Connect solutions across your business

Performance data from the past provides useful insight, but managers quickly ask, “What should we do going forward?”

Value-based decision making

We in Bluesprint help customers in various industries identify what drives value for a company and how it can be managed smarter. This is done through the implementation of the Anaplan Connected Planning platform.

Why Bluesprint and Anaplan?

What separates our solutions from other players in the market is the opportunity to start small and scale fast if needed. Instead of buying a fixed solution, our solution architects build a tailored platform with a strategic roadmap to meet your company’s business requirements. In addition to the Anaplan platforms agility, it has many other strengths:

  • Responsive and fast (calculations and uploads)
  • Customizable (no modification), easy to adapt the business model and planning needs
  • It has the supplier’s innovation and strategic roadmap
  • Start small — quick solutions
  • Competitive price and scalable licenses

Possible applications of our solutions

Bluesprint’s solutions can be adapted to all kinds of business planning, such as:

  • Financial Planning
  • Sales
  • Supply and demand
  • IT
  • HR
  • Logistics

 

Connected Planning means breaking down organizational silos by connected all business domains, enabling steady and constant planning management and the opportunity to get a more comprehensive performance picture. Let’s take Financial Planning, for example:

Implementing financial processes remotely can be a struggle due to less-than-optimal planning procedures, difficulties with collaboration, and data availability. Therefore, several of our customers, such as Tine and Voice use the Anaplan platform for Dynamic Financial Planning. We have developed and implemented xP&A solutions and assist them on their journey from static planning to dynamic Financial Planning processes. Improved collaboration empowers your teams to make informed decisions (based on live data), plan smarter, and reach strategic goals faster, giving your business a competitive advantage. For Voice, working in Anaplan has meant cutting down time spent on xP&A to hours instead of weeks.

How we deliver

Think big, start small, scale fast

Before we begin an implementation process, it’s important to establish:

  • what your company’s pain points are
  • what your company’s needs are
  • what your company’s Anaplan applications will be

The agility of the platform makes it possible to “go live” with one initial business area, adding more areas and functionality at a later stage.

Easy maintenance

We intend for your company to eventually own the solution yourself. It is therefore important to ensure user-friendliness, efficiency and easy maintenance.

People experienced with Microsoft Excel are able to quickly learn Anaplan modeling. Business users are essentially self-sufficient in creating and maintaining models and planning processes.

Own your data

To ensure long-term success, it’s crucial for your company to understand how to obtain the most value from your data. With Anaplan you can easily comprehend, manage and own your data. This is an important part of maintaining usability and effectiveness.

Project phases

The Anaplan implementation process is five-phased.

  • Pre-Release
  • Foundation
  • Implementation
  • Testing
  • Deployment

The application of methodology can be described as an “end-to-end document”. It covers all major execution phases.

Changes to the project are easy to implement along the way — an obvious advantage when quickly and efficiently developing the best solution for your business.

Pre-Release

High-level objectives, resource mix, and timeline are defined in a project Rough Cut and culminated in a signed Statement of Work (SOW).
