1BlaBlaCarPreel, Sebastien, CFOBlablaCar-ReferenzwebseiteAls BlaBlaCar vor drei Jahren ein kleines französisches Start-up-Unternehmen war, reichte Excel aus - wir waren nur 30 Mitarbeiter in drei Ländern. Doch als BlaBlaCar in eine Phase hohen Wachstums eintrat, sah sich das Finanzteam mit neuen Herausforderungen konfrontiert. Anaplan erwies sich als eine Lösung, die mit uns skalierte, als wir in 22 Länder mit 30 Millionen Mitgliedern und einem Team von 500 Mitarbeitern expandierten.When BlaBlaCar was a small French start-up three years ago, Excel was enough—we were only 30 people in three countries. But when BlaBlaCar entered into a phase of high growth, the finance team faced new challenges. Anaplan turned out to be a solution that scaled with us as we expanded in 22 countries with 30 million members and to a team of 500 people.12.02.2018

3BlaBlaCarGrimbert, David, Finance ControllerBlablaCar-ReferenzwebseiteFrüher haben wir mit vielen verschiedenen Excel-Tabellen gearbeitet, und es war sehr schwierig, mit allen Mitarbeitern im Unternehmen zusammenzuarbeiten. Aber mit Anaplan können wir viele verschiedene Zukunftsszenarien schnell hochrechnen. Wir sind jetzt in der Lage, sehr detaillierte Prognosen, Finanzplanungen und Analysen durchzuführen.We used to work with a lot of different Excel spreadsheets, and it was very difficult to collaborate with everybody in the company. But with Anaplan, we can project many different future scenarios quickly and rapidly. We are now able to do super-detailed forecasting, financial planning, and analysis.13.02.2018

5BlaBlaCarBoudec, Theiss, Head of Business IntelligenceBlablaCar-ReferenzwebseiteDas Gute an Anaplan ist, je mehr man es benutzt, desto besser ist es. Es würde also sehr lange dauern, um mich davon zu überzeugen, wieder zu den umständlichen Excel-Dateien zurückzukehren, die ich vorher hatte.What’s good about Anaplan is the more you use it, the better you are at it. So now it would take a lot of time to try and convince me to switch back to the cumbersome Excel files that I had before.12.02.2018
6BlaBlaCarBoudec, Theiss, Head of Business IntelligenceBlablaCar-ReferenzwebseiteMit Anaplan ist die Zusammenarbeit viel einfacher, so dass viele Teams an diesem Prozess beteiligt sind - das Finanzteam, das Business-Intelligence-Team, alle Länderteams, die Marketing-Teams - also ein sehr langer Prozess. Und da alle zur gleichen Zeit am gleichen Werkzeug arbeiten, hilft es wirklich, sich schnell an eine Endversion der Finanzplanung anzunähern. Mit Anaplan ist es uns gelungen, die Zeit, die wir mit dem Aufbau unserer Annahmen verbracht haben, auf einen Bruchteil zu reduzieren, so dass Anaplan uns die Flexibilität gegeben hat, unsere Annahmen zu umgehen und unsere Geschäftsstrategie zu entwickeln. Es hilft auch bei der Wartung, und wir haben viel mehr automatisierte Prozesse, um unsere Finanzberichte und Geschäftsberichte zu erstellen.With Anaplan, it’s much easier to collaborate, so lots of teams are involved in that process—the finance team, the business intelligence team, all the country teams, the marketing teams—so it’s a very long process. And by working all at the same time on the same tool, it really helps converge quickly to an end version of the financial forecast. Now with Anaplan, we managed to reduce our time spent on building our assumptions by a lot, so Anaplan has brought us the agility to work around our assumptions and to craft our business strategy. It also helps with maintenance, and we have much more automated processes to come up with our financial reporting and business reporting, so it helps a lot with that as well.12.02.2018
7Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG)Douwens, Enrico, FinanzdirektorRWG FallstudieBei der Auswahl der Plattform für unser neues Planungs-, Budgetierungs- und Reporting-Projekt war von entscheidender Bedeutung, dass der Anbieter verfügbar, unterstützend und lokal vor Ort tätig ist.12.02.2018
8Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG)Douwens, Enrico, FinanzdirektorRWG FallstudieNach einer umfassenden Marktanalyse kamen zwei von vier Systemen in die Endauswahl: Anaplan und Tagetik. Letztendlich entschieden wir uns für die Anaplan-Lösung aufgrund der Flexibilität, Agilität und der webbasierten Anwenderschnittstelle. Damit erreichten wir volle Akzeptanz im gesamten Unternehmen, und konnten auch jene Nicht-Finanz-Manager, die allergisch auf Excel-Tabellen reagieren, überzeugen.12.02.2018
9Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG)Douwens, Enrico, FinanzdirektorRWG FallstudieWir wollten aktiv an der Einführung teilnehmen, damit wir das Tool und seine Möglichkeiten auch wirklich verstehen. Wir unterteilten die Systemeinführung in kleine Projektphasen. Für jede Phase nahmen wir uns ein bis zwei Wochen pro Monat Zeit, um mit unseren Beratern jeweils einen Aspekt des Projekts abzuarbeiten. Indem wir das Projekt in Teilprojekte stückelten, lernten wir das Tool besser verstehen und konnten gleichzeitig unser Tagesgeschäft fortführen. Darüber hinaus erlaubt es uns Anaplan heute, unsere Kollegen aus anderen Businessbereichen noch umfassender zu unterstützen - über den eigentlichen Standard-Planungs- und Budgetierungsprozess hinaus.12.02.2018
10Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG)Douwens, Enrico, FinanzdirektorRWG FallstudieDank Anaplan können wir unser Business jetzt proaktiv managen und müssen nicht mehr manuell zahlreiche Excel-Tabellen durchforsten. Wir sind nun in der Lage, klar und eindeutig über die verschiedenen Businessbereiche hinweg zu kommunizieren. Informationssilos in Abteilungen wurden dadurch beseitigt, und wir alle arbeiten jetzt mit einer einzigen gültigen Datenquelle.14.02.2018
11Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG)Douwens, Enrico, FinanzdirektorRWG FallstudieIn der Logistik muss eine Fülle von Daten verwaltet und verstanden werden, damit wir unser Business optimieren können. Mit Anaplan haben wir jetzt einen Einblick in Echtzeit in unsere fnanzielle Performance und das Berichtswesen, einschließlich Budgetierung und anderer relevanter Kennzahlen. Mit einem einzigen Dashboard von Anaplan kann ich nun Fragen der Geschäftsleitung beantworten, ohne Stunden mit komplexen Zahlenanalysen zubringen zu müssen. Und was das Wichtigste ist, unsere Manager sind nun in der Lage und ermächtigt, ihr eigenes Business und ihre jeweiligen Budgets zu managen, ohne dass sie von meinem Team abhängig sind.12.02.2018
12Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG)Douwens, Enrico, FinanzdirektorRWG FallstudieWir setzen neue Maßstäbe für die Containerlogistik-Branche – in gleichem Maße wie Anaplan neue Maßstäbe bei der Unternehmensplanung setzt. Genau deshalb passen wir gut zusammen – eine vollautomatisierte Finanzlösung für ein vollautomatisiertes Container-Terminal. Keiner von uns hat Angst davor, neue Möglichkeiten auszureizen oder Risiken einzugehen, um die richtige Lösung zu fnden. Wir sind davon überzeugt, dass wir gemeinsam mit Anaplan unseren Erfolg fortschreiben und weiter ausbauen werden.12.02.2018
13RSADinwiddie, Andrew, Head of Performance ManagementRSAConnected planning in pursuit of “bestin-class”Wir haben 95 Prozent unserer Zeit damit verbracht, die Antworten in einer Tabellenkalkulation zusammenzufassen, sodass wir die Ergebnisse nicht analysieren konnten und keinen Mehrwert für die getroffenen Geschäftsentscheidungen hatten. Das war das zentrale Problem, das wir mit einer neuen Plattform lösen wollten.We spent 95 percent of our time just getting the answer together in a spreadsheet, so we weren’t able to analyse the results or add value to the business decisions being made. That was a key facet we wanted to address in a new platform.18.02.2018
14RSADinwiddie, Andrew, Head of Performance ManagementRSAConnected planning in pursuit of “bestin-class”Wir haben potenziellen Lieferanten drei Fragen gestellt. Die erste nach der Einfachheit der Bedienung, die zweite nach der Implementierungszeit, und die dritte war, ob mein Team das System zukünftig eigenständig betreiben könnte.We asked potential suppliers three questions. One was ease of use, the second was time to implement, and the third was whether my team could own the system going forward.18.02.2018
15RSADinwiddie, Andrew, Head of Performance ManagementRSAConnected planning in pursuit of “bestin-class”Wir konnten die Anaplan-Plattform innerhalb von fünf Wochen implementieren, was bei den anderen Produkten völlig undenkbar gewesen wäre.We were able to implement the Anaplan platform within five weeks, which, when we looked at other products, was night-and day different.18.02.2018
16RSADinwiddie, Andrew, Head of Performance ManagementRSAConnected planning in pursuit of “bestin-class”Wir sind in der Lage, das System selbst zu entwickeln und im Zeitablauf weiter zu verbessern.We’re able to develop the system ourselves and grow it as we move forward.18.02.2018
17RSADinwiddie, Andrew, Head of Performance ManagementRSAConnected planning in pursuit of “bestin-class”Das ist der eigentliche Nutzen der Plattform. Wir können die Leute von der Spreadsheet-Konsolidierung erlösen und stattdessen besten Service für unsere Kunden liefern.That’s the real value of the platform. We’re able to move people away from consolidating spreadsheets to being out delivering the best service for our customers.14.02.2018
18RSADinwiddie, Andrew, Head of Performance ManagementRSAConnected planning in pursuit of “bestin-class”In meiner früheren Beratungstätigkeit hatte ich stets die Probleme der Kunden kennengelernt und nach Lösungen und Schlüsselfaktoren für Veränderungen gesucht. Und das ist auch genau der Ansatz, den wir mit der Anaplan-Plattform verfolgt haben.Previously, with my background in consulting, it was all about coming in and understanding the problems of your clients, but also looking for solutions and key levers for change. And that’s very much the approach we have taken with the Anaplan platform.18.02.2018
19RSADinwiddie, Andrew, Head of Performance ManagementRSAConnected planning in pursuit of “bestin-class”Ein großartiges Beispiel dafür, wie Anaplan bei RSA vernetzte Planung ermöglicht hat, ist die Personaleinsatzplanung, woran früher ein Team von 50 Mitarbeitern mit überwiegend geringer Wertschöpfung arbeitete. "Sie verbrachten viel zu viel Zeit mit Kalkulationstabellen, und wenn sie schließlich die Ergebnisse anwenden wollten, waren sie schon veraltet."A great example of how Anaplan has enabled connected planning in RSA is in workforce planning, where previously there was a team of 50 people doing mainly low value–add work. "They were spending far too much time in spreadsheets, and ultimately, when they went to the business with the answer, it was already out of date."12.02.2018
20RSADinwiddie, Andrew, Head of Performance ManagementRSAConnected planning in pursuit of “bestin-class”Ich denke, die Möglichkeiten sind endlos. Als nächstes wollen wir Zero-based Budgeting, Prozesskostenrechnung und Steuermodellierung implementieren. Das wird dem Unternehmen ohne große Restrukturierungsprogramme von Jahr zu Jahr kontinuierliche Produktivitätsverbesserungen ermöglichen.I think the possibilities are endless, Our next endeavors include implementing zero-based budgeting, activity-based costing, and tax modeling, which will provide the company with continuous year-on-year productivity improvements without big restructuring programs.18.02.2018
21United AirlinesHagen, Cato, Senior Finance ManagerUnited Airlines ReferenzwebseiteBevor wir Anaplan bekamen, haben wir Prognosen und Budgetierungen mit Excel-Modellen durchgeführt - und das war unglaublich aufwändig, denn in unserem Konzern haben wir neben den Flugzeugkosten im Grunde genommen Ausgaben auf allen Flughäfen, zu denen United fliegt.Before we got Anaplan, we were doing forecast and budgeting using Excel models—and that was very painful because in our group, we are basically dealing with expenses that we have at all airports that United is flying to, except for the planes themselves.18.02.2018
22United AirlinesHagen, Cato, Senior Finance ManagerUnited Airlines ReferenzwebseiteIn der Vergangenheit dauerte es sehr lange, einen Monat abzuschließen, die Zahlen hochzurechnen und mögliche Abweichungen zu entdecken. Und bis wir mit den Leuten über ihre Finanzperformance und das laufende Geschäft sprechen konnten, war das Monatsende schon erreicht. Um noch etwas zu korrigieren, waren sie dann schon einen Monat zu spät.In the past, we would have to wait to close the month, roll up the numbers, and try to figure out variances. And when we talked to people about their financial performance and the operation, it would already be the end of the month. So anytime that they had the ability to make any corrections, they were already a month late. But with Anaplan, as soon as the books are closed for the previous months and we loaded in the actuals, we are able to proceed and actually get the information to our operational partners earlier so they can make course-corrections faster. Before Anaplan, there could be hundreds of files and just keeping track of that is a nightmare. Even worse is if you have an formula error, you have to fix hundreds of files. Or if we had a change—for instance, if we had a new plane type—we had to change that in so many different files. So we spent a lot of time doing process work, just maintaining files, making sure the numbers are right in Excel instead of doing more value-add12.02.2018
