Excel is great. But how often have you seen an idea, developed in Excel, slowly morph into a ‘business critical’ application that everyone relies on, but that doesn’t scale, is impossible to maintain, versions everywhere, and the original developer is long gone? A real-life case of ‘boiling the frog’.
It’s a scenario that Thorogood director Julia Honigsberger has seen many times:
Usually we see clients struggle for far too long until they admit they need a better solution – at that point we often recommend Anaplan. This cloud-based planning and modeling tool really fits the space between Excel and other IT-implemented planning tools, with its focus on user-friendly modeling and Excel-busting features.
Watch this recorded webcast where Julia shares her experiences and proposes her ‘top-10’ Anaplan features that put Excel in the shade.
