Why Anaplan for Project Planning?

Start with a blueprint for your project planning needs, modeled after best practices that you can easily modify to meet your specific process flows and drivers. Manage your project from start to finish, with real-time adjustments on project scope, project milestones and tasks, and project resource margins.
Use a library of KPIs, or build your own, to test and identify activity metrics and available resources for predicting your project completion. Anaplan’s project planning software offers you the ability to apply an unlimited number of driver-based “what-if” scenarios to model, for example, resource capacity plans, the impact of availability constraints, by skill set and experience, or other drivers.
View and manage project services bench for availability of resources by role, billable rate, and associated margin percentage. View each resource across multiple clients and multiple projects to identify conflicts in availability.