23United AirlinesHagen, Cato, Senior Finance ManagerUnited Airlines ReferenzwebseiteAnaplan ist wie Excel auf Steroiden. Aber es ist mehr als das. Sie kombinieren die Einfachheit in Excel, um Formeln und Modelle zu erstellen, und mit diesem großartigen Kollaborationswerkzeug machen Sie sie alle an einem Ort, haben aber dennoch eine dezentrale Art und Weise, Informationen zu erhalten und diese sofort zusammenzufassen.Anaplan is like Excel on steroids. But it is more than that though. You are combining the ease in Excel to make formulas and models, and with this great collaboration tool, you make them all in one place but still have a decentralized way of getting information and getting that instantly rolled up.18.02.2018
24United AirlinesKarantonis, John, Manager, FP&AUnited Airlines ReferenzwebseiteWir nutzen Anaplan bereits jetzt für unsere Prognosen und Budgetierungen sowie für das Abweichungsreporting. Anaplan ersetzt die Zeit, die wir für die Verwaltung all dieser Excel-Dateien benötigt haben - insbesondere für einen Stationsleiter, der einmal im Jahr alle Informationen, die er für ein Budget hat, ausfüllen muss. Allerdings haben sie höchstwahrscheinlich vergessen, wie es letztes Jahr gemacht wurde. Es wird also viel zusätzliche Zeit in Anspruch nehmen, um das einmal im Jahr zu tun. Jetzt mit Anaplan,[sie füllen ein wenig Informationen aus] jeden Monat, wenn sie neue Informationen bekommen. Wir sind der Meinung, dass dies ein wesentlich reibungsloserer Prozess ist und den Sendern viel Zeit erspart.We are using Anaplan right now to do our forecasting and budgeting, as well as variance reporting. Anaplan is replacing the time it has taken us to manage all those Excel files going back and forth—particularly for a station manager, who once a year has to fill out all information they have for a budget. However, they most likely have forgotten how it was done last year. So it will take them a lot of extra time to do that once a year. Now with Anaplan, [they fill in a little bit of information] every month as they get new information. We think that is a much smoother process and saving the stations a lot of time as well.18.02.2018
25United AirlinesKarantonis, John, Manager, FP&AUnited Airlines ReferenzwebseiteThe way that I would describe Anaplan is its freedom. And when I say freedom, you get a blank slate, you get to be an artist, you get to create something from nothing and develop it, you get to learn from it, and you are able to develop a different type of model. So you get to think in that third dimension and that’s what Anaplan truly is. It’s talking about three-dimensional planning. The way that we connect our plans in Anaplan with our operational execution is mainly by using Anaplan as a one-stop shop for our operational partners. Since it’s accessible if you have an Internet connection, that’s really all you need. It’s very easy to give anyone access immediately, and it is controlled by the finance team, which is truly beneficial. We now are able to inform our partners in the operational field and find out what they really need to know in order to make course-corrections. We are able to structure [our model] so that our operational partners can immediately go to Anaplan, click on12.02.2018
26United AirlinesKarantonis, John, Manager, FP&AUnited Airlines ReferenzwebseiteAnaplan will replace quite a bit of man hours. We are hoping that maybe we can save up to month and a half to two months of process work budget and forecast combined, and enable advanced decision-making. I see great, great strength in the future with Anaplan at United Airlines.12.02.2018
27Box Inc.Chapello, Andrew, Product Manager of Business ApplicationsBox ReferenzwebseiteWir hatten ein altes Excel®-Finanzmodell. Das war so etwas wie Dr. Frankensteins Monster. Es war sehr groß, brauchte ein paar Minuten, um es zu öffnen. Und es gab ein paar hundert verschiedene Versionen, die überall verteilt waren. Wir wollten unbedingt die Nutzug dieser gewaltigen Excel-Datei aus unserem Tagesgeschäft verbannen.We had an ancient Excel® financial model that was sort of like Dr. Frankenstein’s monster. It was very large, took a few minutes to open. There were a couple hundred different versions sitting all over the place. One of our objectives was to eliminate the usage of that massive Excel file from our day-to-day business operations.12.02.2018
28Box Inc.Chapello, Andrew, Product Manager of Business ApplicationsBox ReferenzwebseiteWe first needed a cloud-based tool. Being able to get all users to collaborate in one version of a plan, at once, was really important. Then, as we were going through evaluating providers, one of the key differentiators for Anaplan was its in-memory computing.12.02.2018
29Box Inc.Chapello, Andrew, Product Manager of Business ApplicationsBox ReferenzwebseiteWir benötigten für die Implementierung ungefähr einen Monat.We were able to do the implementation within about a month. We brought along Anaplanners in the entire implementation so they were building alongside everyone else. That joint implementations process where everyone understood what was going on—we were being thoughtful about what we were building and how we are building it—was really important.14.02.2018
30Box Inc.Chapello, Andrew, Product Manager of Business ApplicationsBox ReferenzwebseiteUnd dann für alle anderen Benutzer, die am Anfang vielleicht nicht Teil des Builds waren, stellten wir sicher, dass wir Schulungsmaterialien entwickeln, Fragen und Antworten haben, eine Politik der offenen Tür haben, um Fragen zu den Dingen stellen zu können, aber in Wirklichkeit haben wir festgestellt, dass die Adoption sich selbst angetrieben hat.And then for all the other users who maybe were not a part of the build in the beginning, we made sure to develop training materials, have a Q&A, have an open-door policy around being able to ask questions around things, but really, we found that adoption drove itself.18.02.2018
