Anaplan’s latest user experience platform enables increased collaborative planning and decision making of the enterprise with spontaneous data visualization and navigation.

FREMONT, CA: Anaplan, a pioneer in connected planning, unveiled a new mobile application and an updated platform user experience for access to relevant business information on the go. Revealed at Connected Planning Xperience 2019, a customer event by Anaplan in San Francisco, the enterprise’s easy-to-use and visually engaging platform transforms enterprise planning with an actionable, collaborative, and accessible digital experience across solutions and devices.

Echo Global Logistics, a provider of supply chain management services and technology-driven transportation, uses the Anaplan’s platform for the enterprise’s forecasting, budgeting, and planning. The business reduced its financial cycle by about 50 percent year over year, saving over six weeks of time. The concentration in the budget was possible upon leveraging the spontaneous nature and flexibility of the platform across the enterprise to engage in real-time analysis and build sophisticated business scenarios.

 Anaplan’s new experience facilitates users to visualize impacts in real-time, update plans quickly, and make decisions assertively. One instance is that sales representatives can update sales opening forecasts in real-time on the mobile application, providing sales management quick visibility to financial performance and sales attainment.

• A modern User Interface (UI) that allows company-wide planning and drives tailored experiences for each user of the platform. Consumers additionally enjoy highly customized, visually impactful reports and views to drive insightful analysis and planning for every enterprise group throughout.
