Connected planning for finance: The new office of the CFO

Finance teams today face several challenges, including streamlining collaboration with other functions, anticipating change, and being able to respond quickly in order to help the business to stay ahead of the game

To overcome these challenges and be ready for the future, finance teams need to evolve—and they can start by replacing disconnected planning systems that require teams to spend most of their time collecting and cleaning data rather than analysing information and formulating strategies.

Join us for a breakfast briefing on 17th October to learn how innovative finance leaders are driving connected planning initiatives to turn finance into a function that provides strategic insight and direction while driving faster, more effective planning processes, helping to achieve business objectives.

By attending this event, you will learn how the Anaplan platform can help with eliminating fragmented processes and countless hours of manual work, freeing up teams to focus on intelligent, value-added work. It’s time to turn finance into a control tower for your organisation.