31Box Inc.Chapello, Andrew, Product Manager of Business ApplicationsBox Referenzwebseite(Frei) Wir haben von unserer monatlichen Planungszeit Tage eingespart, und die Abstimmung zwischen Finanz- und Buchhaltungsteams wurde enorm verbessert.On a month-to-month basis, we are saving days and being able to consolidate our financial forecasting compared with their actuals. So there is an operational improvement there. Also, the alignment between our finance and accounting teams has been astronomical.12.02.2018
32Box Inc.Chapello, Andrew, Product Manager of Business ApplicationsBox ReferenzwebseiteThe most surprising thing that happened to me post-implementation was I had users coming to me and asking, “Can I use Anaplan for other things? I have this use case that I think would fit in with the tool, is that something that we can roll out?” That was something that you don’t see a whole lot in other tools. Having a product that users are excited about and want to be more integrated into their day-to-day jobs was really exciting.12.02.2018
33Box Inc.Chapello, Andrew, Product Manager of Business ApplicationsBox ReferenzwebseiteWe are going to look at two major areas for growth. One is growth and one is depth. In terms of growth horizontally, I think we are going to move into more sales planning and being able to link that with finance. And then in terms of depth, we would really like to get into deeper FP&A use cases to be able to model some of the more predictable cost.12.02.2018
34Starwood Waypoint HomesMartinez, Alfonso, Finance ManagerStarwood-ReferenzwebseiteWe are in the single-family residence space. It’s a simple business, but has a lot of complex parts. We needed a tool to be able to provide fast reporting, house a lot of data, the ability for us to use the reporting quickly for a lot of analysis, and to develop our robust budgeting, forecasting, modeling. And the current status that we had made it virtually impossible to do all the things that we needed to do in real time.12.02.2018
35Starwood Waypoint HomesMartinez, Alfonso, Finance ManagerStarwood-ReferenzwebseiteAnaplan was, across the board, the best solution for us in terms of data structuring, the ability to manipulate, its multidimensionality—everyone uses multidimensionality, but I think Anaplan is above and beyond their competitors. A big thing for me personally was their customer service upfront with the proof of concept, and we felt that that was a good leading indicator of the type of customer service we would get once we contracted with Anaplan.12.02.2018
36Starwood Waypoint HomesMartinez, Alfonso, Finance ManagerStarwood-ReferenzwebseiteVor Anaplan benutzten wir Excel und unser eigenes ERP-Softwaretool, aber in erster Linie war es Excel. Irgendwann wurde es dann einfach zu viel: Es gab zu viele Versionen, zu viele Zellen, zu viele Formeln, usw.. Deshalb bestand immer die Gefahr, dass es abstürzen und man Daten verlieren könnte.Prior to Anaplan, we used Excel and our own software tool for our ERP but it was primarily Excel. But at some point, it just become too many: there was too many versions, too many cells, too many formulas, etc., and so there was always a risk that it could crash, you could lose data.12.02.2018
37Starwood Waypoint HomesMartinez, Alfonso, Finance ManagerStarwood-ReferenzwebseiteIm Moment verwenden wir Anaplan für unser Reporting. Wir sind in der Lage, das Berichtspaket damit sehr schnell zu erstellen, jedenfalls im Vergleich zu anderen Dingen, für deren Produktion wir Tage brauchen.Right now, we are using Anaplan for our reporting purposes we are able to produce that reporting package very quickly in comparison to things that take us days to produce.18.02.2018
38Starwood Waypoint HomesMartinez, Alfonso, Finance ManagerStarwood-ReferenzwebseiteAnaplan ist wesentlich schneller. Diese Plattform ermöglicht es uns außerdem, alle unsere Gedanken, unsere Planung, unsere unternehmensweiten Strategien in einem Tool zu zentralisieren, auf das die verschiedenen Beteiligten aller Bereiche zugreifen können - und die Plattform wird es uns ermöglichen, auch langfristig gut zusammenzuarbeiten und unser Geschäft kontinuierlich zu verbessern.Anaplan is significantly faster and this platform allows us to centralize all our thoughts, our planning, our companywide strategies with one tool that is accessible to the different stakeholders in each area—and the platform will allow us to be able to collaborate and improve our business in long run.18.02.2018
39BarclaycardThiara, Jas, Head of Planning and Workforce ManagementBarclaycard WebseiteIn der Vergangenheit haben wir bei Barclaycard in Callcenter-Umgebungen hauptsächlich Excel® benutzt. Dann wurde uns bewusst, dass wir täglich auf 39 Millionen verschiedene Zellen-Referenzen angewiesen sind, um unseren Personalbedarf zu ermitteln.Historically, in call center environments at Barclaycard, we have primarily used Excel®. We became aware that we have 39 million different cell references that we have to use daily to help determine our staffing requirements.12.02.2018
40BarclaycardThiara, Jas, Head of Planning and Workforce ManagementBarclaycard WebseiteDue to the size of the bank and the constant change that we find ourselves in, there is a constant need to provide strategic insight and scenario modeling—and that was frightfully difficult. So that’s what really drove the decision to move to the Anaplan platform.12.02.2018
41BarclaycardThiara, Jas, Head of Planning and Workforce ManagementBarclaycard WebseiteRecently, we’ve had to undertake a significant piece of work to understand, on the back of structural reform in the U.K., how we organize the bank. With the introduction of the Anaplan tool and working with our HR partners, we should be able to understand that implicitly in real time.12.02.2018
42BarclaycardThiara, Jas, Head of Planning and Workforce ManagementBarclaycard WebseiteOne of the biggest wins for us was the space that it now creates for our analysts to really start to analyze. In our environment, what we’re expected to do is not just match resourcing to demand through the course of the day within our operations. But it’s also to understand efficiency of that workforce and also the different drivers of demand.12.02.2018
43BarclaycardThiara, Jas, Head of Planning and Workforce ManagementBarclaycard WebseiteOnce we understand why customers behave, it should then allow us to forecast more accurately. What does that then drive for the customer? It means that we can service our customers quicker and more effectively.12.02.2018
