— In Bluesprint, we believe that master data and transactional information needs to be a core focus in any Anaplan implementation.

Having a Data Hub is critical for successfully linking your company’s plans together in one system. Therefore, Bluesprint always implements a Data Hub during the first implementation at a new Anaplan customer.

— This way customers can easily understand, manage and own their data. This is important to maintain usability and effectiveness.

Many of our current customers used Excel to organize and process datasets before transitioning to Anaplan. Excel mostly works well on a smaller scale. However, when the organization and the size of datasets grows it can become cluttered, time consuming and prone to errors.

—Anaplan provides better control. It is a solid solution that simplifies and streamlines the company organization.

Erkinger has helped to kickstart many customers’ connected planning journey.

— It is always a joy to see companies embark on their connected planning journey, see how companies use Anaplan in different ways, and to be allowed to participate in the software development.
