Chicago-based IPA 100 firm Grant Thornton LLP (FY19 net revenue of $1.95 billion) has entered into an agreement with software company Anaplan Inc. to help give clients intelligent forecasting and continuous scenario planning options.
By integrating Anaplan’s solutions, Grant Thornton clients will have access to one integrated platform on which they can unify company-wide data, access real-time insights, continuously model scenarios and forecast with increased accuracy. The goal is to provide a one-stop shop of data and information, allowing clients to more strategically respond to market shifts and changing economic conditions.
“We’re teaming with Anaplan to help business leaders integrate disparate planning functions and activities across the organization,” says Grant Thornton sourcing and supply chain management principal Jonathan Eaton. “This opens the door to streamlined, consensus-driven decision-making and enhanced ‘what-if’ scenario planning across departments, including sales and marketing, operations, supply chain management and workforce planning.”
