Connected Planning to achieve Better Business Outcomes

  • Revenue predictability amidst market uncertainty

  • Weighing sales investments against cashflow trade-offs

Complexity

Organisations have hundreds of systems with no common data or connections.

Sempre: Delivering Anaplan with Added Value

Here’s the difference Sempre can make to your Anaplan connected planning experience.

Drilling down your objectives

Your end goal is better business outcomes and smarter decisions. Anaplan is designed to help you get there

Hands-on training
Sempre provides targeted guidance that addresses the needs of your people. This could range from ground-up assistance for complete novices, through to advanced guidance and a review of existing procedures for more experienced users.

A periodic planning health check
For staying on track, the value of a fresh pair of eyes once in a while can be hard to over-estimate. One of the most appreciated aspects of our service involves a systematic review of your existing model design, integrity and reporting practices.

‘Best Practice’ functionality updates
When planning models are already deployed, revisiting them can seem like too much to ask. But this ignores the fact that functionality on the Anaplan platform is improving all the time. Through a ‘knowledge transfer’ session tailored to your needs, Sempre can ensure you are always in the best position.

Why Sempre?

As much (or as little) self-sufficiency as you need
Don’t be tied down to rigid service packages. Our support is fully tailored to the needs of our clients. Whether you intend to be fully self-sufficient – or you’d feel more comfortable with outsourcing key parts of your Anaplan project, our team can cover it.

Proactive training
It’s not about updating just for the sake of it. Rather, our approach keeps you appraised of the ‘best bits’ of Anaplan as and when updates arrive.

Business-focused expertise
Since 2011, our team has delivered over 200 successful planning projects. Technical know-how is a given (and between them, our consultants have more than five decades’ experience in this area). More than this, with corporate financial management included in our planning team skillset, we know precisely how a planning platform can be put to best use.
