Anaplan hosts over 3,000 enterprise planners at its Hub global tour

Speakers at user conferences included Deloitte, HP, Legal & General, and McKinsey & Company

San Francisco, November 30, 2015 – Hosting over 3,000 planning professionals in seven cities worldwide, Anaplan’s Hub15 global tour, which concluded in November, featured presentations from a number of high-profile customer speakers — including McKinsey & Company, HP, Brakes, Legal & General, DocuSign, and Deloitte.

The Hub global tour offered Sales, Finance, Supply Chain, HR, Marketing, and Platform breakout tracks with sessions featuring speakers from dozens of partners and customers who discussed how Anaplan has solved a wide array of planning challenges for their businesses.

Describing his organization’s experience, Andrew Price, Group Financial Controller at Legal & General, commented, “We were drowning in spreadsheets. We wanted something that could make our planning cycle as seamless as possible, allowing us to actually gain insight into our data. When looking to find a tool that could do this, it became clear that Anaplan was the best option.”

Tom Crockford, Finance Director at Brakes, added, “We have not simply streamlined our planning process, we’ve made it far more effective. That’s the real power of Anaplan: everyone can look at one set of the data, they can all talk about the actions and the roll up on the consolidation is automatic, rather than hundreds of spreadsheets.”

Ahmed Berrahal, responsible for social performance management and HR at Lacoste Group, also praised Anaplan’s ability to simplify and improve processes: “Anaplan allows us to share the same vision on workforce and payroll at the group level. With Anaplan’s ability to easily publish a dashboard, we were able to implement new HR indicators. They are shared globally. The information that we use is now much more accurate.”

Anaplan Chief Marketing Officer Grant Halloran said, “The Anaplan Hub15 global tour was a huge success in that we connected with over 3,000 planning professionals who are now under more pressure than ever to be agile in their planning processes.”

The Anaplan Hub15 global tour was hosted in San Francisco, Singapore, Stockholm, Amsterdam, London, Moscow, and Paris. Full highlights from the tour, including sponsors and agenda, can be found at Next year, Anaplan Hub16 will kick off in San Francisco on May 10. For more information, click here.