44BarclaycardThiara, Jas, Head of Planning and Workforce ManagementBarclaycard WebseiteWe’re now looking to completely revolutionize our planning processes for contact center environments using the Anaplan platform. This will potentially offer a significant opportunity to focus ourselves on adding value and driving better commercial decisions, and to significantly streamline our existing processes.12.02.2018
45BarclaycardThiara, Jas, Head of Planning and Workforce ManagementBarclaycard WebseiteMy expectation is that we’ll use this as a sell to the rest of the bank—how we can connect planning across the entire bank through HR, through finance, through my team, and planning as well, to make real effective and cross-operational business decisions.12.02.2018
46BarclaycardThiara, Jas, Head of Planning and Workforce ManagementBarclaycard WebseiteSo it absolutely goes without saying that the Anaplan platform and delivery of it within Barclays will significantly change both my role and the role of my team. But it will allow us culturally to move into helping the business to drive better decisions.12.02.2018
47RSADinwiddie, Andrew, Head of Performance ManagementRSAConnected planning in pursuit of “bestin-class”Wir konnten unseren Planungsprozess von neun Monaten auf fünf Monate verkürzen und wollen ihn in diesem Jahr in einen dreimonatigen Planungszyklus überführen, der für unser Unternehmen absolut revolutionär wäre.We’ve been able to cut down our planning process from being nine months long to being five months long, and we’re looking this year to move it to a three-month planning cycle, which will be revolutionary for our company.12.02.2018
48Del MonteDe Castro, Steve, Director of Supply Chain FinanceDel Monte ReferenzwebseiteWährend andere Anbieter einen 9- bis 12-monatigen Zeitrahmen nannten, benötigte die Implementierung des zentralen Finanzmodells für die Lieferkette in Anaplan nur sieben Tage konzentrierter Arbeit und weniger als zwei Monate für Training, Datenintegration und Feststellung aller Anforderungen.While other vendors quoted a 9- to 12-month timeline, the implementation of the core supply chain finance model in Anaplan required only seven days of dedicated work, and less than two months of training, data integration, and requirements gathering.12.02.2018
49Del MonteDe Castro, Steve, Director of Supply Chain FinanceDel Monte ReferenzwebseiteDer Budgetierungs- und Planungsprozess verkürzte sich von 2 - 3 Wochen auf 2 - 3 Tage.The budgeting and planning process time cut from 2-3 weeks to 2-3 days.12.02.2018
50Del MonteDe Castro, Steve, Director of Supply Chain FinanceDel Monte ReferenzwebseiteWith Anaplan, it’s really just like Excel on steroids. The multidimensionality of it, and then the fact that you can change your variable and everything automatically changes, it’s a big help for us because often times we have changes in the planning process where just key variables are being changed. When we were using BPC, if we had a variable change, we had to rewind the whole thing—so run volume allocation, run calculation because the changes were not dynamic and that’s where the productivity as well is coming from, from using Anaplan.12.02.2018
51Del MonteDe Castro, Steve, Director of Supply Chain FinanceDel Monte ReferenzwebseiteWe just completed the budget cycle, and obviously because of the El Nino phenomenon that we are facing and performance in the past, we have issues and we have to prioritize some of our product allocations. And now because we have Anaplan, when we run our first scenario, we saw that certain areas were not profitable and we went back right away to our sales people and our channel team and our logistics team to inform them about this mismatch—and right away they knew that they needed to adjust.12.02.2018
52Del MonteDel Rosario, RK, Supply Chain Planning ManagerDel Monte ReferenzwebseiteWe’re using Anaplan to manage more than 270 finished goods products, and more than 800 raw and packaging materials. And this flows across more than 18 plant locations nationwide.12.02.2018
53Del MonteDel Rosario, RK, Supply Chain Planning ManagerDel Monte Referenzwebseite[The Anaplan platform] integrated all planning processes, from the demand planning side to the distribution replenishment, to the production scheduling, all the way down to the material resource planning. Before, we were all doing this in separate processes and using legacy systems, [with] different Excel versions across all the processes.12.02.2018
54Del MonteDel Rosario, RK, Supply Chain Planning ManagerDel Monte ReferenzwebseiteIn managing our inventories across different various locations, there are usually [disconnects]; for example, the production planning processes [don’t align with] the deployment processes. Whenever there are misalignments in the planning process, it usually leads to lost sales opportunities or excess inventories.12.02.2018
55Del MonteDel Rosario, RK, Supply Chain Planning ManagerDel Monte ReferenzwebseiteAnaplan gave us speed and agility in reacting to all volatilities. I think that’s what we need nowadays, especially [considering] how fast our customer requirements are evolving.12.02.2018
56Del MonteDel Rosario, RK, Supply Chain Planning ManagerDel Monte ReferenzwebseiteIt used to take us five days to react to demand changes. Now, with Anaplan, it takes us less than five minutes to come up with the necessary adjustments in production.12.02.2018
57Del MonteDel Rosario, RK, Supply Chain Planning ManagerDel Monte ReferenzwebseiteIt also enabled collaboration across all the supply chain members, putting all key [stakeholders] under one platform and converging all efforts toward delivering the goods to our customers.12.02.2018
58Del MonteDel Rosario, RK, Supply Chain Planning ManagerDel Monte ReferenzwebseiteAnaplan brought us to the point where we can take our supply chain further in the future. It automated all our legacy processes, all our Excel spreadsheets, and brought us all together on one platform. It opened up lots of opportunities for us. And it enables us to do the transition for the future.12.02.2018
59Tableau Inc.Albertson, Wyatt, Senior Manager of Sales Strategy and PlanningTableau ReferenzwebseiteI was living in spreadsheet hell, more or less. One critical criteria when we were looking for a planning solution was that my team and the business retain control over the solution.12.02.2018
60Tableau Inc.Albertson, Wyatt, Senior Manager of Sales Strategy and PlanningTableau ReferenzwebseiteWe were looking for a tool that would allow us to connect other applications, data, and kind of unify it in a way that will allow us to keep all of our systems that are used for analytics and execution.12.02.2018
