Pros

Easy to use, learn and adapt. Fast applications and helps automate analytical decision making in supply chain with great partners with excellent industry knowledge.
I've been very impressed with the functionality and capabilities that Anaplan offers. It also seems to be very versatile.
Overall though this is a great way to organize and track our forecasting, actuals, and goal metrics in order to measure success at an aggregate level.

Pros

Strong, secure environment - clearly developed with an appreciation of how to treat company sensitive data. Appropriate security levels are easily established and maintained.
Having never used it before, I was amazed at the ease of use. In addition to serving as a data repository for 10+ years of information, the variance analysis reporting is fantastic.
I feel the printing capabilities can be improved, along with the clarity of the printing itself. The customer service on this product is outstanding.

Cons

Clueless internal communications. Company is completely disorganized.
Thus, there comes lots of problems while storing data and scheduling plans. The creators should look upon these issues and update the features.
There are a few minor issues with the tool's functionality, but they are so insignificant.

Cons

This lack of functionality makes our work a bit confusing sometimes.
Our adaptive administrator sometimes struggles with the data integration from netsuite in some instances.
Implementation is costly and seems cumbersome.

Anaplan is a huge time saver

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Before Anaplan, we were on excel documents that required many versions and iterations. We started with financial planning as a model and have since expanded into other solutions for issues that have arisen. The goal is to continue to plug new models into this tool, like many power users I've seen at Anaplan conferences, in order to get all of our data on one platform.

Cons

Initial set up requires a lot of learning and time. Their training session is several days and still requires additional follow up work and communication with their implementation team. Graphs and data visualization is also far lacking compared with Tableau or even Excel.

Anaplan scalable and intelligent platform for business!

Reviewed 2 years ago

It is an easily affordable tool and has powerful computation features. Additionally, you can run various inventories, planning, scaling, and auditing functions here without any trouble. You can get maximum customer support while encountering any issue. On the whole, Anaplan is leading the way in success and many features are improving day by day. I would highly recommend you to give this tool a chance and you will love working on it. Try it out and enjoy the easy operational strategies.

Pros

There are enormous advantages that this software provides. The best thing about this software is the real-time calculation. It is easy to set up in the system and operate. Moreover, it shows instant results and offers every degree business a good accommodation. There are multiple customization options available for the user's facility.

Cons

Anaplan doesn't support reporting analytics and there is a need for large collaborative organizations for carrying out the execution. Thus, there comes lots of problems while storing data and scheduling plans. The creators should look upon these issues and update the features. Anaplan shows many buffer issues while editing cells and there come lots of problems while computing large data. It is quite easy to install in the system but not easy to operate for an average user. Complete training is required to understand and execute functions here.

Adaptive Insights is a powerful tool to manage your business that remains easy to use

Reviewed 8 years ago

We evaluated many of the SaaS software options available before settling on Adaptive Insights (Host Analystics, Anaplan, Tidemark, etc). None of them matched the value, ease of use, and results of Adaptive. If you are looking to move away from spreadsheets and have one source for your financial data and reporting data, I highly suggest looking into Adaptive Planning. It has all the features you would expect in your financial tool and they are constantly upgrading and adding addiitonal features. Customer support has been excellent and they actually seem to care about their customers. Highly recommended!
