Outdated FP&A platforms can leave today's enterprise struggling with limitations on model size, dimensionality, number of versions, and batching, not to mention constraints on the number of what-if scenarios you can run. Workday Adaptive Planning removes those limitations, freeing you to plan, budget or forecast as you want, when you want, and as much as you want.
We make it easy for you to plan and forecast around your fiscal calendar, academic calendar, funding schedules, revenue recognition schedules, and other business milestones. You’ll be able to analyse data by programme, department or business unit and roll everything up to a fully interconnected financial model for your business. Whether you’re budgeting expenses, forecasting revenue, planning your workforce, or projecting capital costs, our software gives you the versatility and flexibility you need.
It difficult to identify and measure the right KPIs, unless you’ve run scenarios and tested the results of your hypotheses. Whether to hire more salespeople, or expand into new markets, or delay releasing your new project; all of these decisions should be driven by data, not gut instinct. With a powerful, comprehensive enterprise planning solution, you’ll be able to identify a path forward, create measurable KPIs, and align your organisation around common goals.
We’re all about flexibility. Choose from multiple interfaces that let you work the way you’re accustomed to—even as you move away from manual data entry and strict modelling limits to powerful, automated processes and the ability to model anything you want. Our familiar, easy-to-use web-based planning sheets deliver an Excel-like experience with all the benefits of collaborative cloud modelling. No matter what interface you choose, you can take advantage of centralised data entry, instantly calculated results, organisational security, and workflow that eliminates duplicated time and effort.
Engaging the broader organisation in scenario planning and what-if analysis gives you a significant competitive advantage as well as a real-time view on challenges and opportunities. Your operational leaders often have more current information than you do. And when they can easily access data and share reports they can more easily collaborate with you to create robust models. When you work from the same, unified source of data, it easier to build alignment and much easier to increase broad adoption of your budgets and forecasts.