61Tableau Inc.Albertson, Wyatt, Senior Manager of Sales Strategy and PlanningTableau ReferenzwebseiteOur first rollout of Anaplan was for sales planning, headcount planning, quota, and territory assignment. We were able to do our own implementation in 35 business days and maintaining our old plan in parallel to prove out that what we were building was correct. So it was mind blowing how fast we were able to get up and running.12.02.2018
62Tableau Inc.Albertson, Wyatt, Senior Manager of Sales Strategy and PlanningTableau ReferenzwebseiteWe have a lot of different market segments, so we are dealing with a lot of sales people and overlapping geography covering different types of consumers, so there is a lot of complexities there to manage. We were looking for a tool that allows us to manage all of those complex mappings and in a way that ultimately would allow us to kind of set it and forget it.12.02.2018
63Tableau Inc.Albertson, Wyatt, Senior Manager of Sales Strategy and PlanningTableau ReferenzwebseiteThe most powerful element of Anaplan is that our sales plan is no longer a black box. Our sales organization will have real-time access to their sales plan. Before that, every time there was a question, there was a call or an email.12.02.2018
64Tableau Inc.Albertson, Wyatt, Senior Manager of Sales Strategy and PlanningTableau ReferenzwebseiteI don’t know if I could survive more than a couple of planning cycles without it, so it’s a friend. It gives me longevity in my role.12.02.2018

66LexmarkButler, Bret, Business Architect, WW Sales & Service TeamLexmark simplifies territiry management and forecaA lot of times, companies find that they have great systems in place like Salesforce for CRM and SAP for ERP, but these systems are at opposite ends of the business process. Companies then discover that they’re connecting the processes and the data with spreadsheets.12.02.2018
67LexmarkButler, Bret, Business Architect, WW Sales & Service TeamLexmark simplifies territiry management and forecaMit unserem alten Gebietsmanagement-Verfahren haben wir einen Monat gebraucht, nur um die Daten zusammenzustellen. Dann benötigten wir einen weiteren halben Monat, um sie in Kalkulationstabellen zu überführen, alles zusammenzufassen und schließlich unsere gesamte Kundenliste weltweit per E-Mail zu versenden – von den Sicherheitsproblemen gar nicht zu reden. Mit Anaplan haben wir nun diese gesamte „Front-End-Datengymnastik“ abgeschafft. Die einfache Benutzeroberfläche erleichtert die Erfassung der Verkäuferdaten erheblich und ermöglicht dem Verkaufsteam ganz neue Einsichten. ...In our old territory management process, we took a month to assemble the data. Then we took another half a month to put it into spreadsheets, cut it all up, and email our entire customer list globally—talk about a security concern. Now with Anaplan, we got rid of all the front-end data gymnastics and the simple user interface makes gathering sales input much easier, arming the sales team with more insight. Additionally, it’s easy to reassemble data and push it back—all that goes from weeks to seconds.12.02.2018

Vor der Einführung von Anaplan nutzten wir eine Mischung aus Excel und SAP BW – mit all den Fehlerrisiken von Excel und den Problemen bei der Verwendung derselben Dateien durch mehrere Mitarbeiter.When it comes to planning data, we have about 2 billion data combinations when we are doing a budget or forecast. Before we were using Anaplan, we were using a mix of Excel and SAP BW with all the disadvantages of Excel having a risk of error, inability to work with a group of users on the same data.12.02.2018

73Brussels AirlinesRentiers, Vanessa, VP Controlling and Business IntelligenceBrussels Airlines ReferenzwebseiteDer letzte Erfolg für uns ist, dass wir wirklich alle geschäftlichen Veränderungen in Anaplan umsetzen können. Wir beherrschen das Tool, wir können die Regeln der Datenmodelle in dem Tool selbstständig ändern, und wir können schnell handeln. Wenn also eine Simulation, eine neue Prognose oder eine neue Budgetberechnung für ein bestimmtes Unternehmensprojekt anstehen, sind wir in der Lage, sofort umzuschalten, das System so zu modellieren, wie wir wollen, und effiziente und schnelle Innovationen einzuführen.The last success for us is that we are able really to implement all business changes into Anaplan ourselves. We are mastering the tool, we can change ourselves the rules of the data models that are in the tool, and we really can act rapidly, so when we have to do a simulation, a new forecast, a new budget for a specific project of the total company, we are really able to change, to model the system the way we want and to make efficient and fast innovation.14.03.2018
74Brussels AirlinesRentiers, Vanessa, VP Controlling and Business IntelligenceBrussels Airlines ReferenzwebseiteSince Anaplan, we’ve cannot imagine going back to the previous set up we had. We are extremely satisfied about the tool and about the choice we made. Often on a daily basis, when we are working with Anaplan, we are wondering how we would have done this without Anaplan. We know that we can do even more with Anaplan and we are really looking forward to it.12.02.2018
75Hewlett-PackardBarsamian, Sue, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Indirect SalesHP ReferenzwebseiteVor Anaplan mussten wir immer genau nachhalten, wie wir zu den Ergebnissen gekommen waren. Das war ein Spreadsheet-basierter Prozess, und wenn alles wieder aufgerollt werden musste, waren wir nicht selten schon am Beginn des neuen Quartals angekommen, bis die Leute die kleinen Fehler im Verfahren korrigiert hatten.Before Anaplan, we were always looking at what actually got deployed in a rearview mirror. This was a spreadsheet-run exercise, and by the time that all got rolled back up, and people corrected minor errors along the way, we were usually at the beginning of Q2.13.02.2018
76Hewlett-PackardBarsamian, Sue, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Indirect SalesHP ReferenzwebseiteThe capabilities that we could get with Anaplan, frankly, exceeded our expectations and our own requirements for building a homegrown solution. It gave us an opportunity to stretch beyond the ideas that we had for quota deployment.14.02.2018
