News update on financial planning for business


October 2014
Hi all,

I hope you enjoyed your summer, as we now enter into Autumn, the season of falling leaves and Halloween. At Innovar we have been busy getting ready for the Anaplan Hub 2014. Our article below explains how you can come to this event for FREE as a guest of Innovar.

With Anaplan in mind,  we also have a couple of articles focusing on the Sales Forecasting element of Anaplan (One Little Button Makes A Huge Difference and Sales Forecasting Should I Bother?) and how it has dramatically improved this function within organisations.

We hope you find this useful and would welcome any feedback you may have. If you enjoyed reading this then please feel free to share this with your colleagues
