"The pressure on sales to meet and exceed ever-increasing revenue targets is higher than ever before. At the heart of this challenge lies a complex analytical and modeling problem that involves data spread across many rigid–and usually disconnected–systems, teams, and geographies. Leading companies handle this problem by focusing first on creating a sales performance plan that is data-driven and tied to business objectives. The research report conducted by Harvard Business Review provides you with how today's sales executives: • Overcome technology weaknesses to uncover sophisticated analytics • Change ingrained, cultural tendances of sales organizations • Adopt dynamic practices to respond to change quicker"

Incentive compensation represents the potential of delivering optimal sales results. But with up to 60% of sales reps’ income coming from incentive comp, it is crucial to get this right. Our study data has shown that ineffective compensation structures can lead to disengaged reps, high turnover, money left on the table, and low margins. The way we have designed and managed incentive compensation plans in the past may inhibit the sales force and prevent the business from scaling at the needed rate. Modeling and planning quickly become too complex for a spreadsheet-driven exercise.

In recent months, leaders at some of the world’s largest consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies have spoken publicly about how ZBB is helping them save on overhead costs, which can then be used to reinvest in growth through innovation or bolster their margins. As consumers increasingly have more choices, these companies are finding their margins squeezed, and with direct expenses already trimmed back to the bare minimum, the only place to look is sales, general and administration (SG&A), and other overhead expenses.

Viele Menschen arbeiten gern mit Spreadsheets, beispielsweise zur Verwaltung ihrer persönlichen Finanzen. Aber in einem professionellen Umfeld, in dem mehrere Personen Zugriff auf Daten benötigen, um die zu aktualisieren und zu ändern, gelangen Spreadsheets schnell an ihre Grenzen.

Das mag daran liegen, dass ihre massive Verbreitung auf Desktops und Laptops den Eindruck vermittelt, es würde sich um eine kostengünstige Option handeln. Wenn Sie Ihre Daten besser im Griff haben möchten und die Planung und Analyse nicht mehr mit Spreadsheets durchführen möchten, ist Anaplan die richtige Alternative: Die Plattform bietet ihnen nämlich nicht nur die intuitive Bedienung und Nutzerfreundlichkeit von Spreadsheets, sondern auch die Sicherheit und Skalierbarkeit einer Enterprise-Lösung

Prior to implementing the Anaplan platform, RSA Group had a tedious spreadsheet-based, nine-month planning cycle riddled with data quality issues, which was compounded by siloed, functional fragmentation across the company. As a result, the finance team was spending a significant amount of time cleaning data rather than analyzing it to provide insight to key stakeholders throughout the business. Using the Anaplan platform, RSA Group reduced their financial planning process from nine months to five months. The workforce planning team experienced a 50% improvement in productivity. The business can now own their connected plans, resulting in improved decision support to business users, as well as improved customer service and financial results.

As the trend of moving to the Cloud continues to flow from business function to business function, other trends are emerging. As organizations transform to eliminate complex functions, standardize and integrate systems to reduce costs, and minimize nonvalue add activities, they are challenging themselves to get the most from their investment. The shift from transactional to strategic, and from reporting to actionable and predictive analytics, positions companies for growth like never before. Many organizations look to break down silos, not only within their company but also within their industries, to share lessons and leverage efficiencies from others’ learnings. Our recommendation is to start by breaking down any silos that exist between finance, HR, and IT within your organization today—and discover what moving to cloud and truly adopting the SaaS lifestyle can do for your organization.

Startups with digital products are not commonly known to pursue small dreams. Once the basic idea of the product is designed and the industry niche has been identified, leadership is already thinking hard about where and to how many markets the product should be rolled out. The mission is critical: the product must clearly create added value for the user in the local market while reflecting the needs of their local community. The challenge is making those changes in each market without losing sight of the basic idea of the product. The success story of German ecommerce startup Yalwa - The Local Internet Company details three best practices on how young startups can realize the dream of a localized, and thus globally-positioned, digital product.
