Leading Philippine Oil Company Adopts Anaplan Platform
Singapore – 17 September 2014 – Anaplan‘s business planning and execution platform has been selected by Petron for its sales and demand forecasting processes.
Petron initially embarked on the Anaplan Challenge, where it provided its existing demand planning data models to the Anaplan team who built prototype applications in Anaplan in only a couple of days, complete with fully functional sample processes and reports – at no cost to the customer.
Since taking the Anaplan Challenge, Petron’s Anaplan users have since streamlined their planning and demand forecast processes with Anaplan, without any additional technical assistance.
“Petron’s decision to implement Anaplan is proof that successful and innovative companies in Asia are searching for more powerful way to plan and execute core business functions in real time,” said Samir Neji, Managing Director, Anaplan Asia, “With the power of Anaplan, we are confident Petron will continue to stay ahead of critical business events, rapidly model potential impacts and course correct on the fly.”
Anaplan’s cloud-based platform is built on the patented, in-memory HyperBlock™ data engine delivering unparalleled immediacy, flexibility and scale. Anaplan unifies data from across the organization in a secure cloud platform and interconnects plans to deliver unprecedented trust and visibility into the planning process.
In the Philippines, Petron captures nearly 40 percent of the total market and operates a retail network of more than 2,200 service stations – larger than two of its closest competitors combined. It is the market leader in all major trades including Reseller, Industrial, and Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG).
