Align Financial Plans With Demand and Inventory Plans

Workday Adaptive Planning integrates data from your financial and operational systems, decreasing the time and resources needed to create capex and opex budgets, demand and inventory plans, labor and expense budgets, and sales forecasts. With budgets, forecasts, and plans drawn from a single source of truth that everyone can trust—and a user experience that enables collaboration between finance and non-finance managers—Workday Adaptive Planning aligns the planning process across business units and geographies.

Dashboards to Measure and Monitor Bookings, Billings, and Backlog

Our intuitive dashboards allow you to easily measure actual bookings, billings, backlog, gross margins, inventory turns, COGS, and average prices compared to forecasts. Drill into the detail behind metrics to get leading and lagging indicators so that you can adjust production, inventory, pricing, resource allocation, and customer fulfillment decisions to meet revenue objectives.

Improve Visibility Into Consolidated, Multiple-Plant Operations

Consolidate complex data from worldwide divisions and manufacturing facilities to improve production planning, scheduling, and schedule adherence. Automate management reporting of margins, costs, and operating profits across all business units. Workday Adaptive Planning makes it simple to produce consolidated financial statements that update automatically with the financial close process.

Streamline Monthly Reporting of Production and Sales

Integrate forecast and actual data from ERP, sales automation, and production systems to create management reports as well as P&L, balance sheet, and cash flow statements that automatically update with business changes. With Workday Adaptive Planning, executives, business unit managers, and product managers always have a real-time, integrated view of operational and financial performance.