77Hewlett-PackardBarsamian, Sue, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Indirect SalesHP ReferenzwebseiteWe made the decision to deploy Anaplan across all of our businesses at the same time, which is really quite a challenge,” said Bob Slaby, Vice President Sales Operations, Hewlett-Packard. “But because we could stand up the solution quickly, train our people quickly, leverage resources across HP, across Anaplan, across service providers, we were able to deploy to hundreds of users in more than 50 countries within a matter of weeks.12.02.2018
78Hewlett-PackardBarsamian, Sue, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Indirect SalesHP ReferenzwebseiteWith Anaplan, we moved entirely away from this being a rearview mirror conversation,” said Barsamian. “We don’t even go live until we’re sure that our design is being deployed as expected and that we are comfortable with the way that quota is actually rolled out. I have been at HP eight years, and I have never seen a start of a year like we had this year, thanks to Anaplan.12.02.2018
79Hewlett-PackardBarsamian, Sue, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Indirect SalesHP ReferenzwebseiteThere is something about a sales letter that says, ‘This is what you need to go, go do it,’” said Barsamian. “And in the old days, when people waited sometimes eight weeks for a sales letter, you were way into the start of the year, and people were still unclear on what their objectives were.12.02.2018
80Hewlett-PackardBarsamian, Sue, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Indirect SalesHP ReferenzwebseiteWith Anaplan, we made it easier to deploy coverage and quota with complete transparency, improving sales targeting and performance” said Slaby. “I see all kinds of opportunities with Anaplan. We’ll have the ability to compare plans we set in Anaplan to actual performance, build models based on best practices, create simulations that help our businesses test assumptions, and select the best plan. Anaplan will help us move the sales planning process from art to science.12.02.2018
81MotorolaCate, Bill, Senior Director Global OperationsMotorola ReferenzwebseiteDer Nutzen Anaplans und die Funktionen, die uns wirklich begeistert haben, sind enorm vielfältig. Zuerst kam die nahtlose Integration mit Salesforce.com. Eine weitere, wirklich interessante Eigenschaft von Anaplan ist die durchgängige Transparenz der Daten. In Anaplan sind alle Daten und Modelle an einem einzigen Ort gespeichert. Deswegen können mehrere Benutzer in unterschiedlichen Unternehmensbereichen – sei es im Finanzwesen, im operativen Geschäft, im Vertrieb oder in der Lieferkette – gemeinsam an denselben Opportunities arbeiten. Ich denke, das ist die Funktionalität, die wir an der Anaplan-Implementierung und -Architektur am meisten lieben.The value that Anaplan brings and the features that really excited us are really many. The first was the seamless integration with Salesforce.com. The other really interesting set of features in Anaplan is the end-to-end transparency of the data. In Anaplan, all the data is in one place. It’s all modeled in one place, so that multiple users in different parts of the organization—whether it’s finance, or operations, or sales, or supply chain folks—they can all collaborate on opportunities together. So I think that’s the biggest feature that we love about the Anaplan implementation and architecture.12.02.2018
82MotorolaCate, Bill, Senior Director Global OperationsMotorola ReferenzwebseiteAls ich das Anaplan-Team traf, haben sie nicht nur mein Problem verstanden, sondern es auch so gelöst, dass ich dafür keine eigene IT-Umgebung aufbauen musste. Alles liegt in der Cloud. Wir brauchen nur unsere Verfahren zu definieren und uns anschließend mit ihnen zusammensetzen, um sie in der Cloud nachzubilden.When I met with the Anaplan team they not only understood my problem but resolved it in a way that I didn’t have to go build something in an IT environment. It’s in the cloud, it’s just about us determining what our process is, sitting down with them and building it with the cloud.13.02.2018
83MotorolaCate, Bill, Senior Director Global OperationsMotorola ReferenzwebseiteOur sales organization is comprised of approximately 2,000 selling roles that includes our direct sales people and our channel account managers—and because we have a very strong and powerful channel network of around 800 partners, that also includes our inside sales teams and some overlay teams that come from services and pre-sales engineers; all really important parts of the sales process.12.02.2018
84MotorolaCate, Bill, Senior Director Global OperationsMotorola ReferenzwebseiteOur forecast accuracy was very good, but the process to achieve that was very clunky and cumbersome and had many, many manual processes. I am sure like many of Anaplan’s other customers, we grew up over the years using spreadsheets and lots of phone calls and lots of emails to achieve this. We decided to focus on sales forecasting because we can drive significant efficiencies by doing it differently.12.02.2018
85MotorolaCate, Bill, Senior Director Global OperationsMotorola ReferenzwebseiteA unique need we had in forecasting is being able to do our revenue forecasting, which very few tools could do in a very efficient way. I know we can achieve accurate forecasting, and while that’s a stated direction of this project, our real core goal is to drive value for our sales organization. How do we simplify this process for the frontline sales person and the frontline sales manager so they don’t see this as yet another tool to use, and they don’t see it as homework?12.02.2018
86MotorolaCate, Bill, Senior Director Global OperationsMotorola ReferenzwebseiteSo if they can have pipeline discussions using this forecasting process that adds value to their ability to understand the composition of their pipeline, their deal velocity, their conversion rates, it changes the dynamics of that dialogue at the sales level.12.02.2018
87MotorolaCate, Bill, Senior Director Global OperationsMotorola ReferenzwebseiteIf I were to describe Anaplan, I would say you are a change agent. You are in a sweet spot.12.02.2018
88MotorolaCate, Bill, Senior Director Global OperationsMotorola ReferenzwebseiteMy specific challenge was fixing sales forecasting. I didn’t know who to turn to. I have looked at the analytics companies; they all say they did sales forecasting well, but they don’t really. I looked at the sales enablement companies. Great companies. We do business with a couple of them today. They say they do sales forecasting, they don’t. When I met with the Anaplan team they not only understood my problem but resolved it in a way that I didn’t have to go build something in an IT environment. It’s in the cloud, it’s just about us determining what our process is, sitting down with them and building it with the cloud. I think Anaplan is on the leading edge, and we are excited we found them.12.02.2018

