Territory Planning and Quota Management delivers increased sales performance by giving users the ability to easily reconcile top-down targets and bottom-up quotas, ensuring optimal coverage and complete visibility on how goals are set and will be reached.

The result is a single, living plan, where each sales role has a tailored view of his/her activities in order to execute against actuals, score the potential of accounts, and leverage real-time analytics to optimize and course correct. Sales reps, district managers, and sales leadership can see which accounts make up their patch and what the account level targets are by product and service lines. Using Anaplan’s built-in planning intelligence and in-memory data engine, HyperBlock™, sales operations teams can easily manage disruption, model “what-if” scenarios, and immediately understand the impact of changes.
