Connect your boardroom to your factory floor, and your short-term profit objectives to your long-term strategy
Connected Planning in Automotive and Manufacturing
The manufacturing and automotive industries are at a crossroads. Product performance is no longer “good enough” to satisfy customer demands. Lifetime quality, digital and after-sale offerings, and end user experience are changing how your products are valued by consumers. More than ever, that value is driven by your product’s digital content, which has introduced new complexities to the engineering and development processes and timeline. Sound challenging? It doesn’t have to be. With Anaplan, connect your people, data, and plans to enable real-time planning and decision-making in rapidly changing environments to give your business a competitive edge.
