With the Anaplan Budgeting, Planning and Forecasting app, you add control and seamlessly connect planning across your organization. With Anaplan, senior executives can see the big picture at a glance and use the global key performance indicator dashboard to drill into details and understand the why behind the numbers. For strategic planning, create and analyze multiple scenarios like Base, Conservative and Aggressive planning initiatives for revenue growth, price changes, or market expansion.

For corporate planning, it’s fast, easy and accurate to cascade your strategic plan. With Anaplan’s unlimited dimensions and connected platform, you set assumptions and drivers that help automate the top down process.

Start with revenue, and layer in headcount, OPEX and CAPEX plans, pushing down to dimensions such as business unit, channel, region or product, and plan by any timeframe from day to year, configuring Anaplan to fit your business. Make changes like adding products or altering regional roll-ups with a click not code and the change will ripple across models and plans immediately. Include sales and operational drivers in your annual budget for connected, aligned bottom-up planning. Robust Breakback options empower budgeters to speed entry, leverage historical trends, and even hold and override values.

Add bottom up details for headcount like salary, department and benefits that automatically translate full-time equivalence into role and individual specifics, and you can leverage the same shortcuts and built-in methods for OPEX and CAPEX budgets too so you finish faster with more accuracy than ever before.
