Industry Leaders Turn to Adaptive Insights for Business Planning

Guardian Life, Maritz, and P.F. Chang’s, among others, share planning success stories using Adaptive Insights Business Planning Cloud at Adaptive Live

May 23, 2018

Adaptive Insights, powering a new generation of business planning, today opened Adaptive Live featuring some of its largest customers sharing their stories of planning transformation. With the global marketplace rewarding organizations that operate with agility, large, multi-divisional, and multinational enterprises are entrusting their enterprise-wide business planning in the cloud to Adaptive Insights.

Companies are adopting the Business Planning Cloud to address the inefficiencies that come from static, manual planning across departments and functions. When people all over the enterprise manually create plans on spreadsheets coupled with legacy, on-prem systems, they produce an ocean of individual operational plans. This siloed, static approach prevents decision-makers from seeing the big picture and aligning to run the business together. 

"We chose Adaptive Insights because it offered advanced functionality, the opportunity to automate our processes, and gave our planners the ability to collaborate in real-time,” said Holly Francois, senior vice president and corporate controller at Maritz. “Our business structure is complex. Adaptive Insights made it possible to standardize planning, forecasting, and reporting on the Business Planning Cloud across multiple business units. It’s easy to use and has made engagement of planners across the Maritz organization simple. Adaptive Insights has been a game-changer for us.”

American Family Insurance, Guardian Life, Maritz, P.F. Chang’s, Steve Madden and other market leaders have chosen Adaptive Insights for planning that’s powerful, easy to use for everybody in an organization, and at enterprise scale.

“Enterprises recognize that companywide, integrated planning is a strategic advantage,” said Tom Bogan, CEO of Adaptive Insights. “Silos across business units, functions, and even departments prevent many enterprises from understanding what is really happening with their business. That’s why our Business Planning Cloud platform has in-memory computing built for power and scale, yet is easy enough so that it can be used by everybody who plans. The result is visibility into every corner of the business, enabling even the largest organizations to make better, faster decisions.”  

Adaptive Live, the company’s annual user conference, is being held May 22-24 at the Venetian Las Vegas.
