Why Anaplan for Supply Planning?

Anaplan allows you reduce inventories by 20-30 percent while increasing customer service levels. With a real-time comprehensive picture of your projected inventory and related investment, you can see your consensus demand and adjust inventory targets based on customer service levels.
If you are like many companies, you may focus on production costs or investment costs, but lack the ability to incorporate all supply costs—such as transportation, inventory, and tax—into your decisions. With Anaplan’s Master Production Planning dashboard, you can identify tradeoffs across all cost elements by using planning views that are tightly integrated with one another.
With Anaplan, you can create, share, and collaborate on supply plans with all your stakeholders. From a single source and view of the data, your team can analyze the current situation, evaluate “what-if” scenarios in real time, and make go-forward decisions.
