I used Anaplan as a budgeting and forecasting tool to track MRR and ARR for a team of relationship managers. The fact that all relevant information is at your fingerprints to manage your forecasts with confidence.
You could also change the growth rate/growth method based on real time information, rather than rely only on historical data.
Also, you could connect your sales opportunities/stage from Salesforce to Anaplan, which will immediately adjust your forecast. Tons of really great functionality at your fingertips!
Multiple tabs often times caused the software to slow down.
When looking at data from tableau, software can be very slow, but not quite sure if it was an Anaplan issue or a server issue on our end.
We were trying to resolve the disconnection between our budgeting/forecasting mechanisms and our sales opportunities from Salesforce. As managers, we wanted to make every sales person accountable for their MRR /ARR forecast, while being able to make changes in real time, review, make adjustments based on seasonality or specific events affecting our customers, etc.
Anaplan exceed all our expectations !