Gewöhnlich dauert es Jahre bis zur Rückzahlung einer Investition, aber die Rendite dieses Projekts lässt sich in Monaten und barem Geld messen. Berücksichtigt man die nicht mehr benötigten Ressourcen und die gesparten IT-Kosten, so übersteigt der ROI sogar die 400 Prozent-Marke.The ROI is a no-brainer. I’m used to project paybacks measured in years, but this project’s return is measured in months on a cash basis. If you take account of the resources no longer required and the IT costs we have taken out, then the ROI is in excess of 400 percent.12.02.2018
91Intel Security GroupBayless, Bryan, VP GTM FinanceIntel ReferenzwebseiteEs wird nie wieder einen Konsolidierungsprozess geben. Die Daten werden direkt in das Modell eingegeben und in Echtzeit aktualisiert. Wir brauchen auch nicht mehr 24 bis 48 Stunden auf die Ergebnisse zu warten.There won’t be a consolidation process anymore. Data is entered directly into the model and updated in real-time. We don’t have to wait 24 to 48 hours to see the results either.12.02.2018
92Intel Security GroupBayless, Bryan, VP GTM FinanceIntel Success StoryOne of the biggest surprises of the project was my team’s adoption rate, i.e. just how easily they took to the Anaplan solution. The solution wasn’t forced on them – they just took to it very easily. I was expecting more push back.12.02.2018
93Intel Security GroupBayless, Bryan, VP GTM FinanceIntel Success StoryI was concerned that so much sensitive compensation information lived in spreadsheets. Based on constant audits and reviews, we were confident that people were getting paid accurately but the calculations were spread across 25+ finance and operations personnel based in different geographies around the world and it was difficult to consolidate, review, and approve commission related data in a timely fashion.12.02.2018
94Intel Security GroupBayless, Bryan, VP GTM FinanceIntel Success StoryI was not only worried about the integrity of the information but also our ability to scale up the operation in the face of growth. If we doubled our size would we end up managing 80 databases? So we needed to consider how we could improve the process to be more scalable as well as streamline communications with the sales teams and sales management through swifter review and approval of compensation targets, and more insightful analysis and reporting.12.02.2018
95Intel Security GroupBayless, Bryan, VP GTM FinanceIntel Success StoryIch war fasziniert, denn hier war ein Produkt, das jeder mit moderaten Tabellenkalkulationskenntnissen verstehen konnte. Die Logik war ähnlich wie bei Tabellenkalkulationen, aber es lag auf der Hand, dass man Modelle mit nahezu unbegrenzter Skalierbarkeit und Integrität erstellen konnte.I was intrigued because here was a product that anyone with moderate spreadsheet skills could understand. The logic wasn’t dissimilar from spreadsheets yet it was obvious one could build models with almost limitless scalability and integrity.14.02.2018
96Intel Security GroupBayless, Bryan, VP GTM FinanceIntel Success StoryEvery time we changed some metadata such as the country hierarchy or any one of the several compensation elements in one spreadsheet we had to ensure everyone updated their own spreadsheet as everyone was working in their files live, but invariably something got left out.12.02.2018
97Intel Security GroupBayless, Bryan, VP GTM FinanceIntel Success StoryIt was very intuitive and we could instantly see that the cut-over to a new system would be straightforward. We didn’t have the budget to spend on lengthy consultancy and training.12.02.2018
98Intel Security GroupBayless, Bryan, VP GTM FinanceIntel Success StoryAuf der Cloud-basierten Plattform arbeiten alle mit den selben Daten, sodass verschiedene Länder zusammenarbeiten können. Und das Modell wird sofort aktualisiert.Everybody on the cloud-based platform is working on the same data so that different countries can work together and the model is instantly updated. In the past personnel were reluctant to discuss process issues because the system was comprised of a series of disconnected spreadsheets and they didn’t necessarily know that their question or issue was shared by others. But now everybody willingly works together and somebody in Sydney can help a colleague in Slough because they share the same model.14.02.2018
99Intel Security GroupBayless, Bryan, VP GTM FinanceIntel Success StoryThe scalability of the model means that we can look at our recruitment plans at a much more granular level. It would have been impossible in a spreadsheet-based system. Personnel related expenses account for the majority of our cost base, so I would like to be able to do long range planning two or three years out linking top line performance and sales capacity to help optimize when and where we bring resources on board.12.02.2018
100Intel Security GroupBayless, Bryan, VP GTM FinanceIntel Success StoryAnaplan feels like a large organization. It always answers queries quickly and is noticeably ‘solutions-oriented’ rather than ‘sales-oriented’ i.e. not using every opportunity to sell more product and services. The team is full of praise for Anaplan and it is one of the best relationships I have ever had with a vendor.12.02.2018
101United AirlinesHagen, Cato, Senior Finance ManagerUnited Airlines ReferenzwebseiteVor Anaplan gab es nicht selten Hunderte von Dateien. Und es ist ein wahrer Alptraum, dabei den Überblick zu behalten. Noch schlimmer ist es bei einem Formelfehler. Dann müssen Sie Hunderte von Dateien reparieren. Oder wenn wir eine Änderung hatten – zum Beispiel, wenn wir einen neuen Flugzeugtyp hinzubekamen –, mussten wir das in so vielen verschiedenen Dateien ändern. Deshalb haben wir viel Zeit damit verbracht, Dateien zu pflegen und sicherzustellen, dass die Zahlen in Excel korrekt sind, statt wertvollere Aufgaben durchführen zu können.Before Anaplan, there could be hundreds of files and just keeping track of that is a nightmare. Even worse is if you have an formula error, you have to fix hundreds of files. Or if we had a change—for instance, if we had a new plane type—we had to change that in so many different files. So we spent a lot of time doing process work, just maintaining files, making sure the numbers are right in Excel instead of doing more value-added work.12.02.2018
