if you could calculate accurate commission plans and improve your financial planning with real-time data?
